Special Issue Introduction:

Wound care management fail to optimize due to a lack of efficient referral system, well-integrated multidisciplinary team, and specialized wound care unit. Thus, establishing a patient-centered wound care unit can ensure regular follow up, on-site wound assessment, avoid delay in early debridement, and continual care with education and prevention. The well-established clinical pathway conjoined with the adjuvant advanced technology, such as negative pressure wound therapy, hyper-bariatric oxygenation, and modern wound dressings, may offer the chance for intractable difficult wound or limb salvage.

    Aim: Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) has been discussed in several studies, but without a focus on peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which is a common comorbidity. This study aims to investigate the feasibility of NPWT in the treatment of DFU with PAD in regards to limb salvage and the clinical course. Methods: The authors retrospectively collected patients...
