Diabetic foot is a severe complication of diabetes that occurs as a result of poor glycemic control, being associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Mortality associated with this disease is estimated at 5% in the first 12 months, and about 42% in the next 5 years. On average, it affects about 15% of people with diabetes during their lifetime, including as possible manifestations neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, and subsequent ulceration which, if treated incorrectly, can lead to amputation.
This paper presents a retrospective and descriptive study of patients diagnosed and treated for diabetic foot ulcers in the Proctoven Clinic. The study includes a group of 50 cases diagnosed with diabetic foot over a period of 5 years, from 01.01.2017 to 31.12.2021. In this study, the effectiveness of the modern treatment methods most frequently used in the surgical treatment of the diabetic foot is analyzed based on several parameters.
