Abstract

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:


It has been estimated that one in five of all diabetic patient admissions to the hospital are for limb lesions. A significant number of such patients will require long-term hospital treatment and amputations.


In diabetes, effective treatment of ulceration is seen as key to the reduction in the number of amputations.


METHODS:


100 casesof  all grades of diabetic ulcer admitted in Department of General Surgery of MVJMC & RH in surgical wards.


Cases will be allocated randomly into test group and control group.


RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS:


This comparative study shows a significant reduction in the Duration of Healing and Healing Rates in the patients undergoing Split Thickness Skin Grating. Duration of Healing was 50% lesser in the Test Case Group undergoing Split Thickness Skin Grafting as compared to the Control Group Undergoing Traditional Dressings.
