Abstract

Copper nanoparticles were prepared by the sol-gel process to obtain nanoparticles of 2.4 nm. The material was characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). This nanomaterial was used to treat a diabetic foot ulcer in a 58 years old male patient. The patient presented type 2 diabetes mellitus with13 years of evolution, with macro and micro vascular complications. The illness shown by retinopathy, state 2 chronic renal disease, peripheral artery disease, critical limb ischemia with the presence of an ulcer in the right heel and anipsilateral necrotic lesion in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th toes. This patient was already programmed for a supracondylar amputation. In order to avoid the amputation, the patient was included into the clinic trial to be treated with copper nanoparticles. After a three-month treatment, the ulcer evolved with positive clinical results.
