KOL-Index: 16797 . OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the new Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Wound, Ischemia, and foot Infection (WIfI) classification system correlates with important clinical outcomes for limb salvage and wound healing. METHODS: A total of 201 consecutive patients with threatened limbs treated from 2010 to 2011 in an academic medical center were analyzed. These ...

KOL-Index: 16621 . BackgroundThe aim of this paper was to create an updated Australian guideline on footwear for people with diabetes.MethodsWe reviewed new footwear publications, (inter)national guidelines, and consensus expert opinion alongside the 2013 Australian footwear guideline to formulate updated recommendations.ResultWe recommend health professionals managing people with diabetes should: (1) Advise ...
Known for People Diabetes | Foot Ulceration | Health Professionals | International Guidelines
KOL-Index: 14800 . BACKGROUND: Footwear and offloading techniques are commonly used in clinical practice for preventing and healing of foot ulcers in persons with diabetes. The goal of this systematic review is to assess the medical scientific literature on this topic to better inform clinical practice about effective treatment. METHODS: We searched the medical scientific literature indexed in PubMed, ...
Known for Plantar Pressure | Foot Ulcers | Offloading Interventions | Controlled Studies
KOL-Index: 14258 . OBJECTIVE: We have previously demonstrated that high plantar pressures can predict foot ulceration in diabetic patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate both the relationship between forefoot and rearfoot plantar pressure in diabetic patients with different degrees of peripheral neuropathy and their role in ulcer development. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Diabetic patients of a ...

KOL-Index: 13637 . OBJECTIVE: To report the incidence of diabetes-related lower-extremity complications in a cohort of patients enrolled in a diabetes disease management program. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We evaluated screening results and clinical outcomes for the first 1,666 patients enrolled in a disease management program for a period of 24 months (50.3% men, aged 69.1 +/- 11.1 years). RESULTS: The ...

KOL-Index: 12954 . BACKGROUND: Footwear and offloading techniques are commonly used in clinical practice for the prevention and treatment of foot ulcers in diabetes, but the evidence base to support this use is not well known. The goal of this review was to systematically assess the literature and to determine the available evidence on the use of footwear and offloading interventions for ulcer prevention, ...
Known for Plantar Pressure | Foot Ulcers | Offloading Interventions | Ulcer Prevention
KOL-Index: 12630 . The International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) has published evidence-based guidelines on the prevention and management of diabetic foot disease since 1999. This guideline is on the use of offloading interventions to promote the healing of foot ulcers in people with diabetes and updates the previous IWGDF guideline. We followed the GRADE methodology to devise clinical ...

KOL-Index: 12282 . Critical limb ischemia, first defined in 1982, was intended to delineate a subgroup of patients with a threatened lower extremity primarily because of chronic ischemia. It was the intent of the original authors that patients with diabetes be excluded or analyzed separately. The Fontaine and Rutherford Systems have been used to classify risk of amputation and likelihood of benefit from ...
Known for Risk Stratification | Threatened Limb | Lower Extremity | Wound Ischemia
KOL-Index: 12138 . The outcome of management of diabetic foot ulcers is poor and there is uncertainty concerning optimal approaches to management. We have undertaken a systematic review to identify interventions for which there is evidence of effectiveness. A search was made for reports of the effectiveness of interventions assessed in terms of healing, ulcer area or amputation in controlled clinical studies ...

KOL-Index: 11611 . BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine the degree to which pressure on the plantar aspect of the forefoot is reduced following percutaneous lengthening of the Achilles tendon in diabetic patients who are at high risk for ulceration of the foot. METHODS: Ten diabetic patients who had a history of neuropathic plantar ulceration of the forefoot were enrolled in a laboratory ...
Known for Achilles Tendon | Diabetic Patients | Risk Ulceration | Plantar Aspect
KOL-Index: 11564 . BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot neuropathy (DFN) is one of the most important complications of diabetes mellitus; its early diagnosis and intervention can prevent foot ulcers and the need for amputation. Thermometry, measuring the temperature of the feet, is a promising emerging modality for diabetic foot ulcer prevention. However, patient compliance with at-home monitoring is concerning. ...
Known for Diabetic Foot | Study Protocol | Randomized Controlled Trial | 2 Diabetes
KOL-Index: 11557 . AIMS: The outcome of foot ulcers is affected by wound depth, infection, ischaemia and glycaemic control. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of ulcer size, site, patient's age, sex and type and duration of diabetes on the outcome of diabetic foot ulcers. METHODS: Diabetic patients with new foot ulcers presenting during a 12-month period had demographics and ulcer ...
Known for Foot Ulcers | Ulcer Size | Duration Diabetes | Patients Age
KOL-Index: 11263 . AIMS: Among people with diabetes, 10-25% will experience a foot ulcer. Research has shown that supplementation with arginine, glutamine and β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate may improve wound repair. This study tested whether such supplementation would improve healing of foot ulcers in persons with diabetes. METHODS: Along with standard of care, 270 subjects received, in a double-blinded fashion, ...

KOL-Index: 11132 . BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot infections are a common and serious problem, yet few randomised trials of adequate quality have compared the efficacy of the various antibiotic regimens available for their treatment. Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of ertapenem versus piperacillin/tazobactam for foot infections. METHODS: We did a randomised, double-blinded, multicentre trial in ...
