THVMG Advanced Wound care

Advanced Wound Care

Complex Wounds which are difficult-to-heal, result from different factors, including, disruption from tissue loss, comorbid disease states, and inadequate blood flow. These wound types require wound care specialists to incorporate an extra component into their management, such as wound biologics (or skin substitutes). 


What are Skin Substitutes?

Skin substitutes are artificial or biological materials that provide coverage to exposed complex skin wounds. With time, these materials can restore skin functionalities to the affected wound patient.


Benefits of Skin Substitutes

Skin substitutes accelerate wound healing and minimize infections, complications, and wound dehydration.

Skin substitutes are ideal for non-healing or difficult-to-heal wounds, including vascular insufficiency or venous ulcers, diabetic neuropathic ulcers, and pressure ulcers. There is a  increased likelihood of infection, amputation and even mortality rate. Other benefits of skin substitutes include:

What are the Indications for Skin Substitutes?

THVMG Physicians are more likely to consider skin substitutes for patients with superficial, partial, and deep arterial/vascular/diabetic wounds. Moreover, chronic and non-healing wound patients and skin graft donors are ideal candidates for skin substitutes.

Other indications for incorporating skin substitutes into wound healing include:
