AbstractBackground: The aim of this study was to investigate atherosclerotic load at the lower extremity in patients with diabetic foot and charcot neuro-arthropathy and compare them with patients with diabetic foot without charcot neuro-arthropathy. Methods: This retrospective study consists of 78 patients with diabetic foot who had lower extremity angiography with antegrade approach. All patients were classified into two groups; neuro ischemic wounds with charcot neuro-arthropathy (30/78) and without charcot neuro-arthropathy (48/78).Atherosclerotic load at the side of diabetic foot was determined by using the Bollinger angiogram scoring method. Comparison of atherosclerotic load between the two groups was performed. Results: The mean of total and infrapopliteal level angiogram scoring of all patients was 33.3 (standard deviation, sd:+/- 17.2) and 29.3 (sd:+/- 15.6), respectively. The mean of total and infrapopliteal level angiogram scoring of neuroischemic wounds with charcot neuro-arthropathy group was 18.1 (sd:+/- 11.6) and 15.7 (sd:+/- 10.4), respectively. The mean of total and infrapopliteal level angiogram scoring of neuroischemic wounds without charcot neuro-arthropathy group was 42.8 (sd:+/- 12.7) and 37.7 (sd:+/- 12.0), respectively. There was a statistically significant difference between the two groups of mean total and infrapopliteal angiogram scoring (p < 0.01). Conclusion: This angiographic study confirms that the atherosclerotic load in patients with diabetic foot and chronic charcot neuro-arthropathy is significantly less than in patients with neuroischemic diabetic foot wounds without chronic charcot neuro-arthropathy.
