Diabetic foot infections are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, and successful treatment often requires an aggressive and prolonged approach. Recent work has elucidated th...
Foot ulceration is the most frequently recognised lower extremity complication in diabetic patients. Predicting wound healing is an essential step in the management of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), as i...
To investigate the expression of miR-217 and HIF-1α/VEGF pathway in patients with diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) and its effect on angiogenesis in DFU rats.
Yes. Bone biopsies play both a crucial diagnostic and interventional role in the management of diabetic foot infection. Although bone biopsies are not required in every case of diabetic foot infection...
Non-healing diabetic foot ulcers are a common and costly complication of type 2 diabetes and can result in lower extremity amputation. This case study concerns a 51-year-old man with a 17-year history...
Foot complications are among the most serious and costly complications of diabetes. People with diabetes have a 10-fold increased risk for a leg or foot amputation compared to those that d...
This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, sequential dose escalation study in diabetic subjects with a diabetic lower leg or foot ulcer. All subjects will receive standard-of...
Diabetic foot ulcer is one of the most serious, most costly and at times life threatening complication of diabetes. The lifetime incidence of foot ulcer occurrence in diabetes is up to 25%...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether placing stent(s) for a blockage in a leg vein will help improve the healing of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). The investigators know from havi...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether regular measurement of skin foot temperature with a novel device (DFUPS) will prevent ulcer recurrence in diabetic patients at high risk...
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.
Lesion on the surface of the skin of the foot, usually accompanied by inflammation. The lesion may become infected or necrotic and is frequently associated with diabetes or leprosy.
The process in which the neutrophil is stimulated by diverse substances, resulting in degranulation and/or generation of reactive oxygen products, and culminating in the destruction of invading pathogens. The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
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.
