Amit Kumar C Jain.

Around 80% of all the lower limb amputations are preceded by a foot ulcer. There are various classifications for diabetic foot ulcers out of which the two commonly used classifications are Wagner’s ulcer classification and the classification of University of Texas. The author proposes another simple new classification specific for diabetic foot ulcer which is one of the common diabetic foot complication. This classification is an addition to the author’s already existing new classifications on various aspects of diabetic foot so that a new Amit Jain’s principle and practice of diabetic foot could be devised for improvising and standardizing the practice of diabetic foot. According to this new classification, diabetic foot can be clinically classified into 3 simple classes.

Key words: Diabetic foot, ulcer, new classification, Amit Jain's, Wagner's
