Diabetic amputations in the VA: Are there opportunities for interventions
Fotio G, Reiber GE, Carter J, Smith DG. Diabetic amputations in the VA: Are there opportunities for interventions. Paper presented at: Society of General Internal Medicine Annual Meeting; 1997 Oct 15; Washington, DC.
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 clinicians, patients and payers.
