Foot re-ulcerations in diabetes: Which important markers for effective prevention
Riesch B, Assal J, Reiber GE. Foot re-ulcerations in diabetes: Which important markers for effective prevention. Paper presented at: International Diabetes Federation World Triennial Congress; 1997 Oct 15; Helsinki, Finland.
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.
