Diabetic Foot Care: Case Studies in Clinical Management uses a 100% illustrated patient case study format to demonstrate the multidisciplinary care and clinical management of patients with feet and lower limb problems as a result of diabetes. Every case has colour illustrations highlighting both the initial presentation of the foot, right through to treatment and long term follow-up care. Of particular focus are the management problems, barriers to effective care, preventable mistakes, unnecessary delays in presentations, challenging situations, conflicts, dilemmas and solutions that podiatrists and diabetic specialists face.

Sections in the book include: Neuropathic and neuroischaemic foot, neuropathic ulcers, ischaemic ulcers, infections, gangrene, traumatic injuries, Charcot's osteoarthropathy, dermatological problems associated with diabetes, painful neuropathy, diabetic foot emergencies, angiology and foot surgery/amputation. With key points and summaries at the beginning and end of each section, this book is clear and easy to navigate, making it an ideal tool for diabetes specialists, diabetes nurses and podiatrists.
