The management of the diabetic foot suffers or benefits from a plethora of methods and techniques. However, regardless of the therapeutic choice, one step is common: it is debridement. As a specialized center in the diabetic foot and its complications, we see very often, for their first visit to our outpatient's clinic, patients in care in other medical clinics/hospitals, and where the indication for amputation has already been made. Often, we find ourselves confronted with debrided wounds with irreversible damages hardly recoverable. Our understanding of debridement is straightforward and is based on clear, universally recognized definitions [1].
