Study suggests tenotomies to improve healing of diabetic foot ulcers
We know that diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) occur with a lifetime risk of 19-34% in patients with diabetes and can be considered a common complication of diabetes. Some end up with hammertoes. Can tenotomies improve the healing of DFUs associated with hammertoes? This is exactly what Orthopedic Surgeon Jonas Askoe Andersen has been investigating in a newly published controlled randomized trial. Let him present the results in this MEDtalk.
