Evolution of Wound Coverage

Nonoperative wound care and coverage is the frontline treatment in the invasive management of diabetic foot wounds. While optimization of blood glucose control and other comorbidities is paramount, achieving healing of already present wounds is of paramount importance. Various modalities exist for covering already present wounds. Negative pressure wound therapy, wet-to-dry dressing, antibiotic-laden dressing, contact casting, and xenograft soft tissue coverings all offer various modalities by which providers can potentially achieve coverage of these morbid wounds in an attempt to avoid amputation or other more invasive procedures.
