Studies have shown that diabetic feet occur in 15%~25% diabetics, and about half of them will have wound infection. There are many factors that lead to poor prognosis of diabetic foot, such as peripheral vascular disease, area and depth of foot ulcer, peripheral neuropathy and infection. Therefore, the pathogenesis of diabetic foot is complex, and many factors are one of the main causes leading to amputation. At the same time, diabetic foot ulcers can significantly increase the health risk of diabetic patients; increase the incidence of cardiovascular accidents and all-cause mortality. Therefore, the early diagnosis and treatment
of diabetic foot is an important means to improve the quality of life and the survival time of diabetic patients. Although the treatment of diabetic foot has achieved remarkable results, because of its complex mechanism, the existing treatment methods are still difficult to meet the clinical needs, and new therapies need to be further explored. In our hospital from April 2014 to August 2016 a total of 67 cases of diabetic patients as the research object, which will
be 36 cases of diabetic foot were classified as group DF, 31 cases of non-diabetic foot patients were classified as non DF group, compare two groups of patients with lower limb artery disease, 1 years of follow-up will be based on whether the amputation patients divided into amputation group and non-amputation group, and the general situation and related factors of two groups of patients were statistically analyzed.
