Diabetic foot ulcers are associated with a high morbidity and are common cause of non-traumatic lower limb amputations. The effect of debridement and the use of an adjuvant local antibiotic carrier in...
Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) prevalence is as high as 25% and 40-80% of DFUs become infected (DFI). About 20% of infected ulcers will spread to bone causing diabetic foot osteomyelitis (DFO). DFU costs M...
Diabetic foot ulcer care demonstrates a beneficial approach to overcoming problems in patients with diabetes. This approach is frequently given but is not always successfully implemented due to its fr...
Diabetic foot complications result from the association between peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy and a precarious healing process. Peripheral neuropathy observed in diabetics affects all compon...
Knowledge of risk factors is crucial to develop management and treatment protocols for the prevention of lower extremity amputation for patients with diabetic foot infections (DFI).
The purpose of this research study is to determine if rifampin, an antibiotic (a medicine that treats infections), is effective in treating osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) of the foo...
Hypothesis:Surgical treatment of osteomyelitis in diabetic foot is more effective that medical treatment through antibiotherapy and leads wound healing in ulcers complicated with bone infe...
Osteomyelitis is a risk factor for lower extremity amputation in diabetic people. Antibiotic therapy allows a remission in 60 to 80% of cases. However the optimal duration of antibiotic th...
Diabetic foot osteomyelitis is a common and serious complication of diabetes. While the diagnosis of soft tissue infection can be made with simple physical examination in most cases, bone ...
This is a randomized, unblinded, single-centre study. After eventual surgical debridement (not amputation), patients will be randomized to receive 1 of 2 targeted antibiotic regimens, in t...
Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.
A system of safety management (abbreviated HACCP) applied mainly to the food industry. It involves the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards, from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of finished products.
Distortion or disfigurement of the foot, or a part of the foot, acquired through disease or injury after birth.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
