Care for Wound Comes from Womb
Wound healing disorders present serious clinical problems especially in patients with concomitant diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity. Individual growth factors and cytokines enhance healing in acute wounds, whereas in chronic wounds they fail to achieve the same success. Chronic wounds lack an orderly progression of growth peptides which cannot be treated by application of single growth factor. Therefore, the need for mimicking tissue plays an essential role in healing of wounds.
A fast and effective wound healing process would substantially decrease medical costs, wound care supplies, and hospitalization; significantly improving the patients’ quality of life. A number of products are available for wound care purposes; none of the currently available options combine all the requirements necessary for quick and optimal cutaneous regeneration.
Amnion-Chorion Membrane Allograft Description
Placental tissues, amnion and chorion membranes separate the fetus from the endometrium. Amniotic membrane has three parts; an epithelial monolayer, a thick basement membrane, and an avascular stroma consisting of compact layer, fibroblast layer, spongy layer, cellular layer and reticular layer. The chorion membrane consists of two layers; pseudo- basement membrane and trophoblast.
Amniotic Membrane In Wound Healing:
- Widely used world over since early 1900s.
- Scientifically known to have over 250 proteins (cytokines, chemokines, growth factors) that can potentially aid in wound healing process.
- Modulates various wound healing pathways: cell migration and proliferation, anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties; antibacterial properties.
- Enhances wound healing process substantially.
- Sterile dehydrated human amnion-chorion allograft
