Diabetic patients with critical limb ischaemia may be affected by severe wound and skin ulcer infections. We report a case of a patient with bilateral femorotibial occlusion and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection. The patient was treated with femoroperoneal vascular bypass, debridement of wound dehiscence and targeted antimicrobial therapy for symptom resolution and healing of the wound.

Abstract

Diabetic patients with critical limb ischaemia may be affected by severe wound and skin ulcer infections. We report a case of a patient with bilateral femorotibial occlusion and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection. The patient was treated with femoroperoneal vascular bypass, debridement of wound dehiscence and targeted antimicrobial therapy for symptom resolution and healing of the wound.
