Surgical approach to the diabetic foot

This fester'd joint cut off, the rest rests sound; This, let alone, will all the rest confound.

(Richard II, V, iii, William Shakespeare)

Diabetic gangrene is preventable in the overwhelming majority of cases . .. Hopefulness in the treatment of gangrene is possible. It comes first of all from the knowledge that the majority of the cases are needless and occur in those patients who have not been trained in the care of their feet or who have not followed training ... prompt treatment of the infection might have prevented the gangrene. (Elliott P. Joslin, MD, The menace of diabetic gangrene, N Engl J Med, 1934)
