Advanced Treatment Modalities: Wound care interventions that are typically applied when standard of care treatments have failed to lead to significant wound closure progress. Treatments include collagen products, cellular and/or tissue-based products, negative pressure wound therapy, hyperbaric oxygen, and others.
Cellular and/or Tissue-Based Products: Cellular and/or tissue-based products (CTPs) actively promote healing by stimulating the patient’s own cells to regenerate healthy tissue.
Collagen: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. In wound healing, collagen attracts fibroblasts and encourages the deposition of new collagen to the wound bed.
