Over time, acute and chronic, nonhealing wounds impose heavy financial and quality-of-life burdens on patients. The introduction of new therapies for wounds is essential in benefiting the patient, and in this report, the clinical experience of various wound care providers treating wounds with dehydrated amnion/chorion membrane (dACM) is presented.

Healing of tendon injuries is often plagued by significant scar formation and compromised biomechanical function. For those with diabetes, these injuries are further complicated by alterations to the ...
Keratinized tissue around implants is beneficial for soft tissue stability and esthetics. The aim of this investigation is to show the use of amnion/chorion membrane to increase the keratinized tissue...
Although therapies with human amnion/chorion are used to ameliorate acute and chronic wounds, it is unclear which component of the amnion/chorion tissue promotes wound healing. To characterize the com...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is known to improve wound healing in the setting of chronic, nonhealing wounds of irradiated skin; however, failure of wound healing may still occur. Dehydrated human amnion/...
The 4th International Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention conference, hosted by the Journal of Wound Care and the University of Huddersfield, was held earlier this year in Las Vegas. A key theme w...
This trial aims to determine if intra-operative use of human dehydrated amnion chorion allograft improves post-operative patient healing outcomes.
Hypothesis: There will be an additional reduction of pocket depth and gain of clinical attachment when dehydrated human amnion-chorion membrane (dHACM) is placed into the periodontal disea...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of human dehydrated amnion chorion allograft in closed hemorrhoidectomy as assessed by patient and wound assessments.
Multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled feasibility trial to determine the safety and effectiveness of EpiFix® plus Control (Mepilex ® Ag) as compared to Control alone for the t...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of dehydrated amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) in the treatment of patients with stage II or III pressure ulcer and decub...
The outermost extra-embryonic membrane surrounding the developing embryo. In REPTILES and BIRDS, it adheres to the shell and allows exchange of gases between the egg and its environment. In MAMMALS, the chorion evolves into the fetal contribution of the PLACENTA.
INFLAMMATION of the placental membranes (CHORION; AMNION) and connected tissues such as fetal BLOOD VESSELS and UMBILICAL CORD. It is often associated with intrauterine ascending infections during PREGNANCY.
The thin layers of tissue that surround the developing embryo. There are four extra-embryonic membranes commonly found in VERTEBRATES, such as REPTILES; BIRDS; and MAMMALS. They are the YOLK SAC, the ALLANTOIS, the AMNION, and the CHORION. These membranes provide protection and means to transport nutrients and wastes.
An extra-embryonic membranous sac derived from the YOLK SAC of REPTILES; BIRDS; and MAMMALS. It lies between two other extra-embryonic membranes, the AMNION and the CHORION. The allantois serves to store urinary wastes and mediate exchange of gas and nutrients for the developing embryo.
A highly vascularized extra-embryonic membrane, formed by the fusion of the CHORION and the ALLANTOIS. It is mostly found in BIRDS and REPTILES. It serves as a model for studying tumor or cell biology, such as angiogenesis and TISSUE TRANSPLANTATION.
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
