Abstract

Appropriate management of the diabetic foot in a multidisciplinary setting requires knowledge of the risk factors leading to ulceration and limb loss. This article will review the most common risk factors for ulceration and present a validated, treatment-based method to appropriately communicate both the status of the diabetic wound and, more important, the patient's location on a spectrum of risk for amputation.
