Using of Amniotic Membrane Derivatives for the Treatment of Chronic Wounds
MetadataShow full item record
Amniotic membrane grafts have some therapeutic potential for wounds healing. Early application of amniotic membrane turned out as beneficial in healing ulcers, burns, and dermal injuries. Since the second half of the 20th century, the autotransplants of amniotic/chorion tissue have been also used for the treatment of chronic neuropathic wounds, cornea surface injuries, pterygium and conjunctivochalasis, and dental and neurosurgical applications. The aim of this publication is to prepare a coherent overview of amniotic membrane derivatives use in the field of wound healing and also its efficacy. In total 60 publications and 39 posters from 2000-2020 were examined. In these examined publications of case studies with known study results was an assemblage of 1141 patients, and from this assemblage 977 were successfully cured. In case of posters, the assemblage is 570 patients and 513 successfully cured. From the investigated data it is clear that the treatment efficacy is very high-86% and 90%, respectively. Based on this information the use of the amniotic membrane for chronic wounds can be considered highly effective.
