  1. *Group I includes patients who did not progress to active Charcot foot
  2. *Group II includes patients who did progress to active Charcot foot
  3. Adapted from Wukich et al [4]. Characteristics from a population of people with early Charcot foot that either progressed to active CN or did not. The Group (Group II) who progressed to active CN endured a significant difference in overall complications and were diagnosed with CN much later than the group who did not progress to active Charcot foot (Group I)
