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...
The aim of this study is to evaluate how treatment with total contact cast (TCC) affects the balance of proteases in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) as they heal.
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 of uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. He had developed a deep ulcer to the calcaneus of his left foot, which was 12x7 cm in size and infected with multi-drug-resistant . He was admitted to hospital for the non-healing diabetic foot ulcer and uncontrollable fever and was a candidate for amputation. He was treated wi...
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.
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...
To estimate the healthcare costs of diabetic foot disease in England.
Sustained infection and chronic inflammation are the most common features and complex mechanisms of diabetic foot disease. In this study, we examined the expression and functional roles of human endogenous α defensins in diabetic foot ulcer. The expression levels of human α defensins HNP1, HNP3, and HNP4 were significantly higher in the wound center than the edge of diabetic foot ulcers. And the inflammatory cytokine interleukin IL-8 (IL-8) was also highly expressed in wound exudates. In human foreskin fi...
The objective of this paper is to present the secondary safety and efficacy outcomes from two studies of focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) used adjunctively with standard care in the treatment of neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) (1A or 2A on the University of Texas grading scheme), compared with sham treatment and standard care.
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 ...
To evaluate the methodological approaches used to assess the cost consequences of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) in published scientific papers.
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.
Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a leading cause of high morbidity among diabetic patients. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Kalan et al. (2019) examine the microbial bio-burden of DFUs and reveal biofilm and virulence pathways in the microbial metagenome that are linked to clinical healing outcomes.
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...
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.
NTRODUCTION Diabetic foot ulcers are a chronic complication in patients with diabetes mellitus. They appear as a result of the combination of diabetic polyneuropathy and angiopathy, and in many cases require amputation of the affected extremity. Clinical trials have demonstrated that repeated local infiltration with Heberprot-P can improve healing of chronic diabetic foot ulcers. Although there is evidence of its effects as a granulation stimulator and on cell migration and proliferation, genetic control me...
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).
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.
This cross-sectional study assesses the profile and antibiotic susceptibility of aerobic bacterial pathogens associated with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
Forefoot ulcerations in patients with diabetes are quite common. Underlying mechanical deformities of the foot in combination with neuropathy are the most important risk factors for ulcer development and adequate offloading is the mainstay of management. Most ulcers heal with local wound care, adequate blood supply, and pressure relief. If a foot deformity cannot be accommodated, ulcers will not heal or may recur. In this case, surgical correction of deformity is necessary. This paper reviews the most commo...
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.
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of the erbium:yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) laser on diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) that had not responded to standard care. We retrospectively evaluated 22 nonhealing DFUs that received at least 4 weeks of standard wound care, demonstrated poor healing response, and subsequently were treated with an erbium:YAG laser. We measured the percent wound area reduction (PWAR) for the 4 weeks before initiating laser therapy and the PWAR for 4 weeks after the initia...
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...
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, their most important role is in guiding accurate antibiotic treatment, as they provide more accurate microbiological information than superficial soft tissue samples in patients with diabetic foot osteomyelitis.
It is hypothesized that cumulative extended application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) can be beneficial to sustain the effect of ESWT and improve the long-term outcome in chronic diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
Therapeutic footwear becomes the first treatment line in the prevention of diabetic foot ulcer and future complications of diabetes. Previous studies and the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot have described therapeutic footwear as a protective factor to reduce the risk of re-ulceration. In this study, we aimed to analyze the efficacy of a rigid rocker sole to reduce the recurrence rate of plantar ulcers in patients with diabetic foot.
