Assessment of surgical management of diabetic foot ulcers

Author(s): Dr. Rajesh Kumar Singh and Dr. MA Reshamwala
Abstract:
Background: Diabetic foot ulcers are main cause of hospitalization in diabetic patients. The present study was conducted to assess surgical management of diabetic foot ulcers.
Materials & Methods: 78 patients of diabetic foot ulcers of both genders were enrolled in the study. The patients were evaluated and managed surgically according to Wagner's classification for diabetic foot.
Results: Out of 78, males were 48 and females were 30. Wagner classification grade 0 was seen in 4, grade 1 in 7, grade 2 in 12, grade 3 in 16, grade 4 in 19 and grade 5 in 20 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). The management done was incision and drainage in 5, transmetatarsal in 8, amputation was 40, debridement in 8, below knee amputation in 7, above knee amputation in 5 and Rye’s procedure in 5 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Diabetic foot ulcers are common complications seen in poorly controlled diabetics, hence glycaemic control in essential.
