The wart's disruption of the normal plantar dermis surface is apparent and illustrates why so many patients describe the lesion
as a painful impediment to, what should be, their regular day-to-day activities.
Note the intact dermis where the lesion was located. No opportunity for post-op infections
or diabetic ulcerations with this treatment! This outcome was achieved without invasive surgery, cryosurgery, vesicants or caustics.
No More Vesicants!
No Needles Required!
This was the mosaic verrucae on a diabetic amputee's stump. Lesion is painful & affects his ability to wear his prosthesis. All treatments were unsuccessful in improving his condition.
Note the reduction in size & thickness of the mosaic lesion before final debridement. The lesion was very "moist" which complicated
the effective application of the TDS solutions.
Observe how very thick and large the wart
lesion is. It isn't hard to understand how this patient's quality of life was being adversely compromised on a daily basis.
Diabetic Amputee's Mosaic Wart Treated with TDS
Treatment by Javier La Fontaine, DPM | Assoc. Professor, UT Southwestern Medical Center | Dallas, Texas
This is the mosaic lesion's appearance after a final painless debridement that resulted in a remarkable ~80% reduction in overall size! Amazingly, no needles or anesthesia were required for any phase of this treatment.
