Electromagnetic simulation of non-invasive approach for the diagnosis of diabetic foot ulcers

This study, though a simulation in nature, shows promise for being able to accurately diagnose the peripheral vasculature using electromagnetic parameters. This feasibility study proved successful for possible future implementation using MEMS/NEMS device systems to be designed to detect EM parameters to serve as a diagnostic tool for the early detection of peripheral vascular disease, and ultimately, diabetic foot ulcers.

Authors: Jakimovski D, Topolski M, Genovese AV, Weinstock-Guttman B, Zivadinov R Abstract INTRODUCTION: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory, demyelinating, and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system. Over the last two decades, more favorable MS long-term outcomes have contributed towards increase in prevalence of the aged MS population. Emergence of age-associated pathology, such as cardiovascular diseases, may interact with the MS pathophysiology and further contribute to disease progression. Areas covered: This review summarizes the cardiovascular involvement in MS pathology, its disea...

Private insurance pays hospitals much more than the federal government does for patient care. If Medicare for all means Medicare rates, expect an industry backlash.

ConclusionsThe prevalence of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes was significantly lower in indigenous than in nonindigenous participants. Also, prevalence of type 2 diabetes was lower those living in rural areas. Health benefits of a traditional lifestyle may partially account for these differences.

AbstractThe combination of an aging population and an increasing prevalence of diseases associated with impaired-wound healing, including obesity, peripheral vascular disease and diabetes, is likely to result in a dramatic increase in the incidence and prevalence of chronic skin wounds. Indeed, systemic reviews are now not only trying to establish both the prevalence and the often under-estimated socio-economic costs of chronic skin wounds, but most importantly are addressing the impact  that chronic wounds have on quality of life. Given the clear need for novel approaches to the management of chronic skin ulceration,...

We examined the prevalence of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DIM), neuropathic foot ulceration (FU) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD), and potential risk factors for these complications among patients attending primary care diabetes clinics in Bahrain. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We studied 1477 diabetic patients (Type 2 diabetes 93%); to, including 635 men and 842 women, with ages ranging from 18-75 years in a cross-sectional study. The main predictor variables were demographic and clinical data, including assessment of foot and blood parameters. RESULTS: Mean age of the patients and duration of diabetes were 57....

This study reports a detailed complication analysis and provides a strategy that may help detect patients at risk for a complicated postoperative course. Methods: The study comprised 43 feet in 37 patients with severe non-plantigrade or unstable Charcot deformity, Eichenholtz stages II/III (Sanders and Frykberg types II-V), who underwent reconstructive arthrodesis of the mid- and/or hindfoot. Patients were retrospectively enrolled 4.5 years postoperatively (range 1.8–11.2 years). All patients showed at least two out of five positive Pinzur high-risk criteria (immuno-compromising illnesses, large bone deformity, longs...
