AnotationOne of the most disabling complications of diabetes is diabetic foot ulcer. Diabetic foot ulcer not only leads to physical disability but also affect the quality of life (QoL) of diabetics. Treatment of diabetic foot ulcer is a long-term process and creates favorable conditions for the patients that can play an important role in maintaining QoL of diabetics. By our research we have decided to analyse data about QoL of patients with diabetic foot ulcer in different health care systems of Visegrad countries. We expect the exchange and presentation of study results in an international context.
