What Can You Do When Wound Healing Stalls?

You know it when you see it. A wound youve been treating for over 30 days wont close. Healing has stalled. And now its considered a chronic wound. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than six million cases of chronic wounds cost $20 billion each year in the United States. Venous ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic ulcers, and surgical incisions are wounds that may be likely to stall.

How can you optimize the healing process?

How 100% native collagen works

One key factor of chronic wounds is an elevated level of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). At elevated levels, MMPs not only break down necrotic tissue, but also viable collagen produced during the wound healing process. This can lead to stalled wounds. Native collagen wound dressings can be used to manage chronic wounds. The addition of collagen to the wound bed may reduce excess MMP activity to promote the wound healing cycle.

Evaluation of a Bovine 100% Native Collagen for the Treatment of Chronic Wounds

The usual measures of debridement, infection control and moisture balance may not be sufficient for wound closure in all patients. In these cases, wound dressings such as collagen may help promote wound healing. This case series describes the authors experience with a bovine-derived, 100% native, type I collagen in patients with chronic and persistent wounds.

This case series included 20 patients with 21 chronic wounds ranging from 0.6 to 101.4 cm2 that had been recalcitrant to prior treatment. The total duration of treatment with the bovine-derived 100% native collagen was up to 12 weeks. Complete wound healing was achieved for 15 of the patients in this series; wound healing times varied from 13 to 68 days.

Two patients achieved wound healing, using a combination of the bovine-derived 100% native collagen and other therapies, at 114 days and 107 days, respectively, after starting the wound healing process with solely the bovine-derived 100% native collagen treatment.

After managing the wounds with a bovine-derived, 100% native, type I collagen, 83% achieved wound closure within 90 days. (15 out of 18 patients)
