OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of rt-PA intravenous thrombolytic treatment for patients with diabetic foot (DF) and acute ischemic stroke. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 76 patients admitted between June 2012 to December 2015 presenting with acute ischemic stroke and Grade 0-1 DF a (Wagner classification). The treatment group consisted of 44 patients who received rt-PA intravenous thrombolytic treatment, while 32 cases in the control group did not...

BACKGROUND: Despite its efficacy in healing neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), total contact cast (TCC) is often underused because of technical limitations and poor patient acceptance. We compared TCC to irremovable and removable commercially available walking boots for DFU offloading. METHODS: We prospectively studied 60 patients with DFUs, randomly assigned to 3 different offloading modalities: TCC (group A), walking boot rendered irremovable (i-RWD; group B), and removable walking boot (RWD; group C)...

BACKGROUND: Homeless people live in poverty, with limited access to public health services. They are likely to experience chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes mellitus; however, they do not always receive the necessary services to prevent complications. This study was designed to determine the effectiveness of a volunteer health service outreach to reduce disparity in diabetic foot care for homeless people. METHODS: The research was conducted on 21 patients with diabetic ulcers of 930 homeless people visited between 2008 and 2013...

OBJECTIVES: The "tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) foot-mapping" method was developed using a non-invasive near-infrared tissue oximeter monitor to classify the foot regions as ischemic and non-ischemic areas. The purpose of this study was to evaluate StO2 foot-mapping as a reliable method to detect ischemic areas in the feet of patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI), and to compare the results with assessments from the angiosome model. METHODS: The foot areas of 20 CLI patients and 20 healthy controls were classified into four regions: (1) 0 ≤ StO2 < 30%, (2) 30 ≤ StO2 < 50%, (3) 50 ≤ StO2 < 70%, and (4) 70 ≤ StO2 ≤ 100% to perform StO2 foot-mapping...
