As Diabetic foot ulcer has become a major universal medical challenge – it has become imperative to deeply study the pathogenesis and biological characteristics of the diabetic foot, explore new treatment strategies and promote their application. Under these urgent circumstances, PODOCON 2022 assumes significant place in the knowledge space of medical professionals.
Diabetic foot is the most neglected complication with repeated ulcerations, infection that often negates traditional methods of treatment. Medical professionals around the world are constantly improving treatment regime because with the current treatment for nonhealing diabetic foot ulcers, a significant number of patients require foot amputation.
Diabetes causes dysfunction of multiple organs and diabetic foot presents a long-term complex interaction of neuropathic, macrovascular, and microvascular diseases in an abnormal metabolic context, accompanied by a decline in healing ability.
Chronic ulcers are difficult to cure, prone to recurrence, and have a high rate of amputation, leading to impaired quality of life patients; source of psychological burden and economic pressure on their families and the health care system in general. Therefore, there is a need for new approaches to accelerate diabetic wound healing.
