Lower extremity ulceration (LEU) is prevalent throughout the world and poses a major threat to limb integrity. Over 20 percent of all hospital admissions in the US for patients with diabetes are related to LEUs. The costs for these hospitalizations are estimated at over $2.5 billion. Failure of these ulcers to heal often leads to lower extremity amputation (LEA). In addition, nearly half of all patients who undergo LEA will ultimately require an amputation of the opposite limb within 5 years. The estimated annual cost of care for treatment of lower extremity ulcers is roughly $130,000 per patient. This cost includes physician visits, hospital admissions, home health care, wound care supplies, rehabilitation, time lost from work, and jobs lost. The direct cost of amputation in the US is estimated at $22,700 for a toe amputation, and $51,300 for an above-the-knee amputation in 2001 dollars.

Diabetes is also a key cause of foot skin ulcers. The prevalence of diabetes in the U.S. is currently about 6 percent, or over 18 million people, including about 5 million undiagnosed people. In addition, type-2 diabetes appears to be increasing in the US. Diabetes is the leading non-traumatic cause of amputation in the US. The total number of LEAs in diabetic patients in the U.S. is over 80,000 annually. The 3-year mortality rate after an LEA is between 35 and 50 percent. Despite the advancement of increasingly sophisticated and expensive technologies such as substitute skin products, hyperbaric oxygen, and negative pre
