Diabetic Foot and Ozone Treatment

  The incidence of foot ulcers in patients diagnosed with diabetes is around 10%. Unfortunately, if conditions such as wound formation-non-healing, infection, circulatory disorder, nerve damage, ulceration and gangrene are not treated, even after minor traumas, the foot may need to be amputated.

In diabetic patients, circulatory disorders, low resistance, impaired oxygenation, nerve damage are quite common due to the deterioration of the vessel wall. Depending on this, non-healing or very slowly healing wounds are opened, especially on the feet. In patients who develop diabetic foot, circulatory disorder called peripheral artery disease should also be investigated and treated.

  Ozone therapy has been used successfully in the treatment of diabetic foot for a long time. Major autohemotherapy, which is mostly called ozone therapy from blood, and bagging method applied directly to the diabetic foot are essential. Ozone therapy basically activates the body's maintenance-repair mechanisms.

Since it improves circulation and increases oxygenation, it can provide healing and closure of the wound in a short time. In addition, since it has an antimicrobial effect, it is successfully applied in infected wounds together with antibiotics.

Before starting wound treatment with ozone, wound cleaning called debridement should be done if necessary. In addition, after the physical examination and examination of the patient, lumbar sympathetic blockades may be required together with ozone therapy. Since sympathetic blockades will increase the blood flow and oxygenation of the foot by causing enlargement called vasodilation in the veins of the leg, the wound will heal faster.
