Özet

Background and Objective: The treatment of diabetic foot osteomyelitis (DFO) is a controversial issue, with disagreement regarding whether the best treatment is surgical or conservative. The purpose of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with DFO who were treated with antibiotherapy alone and those who underwent concurrent minor amputation.
