Summary of "Atherogenic Index of Plasma: A Potential Biomarker for Clinical Diagnosis of Diabetic Foot Osteomyelitis."

Osteomyelitis of the diabetic foot is a costly health problem worldwide. Early and accurate diagnosis of the disease in patients with diabetic foot infections is needed urgently and will have an important role in diabetic foot management. This was a case-control study of subjects with diabetic foot ulcers admitted to Beijing Hospital from September 2015 to April 2018. We compared differences in the atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) in patients with or without osteomyelitis. The mean AIP of 165 patients with osteomyelitis was 0.23 ± 0.24, which was significantly higher than the mean AIP of patients without osteomyelitis. Higher AIP values were associated with a considerably higher risk of osteomyelitis with an odds ratio of 1.81 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.71-4.61), 4.70 (1.88-11.75), 5.03 (2.06-12.25) and 1.74 (1.33-2.28). Moreover, at a cut-off of 0.184, the AIP value showed a sensitivity of 84.3% and a specificity of 83.1% in the discriminatory identification of diabetic foot osteomyelitis. Elevated AIP was significantly associated with diabetic foot osteomyelitis, supporting the use of this index as a biomarker for the diagnosis in clinical practice.

A course of food intake prescribed for patients, that limits the amount of foods with a high GLYCEMIC INDEX.

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.

A subspecialty of pathology applied to the solution of clinical problems, especially the use of laboratory methods in clinical diagnosis. (Dorland, 28th ed.)

Work that consists of a conference of physicians on their observations of a patient at the bedside, regarding the physical state, laboratory and other diagnostic findings, clinical manifestations, results of current therapy, etc. A clinical conference usually ends with a confirmation or correction of clinical findings by a pathological diagnosis performed by a pathologist. "Clinical conference" is often referred to as a "clinico-pathological conference."
