del-Aguila M, Pugh J, Reiber GE. How does delay in seeking care for a diabetic foot lesion influence outcome? Paper presented at: American Diabetes Association Annual Scientific Session; 1998 Sep 15; Chicago, IL.
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.
