Apligraf® Wound FactsApligraf® Wound Facts and Preventsion

As you know, treating diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers can be challenging, both emotionally and physically. Additionally, treatments like Apligraf® do not address the underlying health conditions that lead to these types of ulcers. Which means even after successful treatment of an ulcer, you are still at risk for another one if you don’t improve your existing health condition. That’s why doing what you can to prevent a non-healing wound from starting or coming back is the most effective way to improve your quality of life.
