FORT WORTH, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 21, 2018 / WNDM Medical Inc. (OTCQB: WNDM) today announced the publication of a journal article in Orthopedics: ''The Effects of Platelet-Rich Plasma and Activated Collagen on Wound Healing in Primary Total Joint Arthroplasty'' by David Evans, BA and Bruce Evans, MD. This study examined whether two wound additives, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and activated collagen (CellerateRX Surgical), would improve postoperative wound healing and reduce complications after total knee or hip replacement surgery.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, WNDM Medical Inc. (WNDM) has a management team in place with significant healthcare industry experience that is committed to sales growth by providing efficacious products to improve patient outcomes.
Key Points from the Publication
• This was an unsponsored, institutional review board (IRB)-approved, prospective, randomized, single-blinded, controlled study with three cohorts of 30 patients each:
1. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
2. Activated collagen (CellerateRX® Surgical Activated Collagen® Peptides Powder)
3. Control (no treatment)
• The study reported three important findings:
1. Both PRP and CellerateRX Surgical led to statistically significant improvement in erythema, swelling and drainage
2. The total postoperative complication rate was statistically significantly lower in both the PRP and CellerateRX Surgical groups compared to the control group
3. Total blood loss during the first 48 hours was statistically significantly less when either PRP or CellerateRX Surgical were applied to the surgical wound
• CellerateRX Surgical is a less expensive and easier to use alternative to PRP.
• CellerateRX Surgical and PRP may be considered when blood loss and wound healing have been problematic for high-risk patients:
- High body mass index
''This is a landmark study demonstrating the positive clinical outcomes of using CellerateRX Surgical Peptides to manage postoperative wound healing,'' said Robert K. Mart, Vice President, Marketing. ''PRP is a commonly used surgical treatment that has been shown to promote wound healing. In fact, there are hundreds of publications on the benefits of PRP. This independent study found that CellerateRX Surgical was as effective as PRP and provided statistically significantly improved outcomes as compared to no wound care adjuvant.''
''We have had a tremendous response from our sales team and distributor network to this study,'' said Zach B. Fleming, Vice President, Sales. ''We have already provided training to ensure our sales teams understand the study and know how to appropriately discuss these results with clinicians. This will definitely help us achieve our goal of expanding the use of CellerateRX Surgical to benefit many more patients.''
