PEDIS Classification

(Redirected from PEDIS classification)

German: PEDIS-Klassifikation


The PEDIS classification is a faceted classification that provides a taxonomy for classifying lesions in patients with diabetic foot syndrome.

Every lesion is described according to the following scheme:

  • Perfusion
    • Grade 1: no symptoms/signs of PAD
    • Grade 2: symptoms or signs of PAD, but not CLI
    • Grade 3: CLI
  • Extent/size (cm^2)
  • Depth/tissue loss
  • Infection
    • Grade 1: no symptoms/signs
    • Grade 2: Inflammation of skin/sc only
    • Grade 3: Extensive erythema deeper than skin/sc
    • Grade 4: Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS)
  • Sensation
    • Grade 1: No loss of protective sensation
    • Grade 2: Loss of protective sensation

Example: P2E1D2I1S2.

An alternative approach for describing diabetic foot lesions is the Wagner-Armstrong classification.
