For diabetics, a small wound on a foot can lead to major problems, including amputation.
"We have over 100,000 amputations a year in the U.S. due to foot ulcers, and that's unacceptable," said Dr. Joseph P. Cavorsi, medical director at The Center for Advanced Wound Care in Wyomissing and a vascular surgeon at St. Joseph Medical Center, Bern Township. "That many amputations is an absurdity."
There are thousands of Berks County residents with diabetes who are at risk for amputation, Cavorsi said.
His expertise and his strong feeling on the subject is why Cavorsi will be the lead clinical investigator in an upcoming nationwide study on whether the use of an ointment promotes wound closure.
...
Cavorsi and Driver are among 10 investigators participating in the study.
...
"So this research could be very important," Cavorsi said.
The ulcers develop because diabetics often have numbness in their feet, which allows small wounds to go unnoticed.
Such wounds can develop when a person steps on something sharp or even from wearing inappropriate shoes, Cavorsi said.
"You or I might scream bloody murder from those things, but a diabetic might not even feel it," he said.
Complications from diabetes then prevent such wounds from healing.
Standard care for those wounds is effective only 30 percent of the time, Cavorsi said.
"We must focus on more advanced therapies," Cavorsi said.
The ointment being tested is known as an enzymatic debriding agent, which removes dead or unhealthy tissue.
The product, which is made by Healthpoint, Fort Worth, Texas, has been on the market, but it has not been clinically proven to promote wound closure, Cavorsi said.
...
Of thousands of products that are on the market, only three have been shown to promote wound closure, Cavorsi said.
There will be 10 or more patients at each site who will be part of the study, Cavorsi said.
...
Anyone who wants to be evaluated to determine eligibility to be in the study should call the wound care center, Cavorsi said.
"The perfect patient to be in the study are diabetics with wounds on the bottom of their feet that aren't closing," Cavorsi said. "There's a lot of them around Berks County."
