This text, published just over a decade ago, remains as the only currently available compilation of thought and experience by 44 recognized global experts on the diabetic Charcot foot.
We are delighted to announce the publication of the 5th edition of our book, The Foot in Diabetes, published by John Wiley & Co Ltd, Chichester, UK.
In Frontiers in Diabetes, dedicated to the Diabetic Foot Syndrome, we collected 16 contributions from some of the most experienced and qualified scientists and clinicians, to give an up-to-date picture of the clinical scenario, the more recent acquisitions in the understanding of the mechanisms of the pathology, the current standards of therapy and the organizational tasks a modern approach to such a complex pathology deserves.
Although there have been many advances in the management of the diabetic foot, it nevertheless remains a major global public health problem. This book is devoted to saving the limbs and lives of people with diabetes and foot problems.
