Traumatic Lower Extremity Wound

Patient History

Patient is a 53-year-old male with a partial-thickness wound on their medial ankle following necrotizing fasciitis due to trauma from a motor vehicle accident. Incision and drainage (I&D) with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) was done multiple times to the wound prior to Restrata application.  The patient is an alcoholic and suffers from coronary artery disease, acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and cirrhosis of the liver. *

Treatment

Restrata MiniMatrix (500mg) was applied to the wound bed, covered with a non-adherent dressing, and secured with NPWT at Week 0. NPWT was changed at Week 1. Restrata helped to fill in the defect and provided a better-granulated tissue base for STSG in this complex traumatic wound. At Week 7, the patient received STSG. The patient showed a successful graft with excellent skin pigmentation. **

Conclusion

Once a healthy wound bed was established with Restrata, a STSG was applied Week 7. Restrata supported new granulation tissue allowing for transition to definitive closure with a STSG.
