ACell MatriStem® Products Demonstrated To Be Effective On Hard To Heal Wounds

COLUMBIA, Md., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ACell MatriStem ® medical devices were featured in a peer-reviewed article, "Porcine Urinary Bladder matrix: a Retrospective Study and Establishment of Protocol," published in the October, 2012 issue of the Journal of Wound Care ( www.journalofwoundcare.com).  Analysis showed a decrease in mean closure time after application of MatriStem in wounds that had received previous applications of other advanced wound care products. All wounds utilizing MatriStem achieved complete closure including those with exposed bone, tendon, and joint closure in the thirty-four patient study. In the study MatriStem was shown to be a novel advanced wound care modality in the treatment of complex lower extremity diabetic, venous insufficient, ischemic and decubitus ulcers.

Patients were treated with MatriStem medical devices, the only commercially available form of urinary bladder matrix (UBM), at the Eastern Colorado Health Care System, Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center in Denver, CO. The study was independent in nature. No external sources of funding for this study were received by the authors or the VA. The authors had no conflicts of interest to declare.

"We are very satisfied with the results of this independent study on non-healing wounds. MatriStem has shown to be effective where other products fail," Rodney Bosley, ACell President & COO said. "Results like these have established ACell as a leader in Regenerative Medicine."
