DMRR special issue: The diabetic foot in 2015

In 2015, it can be said that the diabetic foot is no longer the Cinderella of diabetic complications.Thirty years ago there was little evidence-based research taking place on the diabetic foot, and there were no international meetings addressing this topic.

Seven systematic reviews are published as part of the IWGDF Guidance, with over 100 pages of evidence tables; there’s not much more of an overview to wish for. These systematic reviews are evidence underlying the IWGDF Guidance, but for those who like it short and simple, Markakis, Bowling and Boulton have written a nice overview of the status of the diabetic foot in 2015.
