OBJECTIVE To assess the ability of vibration perception threshold (VPT) to predict the development of diabetic foot ulceration. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A prospective follow-up study of consecutive patients with vibration perception measured by biothesiometry from April 1988 to March 1989. Patients were stratified in various risk groups. RESULTS Patients with a VPT < 15 V had a cumulative incidence of foot ulceration of 2.9% compared with 19.8% in patients with a VPT > 25 V, odds ratio… CONTINUE READING
