Case studies are an excellent way to demonstrate to other wound care practitioners, and to patients, what possible treatment advances and options there are. We are constantly amazed by how wounds can cause such devastation to feet and legs. Yet, with attention to wound-care principles, an open mind, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to heal a wound, even the absolute worst wounds can heal, limbs can be salvaged, and the limb can actually be functional. Look through some of our case histories and see if you agree that the human body’s ability to heal itself is truly awe-inspiring.
