Diabetic foot ulcers: Impact on health status
Carter J, del-Aguila M, Pugh J, Fotio G, Reiber GE. Diabetic foot ulcers: Impact on health status. Diabetes. 1997 Oct 15; S1(46):1252.
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.
