Palabras clave:

pie diabético, complicaciones


En Latinoamérica los estudios sobre prevalencia, incidencia, discapacidad, días laborales perdidos y costos por hospitalización a causa del pie diabético y sus complicaciones son escasos y diversos. En los estudios nacionales reportados por Argentina, Barbados, Brasil y Cuba, el rango de amputaciones del pie secundario a la Diabetes Mellitus (DM) oscila entre el 45 y el 75% de todas las causas de las amputaciones.

Las úlceras y amputaciones constituyen un gran problema de salud que genera un alto costo para el paciente, sus familiares y los sistemas de salud pública que se ven obligados a destinar en subsidios y atención médica recursos importantes que pudieran emplearse para programas sociales, de investigación o desarrollo tecnológico.
