Treatment and outcomes of diabetic foot ulcers
Reiber GE. Treatment and outcomes of diabetic foot ulcers. Paper presented at: American Diabetes Association Annual Scientific Session; 1998 Sep 15; Boston, MA.
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.
