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.
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.
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 the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers with osteomyelitis was evaluated.
Foot orthoses are increasingly used by runners despite the controversy about whether its use can reduce the risk of overuse injuries. Some authors have found modifications in plantar pressures with the use of foot orthoses, which could produce changes in surface skin temperature of the foot soles. The aim of the study was to analyse the effects of custom-made and prefabricated foot orthoses on skin temperature of different regions of both foot soles after running. Twenty-four participants carried out a maxi...
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...
The drug injury relief system in Taiwan was implemented 20 years ago, with the goal of providing timely relief for drug injuries incurred by the proper use of legal drugs. This system utilizes a non-litigation expert review process to evaluate drug injury relief applications, and 2,732 applications have been reviewed from 1999 to 2016. Of these, 1,572 applications received relief payments, an approval rate of 58%. Average review timeframes per application have decreased from 248 days (2003-2011) to 182 days...
An evaluation of the different types of labor pain relief, preferred methods of pain relief, and effects of social media on awareness and knowledge among pregnant women. A cross-sectional study in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
To evaluate the attitudes of pregnant women towards different forms of labor pain relief, preferred methods of pain relief, and the effects of social media on their awareness and knowledge.
Neuropathic pain reduces the life qualities of patients with Diabetes mellitus. Clinical guidelines recommend relief in diabetic neuropathic pain through the use of some antidepressants, anticonvulsants, opioids as well as capsaicin cream or lidocaine patches. However, since the majority of patients do not or partially respond to current treatments, there is a growing necessity for new drugs increasing the pain relief in patients with diabetes. Therefore, based on the therapeutic potential of antidepressant...
To systematically review clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) on diabetes foot and assess the consistency of recommendations, quality of CPGs and to present an evidence-map for explicating research trends and gaps. We performed a literature search on PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science, guideline databases and websites of diabetes society to include the diabetic CPGs. The basic information, recommendations for the diabetic foot, methodological quality and reporting quality of diabetic CPGs were exacted by the...
To estimate the healthcare costs of diabetic foot disease in England.
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...
Recurrence rates of diabetic foot ulcers vary widely in the published literature. The aim of this systematic review is to estimate recurrence rates of diabetic foot ulcers. We did a PubMed search, and performed a review of reference lists for studies reporting recurrence of diabetic foot ulcers. The weighted relative risk (RR) and corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI) for recurrence was estimated. 49 studies reporting recurrence of diabetic foot ulcers were included. A pooled estimate for recurrence ra...
This pilot case series examined feasibility of anterior radiofrequency approach under combined ultrasound and fluoroscopy guidance to control pain from avascular necrosis of the hip. Data on 11 consecutive patients were collected on longevity of cooled radiofrequency ablation (CRFA), pain relief and opioid use. The average age was 56 (28-66), BMI 29.5 (16.5-34), in four women and three men. Their average opioid use was 92 mg MS04 equivalents (median 35 mg). The pain score decreased to 3.3 after the CRFA...
This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of music listening for procedural pain relief using two different observational pain tools during endotracheal suctioning.
Pre-emptive scalp infiltration with ropivacaine plus methylprednisolone versus ropivacaine alone for relief of postoperative pain after craniotomy in children (RP/MP vs RP): a study protocol for a randomised controlled trial.
Pre-emptive scalp infiltration with local anaesthetics is the simplest and most effective method to prevent postoperative incisional pain. However, local infiltration of an anaesthetic only provides relatively short-term pain relief. Methylprednisolone (MP) treatment, administered as an adjuvant at the wound site, has been shown to provide satisfactory pain management after lumbar laminectomy. However, there is no evidence regarding the efficacy of MP infiltration for the relief of postoperative pain after ...
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 the importance of appropriate therapy for a given severity of diabetic foot infection, and highlighted the ongoing risk such patients have for subsequent invasive life-threatening infection should diabetic foot ulcers fail to heal. The authors describe the case of a man with diabetes who had prolonged, delayed he...
Cortical spreading depolarization (CSD) is the electrophysiological substrate of migraine aura, and a putative trigger of trigeminovascular activation and migraine headache. Many migraineurs report stress or relief after a stress triggers an attack. We tested whether various stress conditions might modulate CSD susceptibility and whether this is dependent on genetic factors. Male and female wild type and familial hemiplegic migraine type1 (FHM1) knock-in mice heterozygous for the S218 L missense mutation ...
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.
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 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).
Abnormal peak plantar pressure in neuropathic diabetic foot during walking activities is well managed through the use of appropriate design and material selection for the fabrication of custom made insoles (CMI). The redistribution of plantar pressure is possible by selecting an appropriate material for the fabrication of CMI. The walking activities may alter the plantar pressure distribution; which may differ while using CMI with different materials.
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.
