Chronic, nonhealing wounds are a growing health care problem in the United States, affecting more than 6.5 million patients annually. Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), venous leg ulcers (VLUs) and surgical wounds can be difficult to heal with standard treatment options. In this webinar, Dr Davidson will define a new class of engineered synthetic matrices as well as review and discuss clinical data and how you can improve your clinical outcomes with this novel new treatment option.
- Review the prevalence and impact of DFUs, VLUs, and surgical wounds.
- Discuss different advanced treatment options for DFUs, VLUs, and surgical wounds.
- Review a new class of engineered synthetic matrices.
- Discuss clinical data utilizing synthetic matrices for soft tissue repair as compared to other standard treatment options.
