Diabetes and diabetic foot

Diabetic foot ulcers are the most common chronic wounds in western and industrialized countries.

The triggering event usually corresponds to a minor trauma, often caused by the shoe itself. The absence of painful perception, due to peripheral diabetic neuropathy, together with vascular deficits, leads to ulceration. The same causes are responsible for the worsening of the lesion and its chronicity.
