THE CHALLENGE OF HEALING STALLED DFUs IS REAL
YET FASTER HEALING IS CRITICAL

Many factors make DFUs challenging to heal. When deciding if your treatment is tough enough for DFUs, you may want to consider these important factors:

Dysfunctional 
wound 
environment

Patient 
comorbidities

Patient 
noncompliance

In stalled DFUs, abnormalities with the patient's cells, signaling molecules, and ECM are common.8-14

Comorbid conditions may affect a patient's ability to heal.15,16

In DFUs, adherence to self-care practices is typically low.17

ECM=extracellular matrix.
DFUs put patients at risk for serious complications, including amputation.

Every 5 minutes

a lower limb amputation occurs among patients with diabetes18,*
