FERNANDEZ-MONTEQUIN, José I  and  SANTIESTEBAN, Llipsy. Can Heberprot-P change the surgical concepts on treating diabetic foot?. Biotecnol Apl [online]. 2010, vol.27, n.2, pp.165-170. ISSN 1027-2852.

Fourteen patients having diabetic foot ulcers on their limbs and who received amputation criteria at certain degree were included in this study, giving their consent to be treated. They were subjected to traditional medical-dietary and hygienic medical care, together with injections of Heberprot-P of 75 µg per vial being administered intralesionally in alternate days. A useful granulation tissue was developed in all the cases. All the patients preserved their limbs, regardless of the previous amputation criteria, following the ambulatory treatment.

Keywords : Heberprot-P; diabetic foot ulcer; surgical concept; Wagner classification.
