Trophic ulcers have emerged as one of the major complications following diabetes mellitus (DM) and Hansen’s diseases (HD). In this case series, the study attempted total contact plaster boot using a readily available plaster of Paris to treat trophic ulcer for 10 subjects. A total of five subjects with DM and five subjects with HD were included based on the study criteria. Pre and post test measure of wound measurement size following total contact plaster boot were taken as an outcome measure…

Off-loading the diabetic foot wound: a randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
The TCC seems to heal a higher proportion of wounds in a shorter amount of time than two other widely used off-loading modalities, the RCW and the half-shoe.
Effectiveness of Removable Walker Cast Versus Nonremovable Fiberglass Off-Bearing Cast in the Healing of Diabetic Plantar Foot Ulcer
TLDR
The Stabil-D cast walker, although removable, was equivalent in efficacy to the TCC in terms of ulcer size reduction and total healing rate and may help increase the use of off-loading devices in the management of plantar neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers.
Foot ulcers in the diabetic patient, prevention and treatment
TLDR
It is imperative to remember the fundamental basics in the healing of diabetic foot ulcers: adequate perfusion, debridement, infection control, and pressure mitigation.
Diabetic foot ulcers: pathogenesis and management.
TLDR
Multidisciplinary management programs that focus on prevention, education, regular foot examinations, aggressive intervention, and optimal use of therapeutic footwear have demonstrated significant reductions in the incidence of lower-extremity amputations.
EFFECT OF CRYOTHERAPY ON PAIN AND WOUND HEALING IN THE FORM OF STANDARDISED ICE MASSAGE AROUND THE SURFACE OF WOUNDS IN DIABETIC PATIENTS: A RANDOMIZED CONTROL TRAIL
TLDR
Cryotherapy was found not only to be the most effective, cheap and safest way of reducing pain and inflammation without causing hindrance to the wound healing but also improves wound healing.
Comparison of the clinical effectiveness of different off‐loading devices for the treatment of neuropathic foot ulcers in patients with diabetes: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
Non‐removable off-loading devices regardless of type, are more likely to result in ulcer healing than removable off‐loading devices, presumably because patient compliance with off‐loaded devices is facilitated.
Foot ulcer risk is lower in South-Asian and african-Caribbean compared with European diabetic patients in the U.K.: the North-West diabetes foot care study.
TLDR
Lower neuropathy is the main contributor to the reduced African-Caribbean ulcer rate, particularly in men, and the reasons for these ethnic differences warrant further investigation.
Burn wound healing property of Cocos nucifera: An appraisal
TLDR
There was significant improvement in burn wound contraction in the group treated with the combination of Cocos nucifera and silver sulphadiazine and the period of epithelialization also decreased significantly in groups III and IV.
Trends in prevalence of diabetes in Asian countries.
TLDR
The rising trend in prevalence of diabetes in Asia, its causative factors and the urgent need to implement national strategies for primary prevention of type 2 diabetes are highlighted.
