The purpose of this study is to identify and quantify the neurovascular risk factors for foot problems in patients with diabetes mellitus, which is a major public health concern these days. The most feared factor among the diabetic patients is lower extremity amputation. The sequence of events leading to amputation is initiated by ulceration combined with sensation loss. To prevent complications and amputations it is necessary to detect the foot at risk of plantar ulceration at an early stage…

Assessment and management of foot disease in patients with diabetes.

TLDR
With this comprehensive approach, it is possible to achieve the goal of a 40 percent decrease in amputation rates among diabetic patients by the year 2000.

Lower-extremity amputation in diabetes. The independent effects of peripheral vascular disease, sensory neuropathy, and foot ulcers.

TLDR
This prospective study shows that peripheral sensory neuropathy, PVD, foot ulcers, former amputation, and treatment with insulin are independent risk factors for LEA in patients with diabetes.

Patient education for preventing diabetic foot ulceration.

TLDR
There is insufficient robust evidence that limited patient education alone is effective in achieving clinically relevant reductions in ulcer and amputation incidence, and future research should focus on evaluating the effect of more comprehensive and/or intensive prevention strategies which may also include patient education (complex interventions.

Classification of diabetic foot wounds.

Treatment-based classification system for assessment and care of diabetic feet.

TLDR
A logical, treatment-oriented system that may improve communication, leading to a less complex, more predictable treatment course and, ultimately, an improved result is reported.

Geodesic Active Contours

TLDR
A novel scheme for the detection of object boundaries based on active contours evolving in time according to intrinsic geometric measures of the image, allowing stable boundary detection when their gradients suffer from large variations, including gaps.
