Case Study: Squamous cell carcinoma

Case Study Overview

Patient history and initial assessment

A 84-year-old male presented with non healing wound post-excision of squamous cell carcinoma to the scalp.

The wound was 100% over-granulated and had been present for over a year.

Previous treatments had included various primary and secondary dressing without success.

Results

The introduction of MaxioCel as a primary dressing with a biofilm treatment pathway lead to significant improvements. Within 2.5 weeks, the wound had markedly improved, with the patient and clinician expressing high satisfaction with the results.

The wound was almost healed after 6 weeks of MaxioCel treatment leading to its consideration to the specialist formulary due to its effectiveness and potential health economic benefits.

The patient, who lived alone was independent in activities of daily living. Treatment goals were achieved, with MaxioCel’s ease of use and effectiveness being particularly noted.
