Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- The evidence surrounding Charcot arthropathy was limited and of low quality. It is proposed that a prospective cohort study is undertaken to explore this question. The proposed study would monitor and evaluate the rates of Charcot arthropathy resulting from diabetes, rates and extent of amputation (major or minor), rates and extent of deformity, health-related quality of life, and hospital admission rates following strategies for the prevention of Charcot arthropathy or its sequelae.
