Case Report Featuring Ultra-Thick Amniotic Membrane Allograft for Treatment of Traumatic, Complex Wound Presented at SAWC Spring 2023
Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon Highlights Efficacy of BioTissue Neox® 1K in Treating Patient with Lower Extremity Injury Sustained in Motorcycle Accident
MIAMI, April 27, 2023—At Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring 2023, an orthopaedic trauma surgeon will present a poster demonstrating the effectiveness of BioTissue Neox® 1K in the treatment of a traumatic, complex wound case.
Christopher Stewart, MD, of Baptist Medical Center in Little Rock, Ark., utilized the ultra-thick Amniotic Membrane (AM) allograft to treat a traumatic cavity wound sustained by a 39-year-old patient in a high-speed motorcycle accident.
In the case study, Dr. Stewart reports that the patient presented with multiple traumatic injuries, including ipsilateral open fractures of the femur, tibial shaft and plafond, a femoral neck fracture, and a large complex wound nearly circumferential around the knee. He noted that these wounds are particularly difficult to treat as they are more susceptible to infection, necrosis, and osteomyelitis—all of which are risk factors for limb loss. To expedite wound healing and reduce risk of complications, Dr. Stewart utilized a Neox® 1K ultra-thick AM allograft as a wound covering and shows the patient’s progress over the course of 34 weeks.
Dr. Stewart concluded that the ultra-thick AM allograft was shown to support wound closure for a traumatic, complex wound over a joint that had exposed nerve, artery, and tendons.
“Dr. Stewart’s case demonstrates the unmatched power of amniotic tissue in creating a protective environment for regenerative healing to occur in even the most traumatic, complex wounds. For this patient, BioTissue Neox® 1K very well may have prevented amputation, helping to restore life after surgery,” said Ted Davis, CEO, BioTissue. “It is a privilege to partner with physicians to elevate the standard of wound care, and ultimately, the quality of life for their patients.”
Dr. Stewart’s poster, Treatment of a Traumatic, Complex Wound Using Ultra-Thick Amniotic Membrane Allograft (entry CS-120), will be on display throughout the show at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Prince George’s AB. The poster reception will be held on Friday, April 28 from 7:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
