By: Mölnlycke Health Care, December 19 2011Posted in: Diabetic foot ulcer

Although the evidence to date is limited, the use of advanced therapies, even though initially more expensive, may be justified for patients with hard to- heal DFUs. In the long term, from
a cost-effective and efficacy perspective, when both the direct and indirect costs incurred over the patient’s treatment lifetime are taken into account, the more expensive therapies appear more successful.
