Abstract

A case series was performed to demonstrate the application of AmnioRederm™, an amniotic membrane product, on wounds with different aetiologies within the South African context. In the first case, AmnioRederm™ was used to treat a non-healing diabetic foot ulcer. The wound, which was nonresponsive to treatment with standard management, began to heal shortly after AmnioRederm™ was applied and within four weeks of treatment the wound size had reduced by over 50%. In the second case AmnioRederm™ was applied to exposed bone following a forefoot amputation which was non-granulating. Granulation of the bone tissue was observed after two applications of AmnioRederm™. This case series demonstrates the application of AmnioRederm™ as an adjunctive treatment of non-healing wounds.
