Debridement of diabetic foot ulcers
from Nursing Times
Fifteen per cent of people with diabetes are affected by foot ulceration at some time. Debridement is an intervention intended to speed up ulcer healing. It involves the removal of devitalised, contaminated or foreign material from the wound, until surrounding healthy tissue is exposed. Effective management of the diabetic foot is generally regarded as requiring a multidisciplinary input and good communication between primary and secondary care providers. However, the most effective method of debridement is still unclear.
