Toe Pressure in Predicting Diabetic Foot Ulcer Healing: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Toe Pressure in Predicting Diabetic Foot Ulcer Healing: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Foot ulceration is the most frequently recognized lower extremity complication in diabetic patients. Predicting wound healing is an essential step in the management of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), as it is estimated that early detection and appropriate treatments may prevent up to 85% of amputations. Toe systolic blood pressure (TBP) is a quick and portable bedside assessment and is less affected by medial sclerosis of arteries present in the diabetic population compared to other measurements like ankle-brachial index. This systematic review seeks to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of toe pressure in prediction of DFU wound healing. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of vascular surgery Pubmed
