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 investigate whether regular measurement of skin foot temperature with a novel device (DFUPS) will prevent ulcer recurrence in diabetic patients at high risk...
Background: Diabetic patients are frequently showed with foot ulceration as a common complication which increases to 20% in admission. Low-level laser therapy is used to control foot ulcer...
Diabetic foot ulcer care demonstrates a beneficial approach to overcoming problems in patients with diabetes. This approach is frequently given but is not always successfully implemented due to its fr...
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.
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...
Diabetic foot ulcers are a major burden to patients and to the healthcare systems of many countries. To prevent and/or treat ulcers more effectively, predictive biomarkers are needed. We examined temp...
Previous reliability studies on peak plantar pressure measurements in patients with previous diabetic foot ulceration (DFU) did not stratify their analyses according to whether the foot had a previous...
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.
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.
