In "The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management, Second Edition", a distinguished panel of clinicians - many practicing at the famous Joslin-Beth Israel Deaconess Foot Center - illuminate the successful new multidisciplinary approach now clearly required for the successful treatment of this medical problem. Drawing on the experiences of diabetologists, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, infectious disease specialists, orthotists, plastic and orthopaedic surgeons, the book clearly describes established techniques known to be effective. The book provides recent information regarding the role of the increased inflammatory state of diabetes and the failure to heal the foot ulcer. In addition, emphasis has been given to the patient's education, wound bed preparation, and the history and pathophysiology of wound healing.
