Brief Summary:
To evaluate the benefit of multidisciplinary specific follow-up of patients with a healed diabetic foot ulcer at the rate of two annual consultation on wound recurrence.

Condition or disease
Diabetic Foot

Detailed Description:

Diabetic foot ulcer is a major world health problem with a very high recurrence rate, 50% at two years.

The main causes of diabetic foot ulcer recurrence are inadequate footwear, lack of podology care and lack of self-care. International recommendations call for regular podological monitoring to prevent recurrence of diabetic foot ulcer.

The "remission foot" consultation assesses recommended items and is offered to any healed patient at the rate of two annual visit.

A retrospective study on multidisciplinary specific follow-up may show a real efficacity on recurrence rate.
