    Abstract

    Offloading diabetic ulceration is a key component to the success in healing ulcers on the plantar aspect of the foot. New advances in offloading techniques allow for differing approaches in sometimes complex diabetic foot pathologies with associated ulceration. This case study looks at the use of flexible and rigid casting technique as part of the treatment in offloading plantar foot ulceration.
