Someone please help Brooke.  I know somewhere out there several of us 
have references.  Mine are at the office and I'm composing this from 
home.  As for ABI's predicting healing potential,  I suspect you'll get 
as many different answers as responses.  Terry Case will likely add 
something when he gets his sun roasted tail back to the frigid Green 
Mountains of VT.  This is an issue of great concern to him lately.  How 
many ulcers appear on non-diabetic feet with compressible vessels?  This is,
of course, a rhetorical question.
