Diabetic foot (DF) are wounds that appear on the feet in diabetic patients and do not heal for a long time. It is important to investigate the presence of an obstruction in the leg veins in patients with DF. DF is a common and serious complication of diabetes. It is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients. The principles of essential surgical and non-surgical wound care are indispensable factors in the healing of these wounds. The patient, who underwent surgical debridement, was continued with negative-pressure wound therapy and silver foam dressing for wound healing.
