PICHIN QUESADA, Alexis et al. Revascularization and Heberprot-P® in an elderly . MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.9, pp. 5097-6002. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a 66 year-old patient is presented, who had intense pain in the right foot, after a trauma, and after observing a change of colour in the great toe of the same foot, reason why he was admitted for better study and treatment. Revascularization of the affected extremity was carried out and Heberprot-P® was used as therapeutic complement (12 applications). The pain disappeared totally and the index ankle - arm of the affected inferior member reached normal values. The aged patient was discharged after 10 days of revascularization and at the third week of applying the product a productive granulation tissue had been achieved. There were neither adverse reactions to the medication, nor local infection, so that the foot was completely functional.

Palabras clave : elderly; peripheral arterial disease; revascularization; Heberprot-P®; secondary health care..
