Cost and mortality data of a regional limb salvage and hyperbaric medicine program for Wagner Grade 3 or 4 diabetic foot ulcers

We obtained costs and mortality data in two retrospec tive cohorts totaling 159 patients who have diabetes mellitus and onset of a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). Data were collected from 2005 to 2013, with a follow-up period through September 30, 2014. A total of 106 patients entered an evidence-based limb salvage protocol (LSP) for Wagner Grade …

Cost-effectiveness and budget impact of adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy for diabetic foot ulcers

Background: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been proposed as an adjunct tostandard methods of care for diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). Its use may decrease the risk ofinfection and lower extremity amputations (LEAs). As part of a Canadian assessment, weestimated the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of HBOT in this application.Methods: We developed a decision model comparing …

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers: A Health Technology Assessment

ABSTRACTBackgroundAbout 15% to 25% of people with diabetes will develop a foot ulcer. These wounds are often resistant to healing; therefore, people with diabetes experience lower limb amputation at about 20 times the rate of people without diabetes. If an ulcer does not heal with standard wound care, other therapeutic interventions are offered, one of …
