The incidence of diabetes and its complications are on the rise with risk of lower extremity amputations being fifteen fold higher as compared to non-diabetics due to chronic diabetic foot ulcer. Diabetic ulcers are known to be resistant to conventional treatment and may herald severe complications if not treated wisely. A series of study has shown that application of PDGF to wound enhances the process of wound healing. In view of this a study on efficacy of rh-PDGF in chronic diabetic ulcers versus normal saline dressings was undertaken. Our study revealed that rh-PDGF therapy could act as an adjuvant to the conventional mode of treatment.
