Is diabetic foot ulcer patients' footwear influenced by a history of prior foot ulcers?
Sullivan K, Reiber GE. Is diabetic foot ulcer patients' footwear influenced by a history of prior foot ulcers? 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 clilnicians, patients and payers.
