Wound Healing Treatment Modalities


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves placing the patient in a specially designed chamber that administers a 100 percent oxygen-rich environment under slight pressure. Oxygen reaches the wound through the bloodstream, resulting in improved healing, greater blood vessel formation and reduced likelihood of infection. This treatment provides a non-invasive procedure for patients with difficult wounds, crush injuries, acute burns or diabetes-related ulcers.


Vacuum-Controlled Assisted Closure (VAC) Therapy is a system that uses controlled negative pressure (vacuum) to help promote wound healing. Clinical studies demonstrate that the VAC Therapy System also removes infectious materials and other fluids from the wound. The VAC Therapy System employs a computer-controlled therapy unit to maintain a constant negative pressure on the wound site.


Apligraf, a living skin device first used in New Jersey at Trinitas Regional Medical Center, is bilayered, cultured skin that has brought relief to thousands of patients suffering from venous leg ulcers and other types of hard-to-heal wounds. In a recent study at Trinitas, nine patients with limb-threatening ulcers were treated with Apligraf. All had been referred to Trinitas after other medical practitioners had recommended amputation. Each patient healed completely in an average of 76 days.
