Strong work from our @UMICH colleagues. Bottom line: clean surgical bone margins reduces readmission and morbidity Abstract Background. Osteomyelitis is common in diabetic foot infections and medical management can lead to poor outcomes. Surgical management involves sending histopathologic and microbiologic specimens which guides future intervention. We examined the effect of obtainment of surgical margins in […]Read More Clean surgical margins yield fewer hospital readmissions in forefoot amputation @UMICH
Further compelling work to challenge the issue of glucose control and healing from colleagues from Hopkins. Abstract OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the association between hemoglobin A1c (A1C) and wound outcomes in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of an ongoing prospective, clinic-based study of patients with […]Read More Is long-term glucose control associated with healing diabetic foot ulcers? It may not be what you think.
Here is a manuscript from our team outlining a vision for how home-based smart devices can serve home-health in the future. Objective: The prevalent and long-neglected diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) and its related complications rank among the most debilitating and costly sequelae of diabetes. With the rise of the Internet of medical things (IoMT), along […]Read More Health Sensors, Smart Home Devices and the Internet of Medical Things: The State of the Art from SALSA @USC @KeckMedUSC @USC_Research

Strong work from Hicks and coworkers of John Hopkins. Abstract OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have reported correlation between the Wound, Ischemia, and foot Infection (WIfI) classification system and wound healing time on unadjusted analyses. However, in the only multivariable analysis to date, WIfI stage was not predictive of wound healing. Our aim was to examine the […]Read More WIFI classification independently predicts wound healing in diabetic foot ulcer @hopkinsmedicine @vascularsvs @apma @footindiabetes
Fascinating work from Institut Pasteur may shed new light on Staph biofilm production and resistance focuses on a new membrane protein, SpdC. This might further help explain why some Staph species are gentle and kind and others are such downright unpleasant guests.
