Split thickness skin grafting in the diabetic foot
from Podiatry Management
The incidence of the diabetic foot has increased steadily over the past half century. According to the International Diabetes Foundation, there are more than 300 million people living with diabetes worldwide. The World Health Organization estimates that by 2030, more than 350 million people will be suffering from diabetes around the globe, 10 times the amount inflicted with HIV/AIDS. The U.S., with an estimated 25-35 million people with confirmed diabetes, has the third largest number of confirmed cases in the world. With these statistics, heightened consideration and effort need to be shown towards this growing global issue.
