Diabetes Wound Care
Impaired wound healing is a major clinical problem in patients with diabetes and is the leading cause of lower extremity amputations. Current diabetic therapies have a limited success rate in addressing the microvascularity present in diabetics. Poor healing of diabetic wounds is characterized by impaired angiogenesis and vasculogenesis.
