Lazio Region – Santori, FDI: “In Lazio at risk the prevention and fight against scleroderma”
“Scleroderma is a rare chronic disease that provided within Asl Roma 2 its own pathway built around the patient and aimed at early diagnosis. This path had been arrived at in November 2015 when the UOSD Microangiopathies ischemic and scleroderma ulcers was appropriately activated to expand the range of care offered. Today we are taking a step backward and demolishing an excellence built with the support of patients’ associations.
It raises, in fact, deep concern that in the proposed corporate reorganization of Asl Roma 2 there is no reference to this important facility that for years has been at the side of families and scleroderma patients. At risk is the prevention and fight against scleroderma, and all the patient protection associations have already written a very harsh note to the relevant bodies without getting the necessary reassurances”. This is what Fabrizio Santori, councilor of Fratelli d’Italia – National Alliance in the Lazio Region, declares.
“In the corporate act,” Santori continued – the CRIIS, the interdisciplinary pathway that must be made around the patient , with early diagnosis necessary to determine whether he is a candidate for vascular therapy aiming, therefore, at an intervention of prevention of ulcers, is not mentioned and therefore is not in fact recognized. To decide to assimilate this pathway into the Advanced Diagnosis and Treatment of Trophic Ulcers Service is to underestimate the needs of scleroderma patients. You can not put together the treatment of ulcers with trophic ulcers, the diabetic foot in angiology when it is something else, within the medical area they must have their location.
Rationalizations must be made taking into account the needs of frail people, without forgetting that those who suffer need essential care. And then, only with early diagnosis can help the sick, early diagnosis also saves. We are tired every day of telling cases of cuts wanted by the Zingaretti junta on the skin of our weak fellow citizens.
Therefore, I have already requested,” Santori concludes – that Asl Roma 2 take into account the requests of patients and patients’ associations and decide to include the UOSD Microangiopathy ischemic and scleroderma ulcers again in the corporate act, thus recognizing the CRIIS.”.
