The patient tolerated the procedure well. The next procedure is on ulcer #2. It is an excisional debridement. The location of the wound is the right medial extremity just proximal to ulcer #1. Its pre-debridement measurement is 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.2. Its post.

The use of a sharp instrument does not necessarily substantiate the performance of surgical excisional debridement. Unless the medical record shows that a surgical excisional debridement has been performed, debridements should be coded with either selective or non-selective codes (97022, 97036, 97597, 97598, or 97602) The original coder did not code the diabetic foot ulcer excision. Adding the excision would drive the case from a medical DRG (638) to a surgical DRG (623) Non-pressure ulcers of the leg (thigh, calf, ankle, heel, midfoot) except the toes are CC Removal of devitalized tissue from wound(s), non-selective debridement, without anesthesia (eg, wet-to-moist dressings, enzymatic, abrasion) including Diabetic foot ulcers go here!

  2. Debridement is the removal of infected, damaged, or dead tissue so a wound can heal properly. You may need more than one debridement. DISCHARGE INSTRUCTIONS: Medicines: Medicines can help decrease pain or prevent or treat an infection. Take your medicine as directed
  3. Debridement is a procedure for treating a wound in the skin. It involves thoroughly cleaning the wound and removing all hyperkeratotic (thickened skin or callus), infected, and nonviable (necrotic or dead) tissue, foreign debris, and residual material from dressings. Debridement can be accomplished either surgically or through alternate methods such as use of special dressings and gels
  4. Progression of a diabetic foot ulcer from necrotic wound base (A), to surgical debridement (B), to complete healing (C). A novel method used by the authors to ensure a more thorough debridement of wounds, especially those pending closure, is to completely paint the wound with methylene blue immediately before debridement
  5. Diabetic heel ulcers constitute one of the most frustrating problems for podiatric physicians. Pressure ulcers affect nearly 2 million people each year and account for annual healthcare costs that range between $2.2 billion and $3.6 billion. The heel is the second leading site for development of pressure ulcers after the sacrum.1 While patients with diabetes are living longer than in the past.

There are five types of non-selective and selective debridement methods, but many factors determine what method will be most effective for your patient. 1 Determining the debridement method is based not only on the wound presentation and evaluation, but also on the patient's history and physical examination.

Search Domain Vacuum-assisted closure of a wound is a type of therapy to help wounds heal. It's also known as wound VAC. During the treatment, a device decreases air pressure on the wound. This can help the wound heal more quickly. The gases in the air around us put pressure on the surface of our bodies. A wound vacuum device removes this pressure over the. The site of the wound may aid diagnosis; diabetic foot ulcers often arise in areas of abnormal pressure distribution arising from disordered foot architecture. Venous ulceration occurs mostly in the gaiter area of the leg (see next article in this series). Non-healing ulcers, sometimes in unusual sites, should prompt consideration of malignancy
