Total Contact Casting
The Total contact cast has become the gold standard for the treatment of plantar neuropathic ulcers in those with diabetes. The key to the total contact cast is the use of minimal padding, the close conformity to the skin, the control of the oedema and the off-loading of the ulcer. The mean healing time of plantar ulcers with a total contact cast is around 4-6 weeks.
