KOL-Index: 25 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 ...

KOL-Index: 24 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 ...

KOL-Index: 20 Amputation of the foot may be indicated when neuropathy, vascular disease, and ulcerative deformity have led to soft tissue necrosis, osteomyelitis, uncontrollable infection, or intractable pain.

KOL-Index: 15 Consumptive coagulopathy resulting in a disseminated intravascular coagulation is most often seen in infectious diseases and hematologic malignancies. Solid tumors may be associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation that results in gangrene of the upper extremity. A case report of lower-extremity gangrene as the pathology for gastric carcinoma is presented. The need for a ...

KOL-Index: 13 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 ...

KOL-Index: 13 OBJECTIVE: We created a new diabetes foot examination clinical reminder to directly populate a foot risk registry and examined its accuracy versus administrative data. METHODS: A pre- and post-test design assessed accuracy of coding foot risk and clinician acceptability. The intervention hospital's reminder was replaced with a dialogue tick box containing the International Diabetic Foot ...

KOL-Index: 13 Aneurysms of the pedal arteries are uncommon; however, they can be identified upon clinical exam and confirmed by angiogram and color-flow duplex scan. Surgical treatment options include ligation or primary repair. The authors present a case of an aneurysm of the dorsalis pedis artery in a diabetic patient. Primary repair of the aneurysm was accomplished using a venous autograft patch. The ...

KOL-Index: 12 Human fibroblast-derived dermis skin substitute is a well-studied treatment for diabetic foot ulcers; however, no case series currently exist for its use in healing postoperative wounds of the lower extremity. A retrospective analysis was conducted on 32 lower extremity postoperative wounds treated weekly with human fibroblast-derived dermis skin substitute. Postoperative wounds were defined ...

KOL-Index: 11 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 ...

KOL-Index: 11 An amputation of the lower extremity is erroneously considered a failure of conservative care or an unpreventable outcome of diabetes. In the diabetic population, a lower extremity amputation is often the result of ischemia or uncontrolled infection. This chapter will discuss multiple factors that should be evaluated to optimize the outcome of any amputation. The technique and important ...
