“This male type 1 diabetic was initially seen in September for a right Achilles tendon tear. After repair in October, the patient’s incision site separated, leaving an open wound that probed to the tendon. Following two graft applications in April, the patient began taking Juven.*
In concert with the use of a wound vacuum assistive device, Juven resulted in the observation and documentation of significant improvement to the patient’s wound.”
At baseline, the wound measured 2.5 cm long, 1.4 cm wide, and 0.3 cm deep. This male patient fell within the age range of 56-70. The healthcare professional in charge was a doctor of podiatric medicine.
Juven was used in addition to a standard wound care program. Results may vary depending on the type and severity of the wound.
