Jill, a 68-year old woman, underwent a below-the-knee amputation in which muscle flap failure occurred, and resulted in a debilitating, non-healing wound.
For five months, Jill suffered with a non-healing wound at her below-the-knee amputation site. With ActiGraft® – a new, natural way to heal chronic and acute wounds – Jill reached complete healing in eight weeks.
Jill, a diabetic with peripheral vascular disease – a circulation disorder caused by narrowing, blockage, or spasms in a blood vessel – suffered a below-the-knee amputation with failure to the muscle flap.
A muscle flap is commonly used to eradicate infection and revascularize bone, however, it was unsuccessful. An epithelial bridge caused the original wound at the amputation site to divide into two, separate wounds – further obstructing Jill’s healing process.
April, a paraplegic woman, suffered with a debilitating non-healing pressure injury on her buttock for six months.
