Abstract

In diabetic foot syndrome, the infection of diabetic ulceration is the critical parameter of classification, the most frequent reason of hospitalization and the main cause of amputations. Debridement and release of pressure are the critical steps of initial therapy of neuropathic ulceration showing no clinical signs of infection. Infection of neuroischemic foot is much more serious condition: in case of positive microbiological finding, antibiotic therapy is recommended even without any clinical signs of infection. Healing can be accelerated by ozone and Dermacyn therapy. Prevention of ulceration should be based on using appropriate shoes (with respect to risk factors) and PC plantography.
