Foot infection with bone infection

Here is an example of a patient that had an infection in the left foot in the great toe joint.  This infection went down to the bone and a portion of the bone was removed to help heal the wound and remove the bad bone.  Since that time the patient is dealing with a wound on the side of the foot and swelling.  We are concerned about infection as time goes on but this patient has a VAC on the area that is helping to remove all the drainage and helping produce good (granular) tissue in that area.
