Schaper NC et al. – This progress report is based on these two documents and earlier consensus texts of the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWDGF) on the diagnosis and management of diabetic foot ulcers. Its aim is to give the clinician clear guidance on when and how to diagnose peripheral arterial disease in patients with diabetes and a foot ulcer and when and which treatment modalities should be considered, taking both risks and benefits into account.
