There were fewer total adverse events (AEs) (24 CPM vs. 52 SWC) and index wound-related infections (5 CPM vs. 12 SWC) during the CPM application compared with the number of AEs for the same patients during the SWC treatment in the blinded phase of the trial.Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: These results corroborate the benefits of this CPM combined with SWC over SWC alone for chronic DFUs previously reported for the blinded randomized phase of the trial, which directly relate to lower health care costs.
