Las Vegas woman's leg heals with help from ActiGraft treatment
Mhel suffered from an aggressive form of gangrene on her toe that required a partial foot amputation. The infection continued to spread and Mhel risked losing not only her entire foot, but most of her leg below the knee.
Learn how ActiGraft® helped save Mhel from losing not only her entire foot, but most of her leg below the knee.
|Mhel suffered from a stroke a few years ago, and as a result, her sister quit her job to become Mhel's primary caretaker. While massaging Mhel's legs, she noticed a dark mole on Mhel's left leg. Mhel developed an aggressive form of gangrene that – after unsuccessful treatment – required a partial foot amputation. Even with the amputation, the infection continued to spread and Mhel risked a second amputation – this time, below-the-knee.
Dr. Wahab suggested ActiGraft, a new treatment option that uses a patient’s own blood to create an autologous blood clot tissue that is applied topically to support the healing of cutaneous wounds.
With one application over the course of (8-weeks), Mhel’s wound was eighty percent healed. Throughout the treatment, Mhel saw constant progress in the wound – it started to heal.
PEACE OF MIND
Prior to ActiGraft, Mhel lost hope. She feared losing her leg if the wound didn’t heal, and she feared losing her ability to ever walk again. But now, Mhel has hope - “Next step: I’m trying to go walk again. In the future, maybe I can go any place that I do before."
