Aims: Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) have a complex multifactorial pathophysiology. It is crucial to identify essential prognostic variables to streamline therapeutic actions and quality-of-care audits. Although SINBAD and University of Texas (UT), the most frequently used prognostic classification systems, were prospectively validated, not all individual parameters were shown to have consistent associations with healing. In this study, we used a bottom-up approach relying on robust methods to identify independent predictors of DFU healing. Methods: 1,664 DFU patients were included…
