This pocket guide describes the management of foot problems associated with diabetes, such as ulcers, the infected foot, the necrotic foot, and the unsalvageable foot. It is meant to aid in quick clinical decisions by offering a method of classifying and staging the diabetic foot by all members of a multidisciplinary team. This edition includes the use of single-photon emission computer tomography and computed tomography (SPECT/CT) in the diagnosis of Charcot foot, the use of gray-scale ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of infection, and the use of CT angiography and magnetic resonance angiography in delineating disease of the peripheral arterial system. It also incorporates advances in management, such as reconstruction of the unstable Charcot hindfoot by internal stabilization, revascularization of the ischemic foot by very distal angioplasty and bypasses to the plantar arteries and hybrid techniques, wound healing, and the increased use of intravenous antibiotic therapy in patients’ homes using peripherally inserted central catheter lines.
