    • Abstract:
      Delayed or palliative wounds affect a high number of patients, resulting in increased costs and decreased nursing time elsewhere. In this case study, an 87-year-old female patient was treated with a new wound healing product, after one year of unsuccessful treatment. K Two Start was used in the new treatment regime. After one week, the patient no longer felt constantly in pain, and after 16 weeks, the wound had healed. The cost for the unsuccessful year of treatment (£9077) is compared to the successful trial (£1329). A total saving of £7748 was estimated by the use of the new treatment regime.
