Summary

Appropriate surgical technique and the application of NPWT could significantly improve limb salvage ratio in severe DFU complications. As the perfect pass technique in football, the perfect incision(s) should be NOT traverse but longitudinal with the proper length at the proper time in the corresponding foot compartment(s).

Early diagnosis and patient education should also be improved using wide population accessing IT technologies and wound-healing / diagnosing mobile applications.
