Treatment of Hard-to-Heal Wounds with Collagen-Based Dressings eBook

Angelini PharmaThis e-book is sponsored by Angelini Pharma, Inc.

Chronic non-healing wounds represent an enormous problem. An estimated 6 million patients in the U.S. have chronic wounds from various etiologies, representing an estimated annual $20 billion dollar burden on the healthcare system.

BioPad is a 100% equine Type-1 collagen primary wound dressing used to treat hard-to-heal wounds. The BioPad collagen dressing has the highest collagen content on the market up to 5 times the amount of collagen. Its structure provides more real native collagen to “feed” elastase and active MMPs, speeding-up the fibroblast depletion of autologous collagen.

Case studies have shown that BioPad can speed wound healing, even in cases of chronic, non-healing wounds. Using BioPad as the first choice for treatment could help in the prevention of chronic wounds, relieving patient suffering and reducing the impact on the healthcare system.

Ankle brachial index PDF

The ankle brachial index (ABI) is a quantifiable measurement of lower leg blood supply. It’s a comparison of the systolic pressure in the upper arm to the systolic pressure at the ankle. The ankle pressure should be equal to or slightly higher than the arm pressure in the absence of arterial occlusive disease. The test is used to rule out significant arterial disease and to determine the amount of compression that can be safely applied.
