Diabetic foot

The treatment of ulceration or infection that can appear on the feet of patients with diabetes starts with the prevention and good control of glycemia. In cases of arterial insufficiency, it should be corrected by the vascular surgeon. If ulcers still persist in the feet, there is the possibility of covering them with microsurgery. Regardless of the state of the great arteries of the foot, paradoxically the flow in the small arteries is maintained in patients with diabetic foot. Thanks to the supermicrosurgery, tissue can be transferred from another part of the body and connected to these small arteries and veins of the foot, in this way to take well vascularized tissue that helps to fight the infection and improve the healing. With this confrontation you can avoid amputations or delay your need.
