Thanks to the treatment that we implemented, Mrs Helena can walk normally, does not feel pain, and most importantly, she avoided amputation.
The wound on Helena’s big toe had been unsuccessfully treated for two and a half years. The wound had been treated only with locally applied dressings, without any reasonable causal action. The patient was at risk of amputation of the toe, and perhaps even the whole foot.
When Mrs Helena came to us, we referred her to a specialist in vein diseases – Professor Paweł Maga, because the wound had been caused by artery obstruction. After unblocking the arteries, we applied a biological dressing with larvae. The larvae cleansed 50% of the wound after the first dressing application, and the remaining 50% after the second application. Subsequently, the bone that had already been damaged became visible so we had to remove its parts.
After this procedure, granulation tissue grew beautifully on the toe and completely filled the wound.
Thanks to the treatment that we implemented, Mr Zdzisław can walk normally, does not feel pain, and most importantly, he avoided amputation.
As a result of negligence in diabetic foot syndrome, Mr Zdzisław suffered damage to blood vessels and nerve fibres, resulting in a large, non-healing wound. Hospital treatment resulted in the amputation of three toes. Mr Zdzisław was in great pain, experienced a breakdown and saw no point in further treatment. Thanks to his wife, he came to AZ MED. We applied larval therapy, off-loading of the lower limb, surgical debridement of the wound with removal of some parts of metatarsal bones. Unfortunately, his toes could not be saved, but we managed to save his foot. The patient avoided amputation and we healed his wound. Now, Mr Zdzisław is able to perform normal daily-life activities, he can drive again, he is active and happy. ‘AZ MED has restored my normal life’, he said.
