Gauland, C. The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and Wound Healing Society Annual Meeting. 2011: Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center, Dallas, Texas.
Products: STIMULAN®
Purpose

A clinical study of 5 patients presenting with soft tissue, vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) infection to the foot, all facing amputation.

 

Results

Within 24 hours of STIMULAN bead implantation all 5 patients responded with a reduction of both clinical signs of infection and wound drainage. Within 4 days, all 5 patients showed no clinical, laboratory or radio-graphical signs of infection, and by day 28 all wounds had resurfaced with no clinical or radiographical signs of infection.
