Quality of life and economic implications of diabetic foot ulcers
Reiber GE. Quality of life and economic implications of diabetic foot ulcers. Paper presented at: Johnson and Johnson Annual Symposium; 1997 Oct 15; Cannes, France.
This research identified the treatment practices associated with diabetic foot ulcer healing and amputation in veterans and nonveterans. Foot ulcers are a major source of morbidity and precede the majority of amputations; therefore the treatment practices that yielded the best outcomes are important to VA clilnicians, patients and payers.
