Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a major health problem and remains a major cause of amputation across the world. Critical assessment of the relationship between peripheral artery disease, revascularization, and healing of DFU was performed. A new therapy has been claimed to prevent major amputations in advanced DFU. The intralesional injection of recombinant human epidermal growth factor (EGF) should often lead to satisfactory outcomes. The purpose of our study was to demonstrate the advantage of the combination of revascularization and EGF local infiltration in accelerating healing of DFU.

Abstract The species Kalanchoe laciniata (L.) DC. and Bryophyllum pinnatum (Lam) Pers. are native from Brazil and Madagascar, respectively. Both belonging to the Crassulaceae family and being widely used by population as a natural anti-inflammatory agent. These species have similar leaf morphology and for this reason, they are known by the same popular name as “ sai ão ” or “ coirama ” . Several studies have been published involving different parts and preparations of these species. Therefore, this review aims to provide an update overview about the traditional uses, chemical constitution, ph...
ConclusionNeedle flexor tenotomies are a relatively safe and effective treatment compared to tenotomies done by scalpel, both as treatment for ulcers and to prevent formation of new ulcers associated with hammer, mallet and claw toe deformities. As a side note, transfer complications are avoidable if all toes on one or both feet are tenotomized in one procedure.
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a highly prevalent, yet underdiagnosed, condition . Although frequently asymptomatic, it is a leading cause of leg pain, claudication, ulceration, gangrene, and even amputation. On the other hand, patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are more likely to develop PAD than do the non-diabetic subjects. Furthermore, they are affected by more severe and extensive form of the disease that tends to involve more distal arteries, progress more quickly, and also it is more likely to lead to ischemic ulceration and amputation .

Thus, targeting basil varieties for developing herbal medicines against non-communicable chronic diseases (NCDs) such as type 2 diabetes has significant merit. The aim of this study was to screen Asian basil varieties with therapeutic potential for type 2 diabetes targeting relevant phenolic bioactive-linked antioxidant, an...
In this study, there was a high prevalence of the EMRSA-15 clone presenting multiple resistances in diabetic foot ulcers making these infections complicated to treat leading to a higher morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients.
