Contact with a podiatrist reduces risk for amputation: results of a meta analysis

In this superb meta analysis by Blanchette and coworkers in Journal of Foot and Ankle Research (JFAR) it is clear that teamwork works in studies, worldwide. What also may be the case is that teams including podiatry may yield enhanced benefits– like possibly fewer high level amputation (foot/leg) in favor of the same or slightly more low-level (toe/midfoot) amputations.

Reduction in a) all lower extremity amputation and b) high level amputation in teams with podiatry
