A male diabetic patient after repeated amputations – on the left in the metatarsal area, on the right – on the second, fourth and fifth toe
On both extremities defects developed on the soles due to malum perforans pedis.
- Before applying Tecasorb it is necessary in some patients to remove hyperkeratosis from the adjacent area (as it decelerates healing) with sterile tools – scissors and forceps
- The adjacent skin is covered with a thin layer of indifferent ointment (in this case camphor ointment)
- Tecasorb dressing is applied
- Hydrophilic bandage is applied on top
- The same procedure is applied on the other leg
- Compression bandage is not applied in this type of defects!
The patient is recommended to wear diabetic shoes or made to measure orthopaedic footwear
