Abstract

Appropriate care of feet of patients with diabetes requires a clear, descriptive classification system that may be used to direct appropriate therapy and possibly predict outcome. Ideally, this system would be used by all participants in a multidisciplinary limb-salvage team. The . authors report on a logical, treatment-oriented system that may improve communication, leading to a less complex, more predictable treatment course and, ultimately, an improved result.
