Bachground: Diabetic foot is the most common complication of hospitalization in diabetic patients. The use of herbal products for the relief of diabetic foot in developing countries have acquired considerable acceptance. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Pistacia atlantica (local name “Bane”) for the treatment of diabetic foot. Materials and Methods: This double-blind randomized clinical trial study was conducted on patients (n=60) with diabetic foot in Beheshti hospital (Kashan, Iran) during 1388-1394. The participants were divided into two equal Intervention and Control groups. The wound dressing in Control and Intervention groups were done using the placebo and “Bane” ointment. Both groups were underwent the conventional (bandages and antibiotic) therapy. Afterwards, the wound characteristics and the duration of wound recovery were assessed in both groups. Result: The Mean for hospital stay and recovery in intervention (13.8 compared to 33.7 days, respectively) and control groups (22.7 compared to 44.6 days, respectively) was statistically significant (P<0.05). After discharge from hospital, the redness and wound discharge in the Control group was significantly lower than the control group. Conclusion: The “Bane” extract inhibits the growth of some groups of bacteria in diabetic foot ulcers and hence reduces the recovery time and hospital stay.
