Abstract

The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the use of DermaPure, a decellularised human skin allograft, in the treatment of a variety of challenging wounds. This retrospective observational analysis reviewed a total of 37 patients from 29 different wound clinics across the USA. Each patient received one application of DermaPure which was followed until complete closure. A statistical analysis was performed with the end point being complete healing. All wounds on average, had a duration of 56 weeks and healed in an average time of 10·58 weeks. Individual wound categories included diabetic foot ulcers, which healed in 8·21 weeks; venous leg ulcers, which healed in 11·29 weeks; and surgical/traumatic wounds, which healed in 11·8 weeks.
