Among the different methods to achieve ulcer healing, the use of platelet-rich plasma, which is rich in multiple growth factors and cytokines and may have similarities to the natural wound healing process, is gaining in popularity. A systematic review with meta-analyses was performed to evaluate the safety and clinical effectiveness of platelet-rich plasma for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers compared to standard treatment or any other alternative therapy.

Association between thermal threshold abnormalities and peripheral artery disease in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(51):e13803

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Internal Medicine, Taichung Veterans General Hospital.

Both diabetic peripheral neuropathy and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) cause foot ulcers and often result in non-traumatic amputations in patients with type 2 diabetes. This study aimed to evaluate the association between clinical variables, PAD, and subclinical diabetic small fiber peripheral neuropathy detected by abnormal thermal thresholds of the lower extremities in patients with type 2 diabetes.We investigated 725 consecutive patients with type 2 diabetes (male/female: 372/353; mean age, 67 ± 11 years) who did not have apparent cardiovascular disease (including coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, and stroke) and who underwent the quantitative sensory test for thermal (warm and cold) thresholds of the lower limbs and ankle-brachial index (ABI)/toe-brachial index (TBI) examinations in 2015.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Lebanese American University Medical Center, Rizk Hospital, Lebanese American University, School of Medicine, Beirut, Lebanon (KY, MN, CA).

Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are usually treated with conservative management based on debridement, topical agents, and nonsurgical off-loading; however, the recurrence rate following such standard care is reported to be high. In the case of recalcitrant or recurrent ulcers, a surgical off-loading technique such as the metatarsal osteotomy (MO) is indicated. Thus, the aim of this study is to conduct a meta-analysis evaluating the efficacy of MO in treating DFUs. Read More
