The objective of the Diabetic Foot Day/Pie Diabetico Symposium is  through presentations and panel sessions to discuss diagnostic and interventional strategies for diabetic foot ulcers and amputation prevention. The symposium offers the opportunity to review state-of-the-art concepts and techniques within the field of saving the diabetic foot. Furthermore the symposium will highlight the current status in Spain. Spain is a country that has one of the highest rates worldwide of amputations in people with diabetes. Multidisciplinary care by specialized units has proved to be useful in preventing injuries and avoiding major amputation, when the patient has complicated ulcers. However, there are still major challenges in establishing these models in Spain. The symposium will point out the current and future opportunities for the diabetic foot in a European perspective.
