This presentation will discuss the chronicity of foot ulcers in patients with diabetes and a novel cell/ tissue-based therapy that could accelerate healing. This discussion will include evidence-based studies, case reviews, and a hypothesis of the mechanism of action.
- To discuss the epidemiology of the diabetic foot.
- To review the differences between acute and chronic wound biochemistry and the extracellular matrix.
- To learn about an autologous topical blood matrix tissue matrix that has been shown to accelerate wound healing.
