“Toe and Flow” Team Surgical Approach Lowers Diabetic Amputation Dramatically: Study

A new surgical approach has been developed to address the threat of arterial disease which now equals diabetes as a leading cause of foot and leg amputations. Podiatric surgeons and vascular surgeons from the Manchester Royal Infirmary have formed the Lower Limb Preservation Team, which has reduced major amputation rates by about 23 per cent in the city […]

Transcutaneous oxygen- not ABI or toe pressure- is a predictor for short-term survival in people with diabetic foot ulcers (study)

Compelling new data from Magnus Londahl and team. Yet more support for evaluating BOTH hemodynamics and tissue perfusion? AIMS: Ankle-brachial index (ABI) is the most commonly used test when diagnosing peripheral vascular disease and is considered a marker for cardiovascular risk. Transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2), a test associated with microvascular function, has in several studies […]
