Standard treatment approach including patient education, diabetes control, infection treatment, offloading and weekly debridement was started by our therapeutic team.
Findings: 56 patients with diabetic foot ulcer were evaluated in this study. The mean age of the patients was 59.46±12.66 years.62 percent of the patients achieved significant wound improvement (decreased wound area and control of infection) with the mean of 4.73 weeks of treatment (P<0.05).
