Abstract

Diabetes can result in a range of complications, and is responsible for many lower limb amputations. This case report discusses a diabetic patient with a complex, non-healing wound following amputation of the foot. A number of adjunctive therapies were used to promote healing, and led to the complete healing of the wound.
