Osiris Announces a Peer-Reviewed Publication Reporting the Use of Placental Membranes for Refractory Cutaneous Sinus Tracts of Surgical Origin
Despite advances in surgical techniques, postoperative complications such as infection, retained foreign body, seroma or hematoma may lead to the development of a sinus tract. A sinus tract, also referred to as wound tunneling, is a cutaneous opening with a narrow passageway that tracks in one direction underneath the tissues and is oftentimes blind ended or accompanied by drainage. Conservative wound care failure may necessitate further surgical interventions that are associated with high risk for complications and prolonged hospitalization. The purpose of the published study was to assess the clinical utility of placental products as an alternative to surgical treatment for refractory cutaneous sinus tracts of surgical origin in twelve patients. The primary clinical analysis was the proportion of complete sinus tract depth resolution without exudate. Six patients received a viable
cryopreserved placental membrane (vCPM) (Grafix®;
Grafix is a cryopreserved placental membrane comprised of an extracellular matrix (ECM) rich in collagen, growth factors, and viable cells native to the tissue. Grafix is processed using Osiris' proprietary technology; it is flexible and conforming and designed as a wound cover/barrier for application directly to hard-to-treat acute and chronic wounds, including but not limited to diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers and thermal burns.
