Diabetic foot ulcers can totally derail your life. Many people with these present end up hospitalized, and these ulcers are also the leading cause of non-traumatic lower foot amputations.
That’s where Epifix comes in. It helps you get a 90% healing rate in your diabetic foot ulcer in just 6 weeks.
Epifix is an “allograft,” which is a tissue graft from another human. This tissue is made of dHACM (dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane). It contains and preserves a number of essential proteins that make the healing process work.
Put simply, EpiFix acts as a barrier that protects your skin. It also helps scar tissue form and assists in controlling inflammation.
What makes EpiFix special and sets it apart from other similar diabetic foot ulcer products is the PURION purification process MiMedx uses. This process purifies the EpiFix grafts so they don’t cause any harm, while also delivering you the healing you need.
Part of what improves the healing ability of EpiFix is the derived platelet growth factor A and B present. “Growth factor A and B” simply refers to the ability of platelets to grow connective tissue, which assists in your healing.
It’s a fairly simple process. Basically, your existing diabetic foot ulcers must be confirmed to be free of infection. Using aseptic techniques to ensure EpiFix remains free of infection, the medical professional uses forceps to remove EpiFix from the sterilized internal pouch.
The medical professional then measures the area to be covered by EpiFix and cuts it to size, which can be up to 1 mm larger than your wound’s margins.
Then, EpiFix gets applied to your foot ulcer. EpiFix may be applied weekly or bi-weekly, depending on the status of your ulcer.
Yes. It’s regulated by Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act, and the American Association of Tissue Banks enforces, which oversees the product’s standards.
Basically, EpiFix is a pain-free way to get your diabetic foot ulcers under control.
