Data collection : Retrospective study to collect data from patients records who were undergone amputations due to diabetic foot ulcers.
Also data will be prospectively collected by patients with diabetic foot ulcers and those patients will be followed up to observe the outcome.
Data will be collected by patients records as well as by interviewing patients.
General Objective: Assessing the risk factors for amputations related to diabetic foot ulcers.
1. Identifying the demographic factors associated with amputations related to diabetic foot ulcers.
2. Identifying the most common other risk factors associated with amputations related to diabetic foot ulcers.
3. Identifying the relation in-between common demographics factors and others common risk factors associated with amputations related to diabetic foot ulcers.
According to the findings of the research secondly hope to develop a tool for early detection of patients who are at risk for amputation related to diabetic foot ulcers. Also to rate the risk group in to few categories as high risk, low risk, moderately risk.
The study will be conducted at Queensland Australia
