This book presents essential information on biomechanical features of the diabetic foot, which could help to minimize the risk of future diabetic foot problems. India has recently been classified as the ‘diabetic capital’ of the world. Type 2 diabetes mellitus has become a serious concern for Indian society, where the prevalence rate is increasing exponentially. Similarly, the comorbidities and foot complications of type 2 diabetes mellitus are worsening day by day. Of all complications, diabetes peripheral neuropathy is the most common, and leads to foot deformities, pain, altered sensation, loss of foot arch, etc. The ultimate fate can even be gangrene and amputation. Accordingly, foot complications of diabetes represent a pressing medical issue. Sharing insights into diabetic foot syndrome, its causative factors, prevention and management, this book offers a valuable resource for medical and paramedical students, researchers, podiatrists, surgeons, and physicians alike.

Of all lower extremity amputations, 40–70% are related to diabetes. In most studies, the incidence of lower leg amputation is estimated to be 5–25/100,000 inhabitants/year: among people with diabetes the number is 6–8/1,000. Lower extremity amputations are usually preceded by a foot ulcer in people with diabetes. The most important factors related to the development of these ulcers are peripheral neuropathy, foot deformities, minor foot trauma, and peripheral vascular disease. The spectrum of foot lesions varies in different regions of the world due to differences in socioeconomic conditions, standards of foot care and quality of footwear. This clinical update is designed to address this condition in a comprehensive way to help the reader take important questions while managing the patient with supportive typical clinical scenarios, with which all readers will be able to identify. Thus it provides an excellent opportunity to widen one’s perspective in this area.

This book reviews the dermatological manifestations of Diabetes Mellitus, including a broad spectrum of conditions since the dysfunction of the cutaneous barrier, going through cutaneous infections in diabetics, dermatoses associated to Diabetes and manifestations related to Diabetes treatment. Moreover, the book comprises the latest concepts regarding epidemiology, classification, diagnosis and treatment of Diabetes Mellitus, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, including useful tools for the management of patients with diabetes. It explains why skin conditions have such a great impact on the quality of life of these patients, particularly the subset of patients with diabetic foot syndrome. Dermatology and Diabetes discusses all these dermatologic conditions and provides a roundup of the current guidelines in diabetic patients. Taking into account the critical differential diagnostic information and therapeutic options, the book is an important reference for clinical dermatologist and all health care professionals involved.

APPLICATION OF COLLAGEN MATERIAL IN TREATMENT OF DIABETIC FOOT ULCERS (multicenter study results) BackgroundDespite the use of different treatment options, the average healing time of ulcers in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) is long. In the case of ulcers localization on the fingers and on the front part of the foot healing time is about 150 days, with the localization in the middle part of the foot is about 190 days, in the heel region is about 235-240 days. The foregoing demonstrates the need for refinement of existing treatment protocols and development of new efficient materials for local treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). AimTo assess the effectiveness of the collagen material (Collost/Salvecoll) application in patients with DFU.MethodThe multicenter randomized prospective study in patients with DFU was conducted. 71 patients with diabetic foot syndrome of varying severity were included, patients aged 30-80 years (mean age 58.96u00b18.11 years; median 60 years) including 34 (47.9%) women and 37 (52.1%). The study was conducting on the bases of 5 clinical centers in Moscow, Moscow Region St.-Petersburg, Kazan. Patients were randomized into two homogeneous groups. The level of tissue defects: 50 patients (70.4%) - Wagner II, 21 patients (29.6%) - Wagner III. The duration of ulcer ranged from 6 weeks to 2 years, the average duration was 8.4u00b19.1 months (Me: 6 months). Patients of comparison group received standard therapy, 36 patients (main group) additionally applied the collagen material Collost / Salvecoll.ResultsApplication of the collagen biomaterial Collost/Salvecoll led to more rapid and effective healing of the ulcer; the wound area decreased mainly due to a more rapid regression of wound area; the treatment success increased by 1.7 times. The significant improvement result of the wound healing in the main group was the most pronounced and ahead of the comparison group dynamics of the wound area regression. In the Collagen group the wound area regressed from 13.5 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 1st visit to 10.6 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 2nd visit (by 1.27 times), to 6.3 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 3rd visit (by 2.14 times) and to 2.1 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 4th visit (by 6.43 times). In the comparison group the wound area regressed from 12.6 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 1st visit to 12.5 cmu00b2 (Me) on the 2nd visit (by 1.01 times), and 10.0 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 3rd visit (by 1.26 times) and up to 7.0 cmu00b2 (Me) at the 4th visit (by 1.80 times). A statistically significant difference between the groups was registered on the 4th visit, in which wound area in the comparison group was by 3.33 times more than in Collagen group (p

This book discusses essential aspects of diabetic foot ulcers, including evidence-based information on its pathogenesis and pathophysiology, as well as the molecular mechanisms and biomechanics of the diabetic foot. It also highlights the need for a multidisciplinary team to be involved in the management of diabetic patients with foot ulcers, and describes available and future tools for evaluating patients who are at risk. Exploring the main current therapies as well as the latest developments, future directions and potential new treatments, such as growth factors, stem cell therapy, alternative medicine and nanotechnology, the book is a valuable resource for clinicians and medical graduates but will also appeal to researchers working in the field.
