Objective: We aim to establish the efficiency of early closed-toe surgery on toe ulcers with suspected osteomyelitis after revascularization for persistent leg-threatening ischemia. Early closed toe amputation was able to heal faster wound healing in 90 days and a shorter median healing time than the conservative approach, according to the researchers. Despite numerous disadvantages, including wound infection and possible foot deformity, early closed toe amputation for toe ulcers with suspected osteomyelitis can be considered a safe option in terms of wound management.

Background: Stress hyperglycemia is a risk of death in diabetic patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Methods and Results: 742 non-diabetic patients with STEMI and MVD were divided into two groups, the SHG group and the non-SHG group in this retrospective review. In the SHG group, the incidence of no-reflow syndrome and in-hospital mortality were both significantly higher than those in the non-SHG group. SHG is associated with increased SF-NR and short-term adverse events in non-diabetic patients with STEMI and MVD, and short-term adverse events, and CR during PPCI raises the risk of NR.
