Ulcers
Well, what you mean I suppose is a Wagner Stage 3 ulceration since using the term 'Stage" to describe an ulcer is reserved for pressure ulcers. A Wagner Staging is one of several, and probably the most common, ways of describing a certain stage of a diabetic foot ulcer. It means that there is an ulcer, tendon and or bone is exposed, and that there is evidence of either tendon or bone infection.
