* Selective debridement was defined as sharp debridement using scissors, scalpels, or curettes.
† Ulcer-free week was defined as each week the wound is closed in an epithelialized state.
Compared to selective debridement alone, SANTYL Ointment + selective debridement resulted in:
per ulcer-free week†23
|Carter MJ, et al. (2017)23|
|Objective||Determine the cost-effectiveness of adding SANTYL Ointment to selective debridement compared with selective debridement alone in the treatment of stage IV PUs among patients in a hospital outpatient department setting.|
|Patient demographics||Two matched groups of patients with stage IV PUs:
Groups matched for gender (~50% male), race (~63% Caucasian), and ambulatory (~64%)
Markov simulation over a two-year horizon based on real-world outcomes data and resource utilization from the USWR
Important Safety Information:Use of SANTYL Ointment should be terminated when debridement is complete and granulation tissue is well established.
One case of systemic hypersensitivity has been reported after 1 year of treatment with collagenase and cortisone. Occasional slight transient erythema has been noted in surrounding tissue when applied outside the wound.
