Healing Wounds That Would Not Heal

Pain Relief, End of Infections and Fast Healing of Chronic Wounds with Kerecis Omega3 Wound

Healing Wounds that Would Not Heal
 

Non-healing chronic lower extremity ulcers that are refractory to best practice wound care techniques are frustrating and demoralizing to both patients and health care professionals alike. When debridement, appropriate dressing use and antimicrobial therapy fail to heal these wounds, what more can be done to avoid amputation?

This case study tells the story of one patient’s healing journey, starting with years of pain, debility and ultimately sepsis caused by non-healing foot and leg ulcers that resisted all standard wound care methods and ending with healed tissue and restored function after treatment with a novel wound care product. The patient’s physician applied Kerecis Omega3 Wound fish skin grafts to the wounds, and in 8 weeks the patient’s chronic wounds had healed. This new, promising treatment was successful in this patient and may foster wound healing in other patients with severe chronic ulcers.

This case study will give hope to wound care professionals who have tried—without success—all the usual evidence-based techniques in a patient with a non-healing chronic wound. Kerecis Omega3 Wound fish skin grafts may be the answer to promote healing and prevent amputation in patients with serious chronic wounds.

This paper discusses the following topics:

Long-standing, painful non-healing lower extremity ulcers
Failure of best practice wound care to promote healing
Secondary infection of non-healing wounds
Delayed diagnosis of underlying condition
Anticipated double amputation
Successful treatment with Kerecis Omega3 Wound fish skin grafts

This paper is written for wound care clinicians and purchasing directors with an interest in product solutions.
