Abstract :

Introduction:- Diabetic Foot Ulcer remains a major challenge to general surgeons irrespective of the advanced dressing techniques. This comparative study assesses the efficacy of the use of topical insulin in diabetic ulcer healing. Materials and methods:- Diabetic foot patients were segregated in 2 groups randomly. Cases were treated with topical insulin on ulcers while controls were treated with traditional wound dressing i.e. betadine. Ulcer contracture rate were calculated of both groups and statistically compared. Results:- Patients in Cases group had effective size reduction of diabetic ulcer by 38.87% compared to 21.37% in control group. That shows that Cases group treatment is more effective than control group treatment.Conclusions:- Topical insulin is an effective therapy in treating diabetic ulcer in the terms of reduction in size of the wound.
