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.

This white paper contains information on the following topics:

Effects of amputation on quality of life
High cost of amputations
Mortality risk after amputation
Study of wound care approaches and observed outcomes for amputations
Advanced wound care modalities in observed outcomes for amputations
EPIFIX in observed outcomes for amputations
