Use of an autologous leucocyte and platelet-rich fibrin patch on hard-to-heal DFUs: a pilot study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Leucopatch is a leukocyte and platelet-rich fibrin patch that provides concentrated blood cells and signal substances to the surface of an ulcer. It is produced by centrifugation of the patient's own venous blood. The aim of this pilot multicentre cohort study was to evaluate effects of the leucocyte patch in patients with hard-to-heal diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
