Dr. Fusco’s patient presented with end-stage renal disease on dialysis. Venous insufficiency and lower extremity edema, and hypertension. He was in a car accident approximately 30 years prior.
The patient had an open draining wound on his leg for over a year and was recommended amputation. As a healer and to avoid amputation Dr. Fusco talked to the patient about Neox and the power of human birth tissue. A patient with multiple comorbidities and a desire to prevent amputation is our focus to alleviate suffering and address the patient unmet needs realizing the full potential of regenerative therapy.
Dr. Fusco excised the wound in the OR, removed the infected bone, packed with antibiotic cement, and removed the hardware. He applied Neox 1K directly over the bone and attempted closure knowing it would open. The healing cascade and the power of our product is seen in these images.
