Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal ArticlePublication Status: ppublish. Mini-Review.
Around 15% of diabetic patients will suffer from a diabetic foot ulcus and subsequent amputation. Prevention and adapted treatment of a foot at risk is important and should be carried out by a multidisciplinary team. A foot at risk needs patient training and adapted footwear. Local wound care and control of vascular status follow. In case of deterioration of the local status surgical debridement and occasionally amputation have to be considered.
