La microbiologia del pie diabetico es compleja y es controvertido el cultivo con hisopo; se considera el cultivo de biopsia de tejido como estandar. Objetivo: Determinar la utilidad diagnostica del cultivo de lesiones de pie diabetico con hisopo. Metodos: Estudio comparativo de utilidad diagnostica. Las lesiones se clasificaron con la escala de la Universidad de Texas. Se realizo cultivo por biopsia y tallado con hisopo de las lesiones. Se realizo identificacion bacteriana por metodos bioquimico...

Diabet. Med. 28, 175–178 (2011) Abstract Aims To investigate the impact of wound fluid lactate concentration on diagnosing soft-tissue infection in diabetic foot ulcers. Methods Lactate concentration in wound fluid obtained from diabetic foot ulcers was determined using a lactate analyser and compared with clinical examination findings. Results Overall median wound fluid lactate concentration was 21.03 mm (5.58–80.40 mm). Wound lactate levels were significantly higher in infected compared with n...

Even though we have reached the 21st century, diabetic foot continues to be a major cause of morbidity and of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations worldwide1,2. Especially in India, the diabetic foot represents a considerable health problem, aggravated by the high frequency of infection and the ever-rising prevalence of diabetes2,3. Three major pathologies, neuropathy, ischaemia and infection, form a vicious cycle, leading to the notorious diabetic foot lesions, which may aggravate with unf...

Valid and reproducible sampling techniques as well as processing protocols are required for the assessment of biomarkers and mediators contained in wound exudate. Moreover, the ideal technique should be easy to use even in daily clinical routine. This is challenging since wound fluid represents an inhomogeneous mixture of different exogenous and endogenous sources. Analyzing wound fluid, however, may facilitate clinical decision making. Many techniques for obtaining wound fluid have been describ...

Objective. Methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) with the staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) type IV allele is most commonly associated with community‐acquired MRSA (CA‐MRSA) infection; however, such organisms have also been identified in the healthcare setting. The objective of the present study was to characterize the epidemiology of and clinical outcomes associated with SCCmec‐IV MRSA infection acquired in the healthcare setting, compared with infection caused by MRS...

Aims/hypothesis The randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Diabetic Patients with Chronic Foot Ulcers (HODFU) study showed beneficial effect of HBOT. As this treatment is expensive and time-consuming, being able to select patients for therapy would be very useful. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether circulatory variables could help in predicting outcome of HBOT.

The burden of diabetic foot complications, in terms of both physical and socioeconomical constraints, poses a heavy challenge both to the patient and the physician, especially in developing countries, where the number of people living with diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate compared with the developed world. In developing countries like India, there are specific causes and risk factors that increase the burden of diabetic foot infections (DFIs), for example, sociocultural risk factors su...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is a short-term, high-dose oxygen inhalation and diffusion therapy, delivered systemically through airways and blood under high pressure using hyperbaric chambers. HBO stimulates angiogenesis, reduces edema, augments granulation tissue formation by enhancing fibroblasts, and improves leukocyte function by elevating the partial pressure of oxygen in tissue. The number of clinical trials evaluating the effect of HBO on the healing of diabetic foot ulcers is increasi...

Thermography is being increasingly appreciated as a further modality contributing to the early detection of incipient tissue damage predisposing to diabetic foot ulceration in selected high-risk patients. Among currently available modalities, liquid crystal thermography and infrared thermography have been most widely used. The former is effective, but its main limitation is low sensitivity. The latter permits non-contact measurements at different angles of the foot, independent of the quality of...

Abstract We aimed to investigate the predictors for limb loss among patients with diabetes who have complicated skin/soft-tissue infections. In this observational study, consecutive patients with diabetic foot infection (DFI) from 17 centres in Turkey, between May 2011 and May 2013 were included. The Turkish DFI Working Group performed the study. Predictors of limb loss were investigated by multivariate analysis. In total, 455 patients with DFI were included. Median age was 61 years, 68% were ma...

In patients with diabetes mellitus, osteomyelitis is a severe, difficult-to-treat form of foot infection. In the management of diabetic foot osteomyelitis, carriers for local delivery of antimicrobial agents have begun to be tried, in an attempt to provide high local antibiotic concentrations. Randomized clinical trials are now expected to clarify when this new approach should be used and how it can be integrated into the overall therapeutic strategy for diabetic foot osteomyelitis.

Cox regression model of survival at 1 year after the procedure found that age (HR 1.06 per year, 95% CI 1.04–1.07, P < 0.001), above-knee amputation (HR 1.36, 95% CI 1.01–1.83, P = 0.045) and ischemic heart disease (HR 1.68, 95% CI 1.26–2.24, P < 0.001) significantly increased one year mortality risk. conclusions: In this population-based study the incidence rate of non-traumatic amputations in diabetes patients between January 2002 and December 2009 decreased slightly. However, one year mortali...

A novel heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycan mimetic product for local application to promote wound healing (CACIPLIQ) has recently become available. It is a biophysical therapeutic product comprising a polysaccharide as an innovative biomaterial to accomplish mechanical tissue engineering and skin regeneration in the site of ulceration. We present a series of 12 patients with type 2 diabetes (4 men and 8 women; age 53-87 years; diabetes duration 8-25 years) having chronic resistance to therapy for...

Infections in feet of patients with diabetes mellitus is common, complex and costly. The aim of this study to investigate the isolated microorganisms in infected diabetic foot ulcers, and the impact of these infectious agents in limb loss in a tertiary medical center in Mexico City. We conducted a retrospective review in diabetic patients with infected foot ulcers from 1997 to 2014. Diabetic foot was defined according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the bacteriology of wound cultures and...
