    OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare mortality risks of patients with Charcot arthropathy with those of patients with diabetic foot ulcer and those of patients with diabetes alone (no ulcer or Charcot arthropathy).

    RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort of 1,050 patients with incident Charcot arthropathy in 2003 in a large health care system was compared with patients with foot ulcer and those with diabetes alone. Mortality was determined during a 5-year ...

    OBJECTIVE: To compare risks of lower-extremity amputation between patients with Charcot arthropathy and those with diabetic foot ulcers.

    RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort of patients with incident Charcot arthropathy or diabetic foot ulcers in 2003 was followed for 5 years for any major and minor amputations in the lower extremities.

    RESULTS: After a mean follow-up of 37 +/- 20 and 43 +/- 18 months, the Charcot and ulcer groups had 4.1 and 4.7 amputations per 100 ...

    BACKGROUND: Syme ankle disarticulation is an amputation level that minimizes disability and preserves function, but it has been used sparingly in patients with diabetes mellitus. Surgeons have avoided this level because of the perceived high risk for wound failure, wound infection, or migration of the heel pad, which makes prosthesis use difficult.

    METHODS: Ninety-seven adult patients with diabetes mellitus who underwent Syme ankle disarticulation because of a neuropathic foot with an ...

    PURPOSE: To examine the association of obesity, peripheral neuropathy, and other risk factors with the Charcot arthropathy incidence rate in a large diabetic population.

    METHODS: The Department of Veterans Affairs inpatient and outpatient administrative datasets were used to identify persons with diabetes in 2003. Logistic regressions were used to model the likelihood of a person developing Charcot arthropathy as a function of individual characteristics, obesity, peripheral neuropathy, ...

    BACKGROUND: The Foot Function Index (FFI) is a self-report, foot-specific instrument measuring pain and disability and has been widely used to measure foot health for over twenty years. A revised FFI (FFI-R) was developed in response to criticism of the FFI. The purpose of this review was to assess the uses of FFI and FFI-R as were reported in medical and surgical literature and address the suggestions found in the literature to improve the metrics of FFI-R.

    METHODS: A systematic ...

    BACKGROUND: The Foot Function Index (FFI) is a widely used self-reported measure of health-related foot function. Several areas have been identified for potential improvement, and this study responds to such criticisms. The objectives of this study were to: (1) develop a theoretical model of foot functioning, (2) develop a revised FFI (FFI-R), and (3) field-test the FFI-R.

    METHODS: A literature review was conducted to develop the theoretical model. The FFI-R items were developed from the ...

    Thirty-eight amputations of the foot and ankle were performed in patients with peripheral vascular insufficiency over a 20-month period. Amputation level selection was based on clinical examination, a minimum ankle-brachial index of 0.5 as a measure of vascular supply, serum albumin of 3.0 gm/dl as a measure of tissue nutrition, and a total lymphocyte count of 1500 as a measure of immunocompetence. Transcutaneous oxygen tension was measured at the midfoot and ankle levels prior to ...

    Tears of the plantar plate can be a source of significant forefoot pain, leading to alterations of foot function and gait. The objective of the present retrospective study was to further determine the value of ultrasound imaging in diagnosing plantar plate tears after clinical evaluation through a comparison of the ultrasound and intraoperative examination findings. Eight patients were identified who had undergone surgical intervention for a painful lesser metatarsophalangeal joint after ...

    BACKGROUND: Disagreement exists regarding the relationship between body weight and foot ulceration risk among diabetic persons.

    METHODS: We used a nested case-control design to estimate the association between body mass index (BMI) and 1-year and 5-year foot ulceration risk. We obtained data on all diabetic patients < 60 years of age who were treated in the US Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare system in 2003. Patient characteristics and co-morbidities were obtained at baseline. ...

    The association between BMI and amputation risk is not currently well known. We used data for a cohort of diabetic patients treated in the US Department of Veterans Affairs Healthcare System in 2003. Men aged <65 years at the end of follow-up were examined for their amputation risk and amputation-free survival during the next 5 years (2004-2008). Compared to overweight individuals (BMI 25-29.9 kg/m(2)), the risks of amputation and treatment failure (amputation or death) were higher for ...

    Forty-nine feet in 47 patients with midfoot neuropathic foot deformity were referred for care to a comprehensive foot salvage clinic and followed for an average of 3.6 years. Twenty-three initially presented without open ulcers. Two underwent elective Syme's ankle disarticulation amputation, and the others were kept ambulatory with a combination of periods of nonweightbearing cast immobilization, accommodative extra-depth shoes with custom orthotics, and ankle-foot orthoses. Twenty-six ...

    OBJECTIVE: Systolic blood pressure (SBP) variability is emerging as a new risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, diabetic nephropathy, and other atherosclerotic conditions. Our objective is to examine whether it has any prognostic value for lower-extremity amputations.

    RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This is a nested case-control study of a cohort of patients with diabetes aged<60 years and treated in the US Department of Veterans Healthcare system in 2003. They were followed over five ...

    After the 1990 establishment of a multidisciplinary foot salvage clinic, 1346 diabetic patients, at high risk for the development of foot ulcers and eventual lower limb amputation, were followed for 4 years. Of the 224 high-risk patients admitted to the hospital, 74 amputations (5.5%) of all or part of a lower limb were performed. Patients undergoing amputation were younger, more severely ill, and required more frequent hospitalizations because of greater organ system involvement. They ...
