Among patients diagnosed with diabetes, the lifetime incidence of foot ulcers is 15%. Infection is a common complication of foot ulcers, and 20% to 60% of infections result in diabetic foot osteomyelitis (DFO). Current treatment guidelines do not endorse any specific antibiotic agent for DFO, but small clinical trials suggest the addition of rifampin to antimicrobial regimens results in improved cure rates for osteomyelitis.
Diabetic foot ulcer and its complications are becoming more and more serious problems threatening people's health. In the last decade, multiple growth factors and their combined applications have shown potentials in promoting the healing process of diabetic foot ulcers. The purpose of this study is to perform a meta-analysis of the efficacy and safety of topical recombinant human epidermal growth factor (rhEGF) on the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. As of November 30, 2018, we had conducted a comprehensi...
Unilateral offloading footwear prescribed to patients with diabetic foot ulcers elevates one limb relative to the other, which may lead to limp and abnormal gait. This study investigated whether the unilateral foot ulcer and offloading combination negatively impacts gait function beyond diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
The management of severe and recalcitrant diabetic foot ulcers is challenging. Distraction osteogenesis is accompanied by vascularization and regeneration of the surrounding tissues. Longitudinal distraction of the proximal tibia stimulates increased and prolonged blood flow to the distal tibia. However, the effects of transverse distraction of the proximal tibia cortex on severe and recalcitrant diabetic foot ulcers are largely unknown.
Individuals with diabetes may develop diabetic foot ulcers due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Multiple factors influence the ulcer healing process; oxygen helps in facilitating the different stages of wound healing.
This post hoc analysis evaluates the association between the frequency of diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) debridement and the proportion of ulcers treated with active continuous diffusion of oxygen (CDO) that heal in a 12-week evaluation period.
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 w...
Diabetic Charcot foot (DCF) can cause gross structural deformities of the foot and ankle. The main objective of this study was to identify complications of DCF and its associated factors.
The present study aimed to decipher the bacterial infections in diabetic foot human patients in Pakistan and the anti-microbial susceptibility for clinical relevance. A total of 30 samples were collected from hospitalized type 2 diabetic patients (men and women) having foot ulcers. The collected samples were cultured on mannitol salt agar, Blood agar and MacConkey's agar and cetrimide agar. Gram staining and specific biochemical tests were performed to identify the invading bacteria. Antibiotic sensitivity ...
Skin substitutes are frequently used to treat chronic diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), and many different options are available. While the clinical efficacy of many products has been evaluated, a comprehensive cost-effectiveness analysis comparing the most popular skin substitutes and using the most recent cost data has been lacking.
Implementation of evidence-based care is central to achieving good results. In the UK, this involves implementing guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Here, , consultant editor, reports on a conference that outlined recently published NICE guidance on UrgoStart for treating leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers, and described how to incorporate this into everyday practice to drive significant cost savings and improve patient outcomes.
Diabetes is a life-long and debilitating disease that is fraught with both acute and chronic complications. Of particular concern to sufferers of the disease is the development of foot problems. These problems range from foot deformities to slowly healing or non-healing ulcers (that may necessitate amputation) and in the worst-case scenario, to death. Identification and prompt treatment of comorbid conditions, such as anemia may improve outcome in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). We determined the ...
To assess the usefulness of monthly thermography and standard foot care to reduce diabetic foot ulcer recurrence.
Ulcers in diabetic neuropathic feet are quite common but should be differentiated from the distinctive but rare ulceration due to rat bite in these insensate feet. We describe and analyse the features of rat bites in 2 patients with diabetic neuropathic feet and highlight 8 clinical features that should raise suspicion and alert the clinician to this possibility.
Because collagen is fundamental to wound healing and skin formation, collagen-containing dressing materials might be beneficial in treating diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), but supporting evidence is needed. Here, we examined the effectiveness and safety of collagen dressing material in DFU treatment.
Diabetic foot ulceration is a common and severe complication of diabetes, causing substantial social, medical and economic burdens. Treatment of foot ulcers remains challenging, thus requiring increasing awareness and more efficient management. This study investigates the efficacy of ointments, containing as main active ingredient the olive oil extract of the marine isopod Ceratothoa oestroides, in the treatment of patients with diabetic foot ulcers. Fifty-two patients were allocated into four treatment gro...
Diabetes is one of the most widespread diseases in Germany. Common complications are diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), which are associated with a cost-intensive treatment and serious adverse events, such as infections, amputations. This cost-effectiveness analysis compares two treatment options for patients with DFU: a TLC-NOSF dressing versus a neutral dressing, assessed through a European double-blind randomised controlled trial (RCT), Explorer.
To use wearable near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to determine the effect of Buerger exercises on diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) healing.
This study aimed to analyse the characteristics of patients, including demographics, medical history and treatment, with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) during their first follow-up visit to a general practitioner (GP).
As a complication of diabetes mellitus (DM), one of the leading causes for death and disability for DM patients is diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a critical role in wound healing of DFUs. miR-203 is specifically enriched in keratinocytes and has been shown to target interleukin 8 (IL-8), which acts as an activator for the EMT process. In this study, we explored the interaction between miR-203 and IL-8 in DFU rat models and human keratinocyte cells, underlying t...
The off-loading of diabetic foot ulcers is the most urgent and theoretically the easiest treatment to implement. Its effectiveness has been proven for decades by randomized controlled studies on neuropathic ulcers that heal with a cast in an average of 6 weeks with a high level of evidence. Total contact casts are not widely used throughout the world, although it is the standard treatment. Off-loading shoes are certainly effective but only if they are worn. It is the prescriber's challenge to obtain maximum...
This randomized clinical trial was conducted to assess the role of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) gel as a treatment of clean non-healing diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) in comparison with regular dressing with saline as a control.
To investigate the dependability of a thermal gadget connecting to a smartphone. Comparing the exact temperature of damaged tissue with adjacent parts of the limb and to evaluate the changes in thermal conductivity of hard-to-heal wounds in patients with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU).
Regenerative medicine products such as autologous platelet-rich plasma (autologous PRP) gel may speed up the process of healing. Clinical studies show promising results in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), however there is lack of scientific evidence of autologous PRP effectiveness in treating leg ulcers of other aetiology. This study evaluates the effectiveness of autologous PRP gel in the treatment of hard-to-heal leg ulcers compared with existing conventional treatment.
Non-healing chronic ulcers are a serious complication of diabetes and are a major healthcare problem. While a host of treatments have been explored to heal or prevent these ulcers from forming, these treatments have not been found to be consistently effective in clinical trials. An understanding of the changes in gene expression in the skin of diabetic patients may provide insight into the processes and mechanisms that precede the formation of non-healing ulcers. In this study, we investigated genome wide c...
