Abstract:   (5206 Views)
Background: Diabetes mellitus is a common chronic disorder with multiple disabling long- and shorter-term complications, the majority of which can be controlled if not prevented. The management of diabetic patients is a major drain on both health budgets and time.
Methods: We reviewed the records of 101 patients with diabetic foot ulcer, who had received treatment at either Doctor Shariati or Imam Khomeini hospital.
Results: Out of 101 patients (56.4% male and 43.6% female) with diabetic foot ulcer, 34.7% had eventually undergone amputation.
Conclusion: Our findings highlight the need for control and prevention programmes aimed at reducing the risk factors for and complications of diabetic foot ulcer.
