Dr. Lorenzo Patrone

Dr. Lorenzo Patrone is a Vascular and Interventional Radiology Consultant with London North West Healthcare NHS Trust.

Dr. Aparna Baheti discusses The 'Woundosome' Concept on the BackTable 452 Podcast

Dr. Aparna Baheti

Dr. Aparna Baheti is a practicing Interventional Radiologist in Tacoma, Washington.


Dr. Patrone explains his interest in critical limb ischemia (CLI) and describes how he reached out to colleagues around the world with the intention of drafting a paper that summarizes research in below-the-ankle interventions and increases awareness of the woundosome concept.

He explains the woundosome concept, which aims to understand how each patient’s foot vasculature influences the effectiveness of below-the-ankle interventions and tissue healing. Understanding each patient’s anatomy, having adequate imaging of the foot, obtaining pedal acceleration times, and using micro-oxygen sensors are strategies to assess wound perfusion, which is integral for treatment planning and prognosis. He illustrates these techniques in a case study of a non-healing wound.

Finally, Dr. Patrone shares some technical tips for below-the-ankle interventions, including the benefits of ipsilateral antegrade access, sheath selection, and strategic contrast administration.
