The Possibility of Amputation Is a Real Concern
Amputations of extremities resulting from the complications of diabetes, infections, and burns negatively affect patients’ quality of life, incur a high cost burden, and increase the risk of mortality. However, evidence shows that many of these amputations can be avoided with the use of appropriate limb salvage protocols.
This white paper, sponsored by MIMEDX, describes the promising findings of a retrospective analysis of patients with diabetic foot ulcers who were treated with advanced modalities, including wound care with EPIFIX, a dehydrated amnion-chorion membrane allograft used as a skin substitute.
Wound care professionals whose patients are at risk for lower extremity amputation will be encouraged by the results of this study.
