Four major complications are participating in tissue damage in diabetic foot syndrome – diabetic angiopathy, neuropathy, osteoarthropathy and inflammation. Low ankle-brachial pressure index (ABI) is a well-known indicator for ischemia of lower limbs, but in patients with diabetes mellitus is common also a high ABI (over 1.3) as reliable predictor of the presence of arterial calcification – medial calcinosis. Aim of the study is to determine the degree of ischemia using transcutaneous oximetry… CONTINUE READING
