Objective: to compare the effectiveness of irremovable total contact casts and custom made temporary footwear to heal neuropathic foot ulcerations in individuals with diabetes
In this prospective clinical trail, 43 patients with plantar ulcer grade 1 or 2 (wagner scale) were randomized to one of two off-loading modalities: total contact cast or custom-made temporary footwear.outcomes assessed were wound surface area reduction (square cm.)and time to wound healing (days0 at 2,4,8 and 16 weeks. to evaluate safety, possible side effects were recorded at each follow-up visit.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment
