In addition to our theme of laser Doppler demonstrations with the ArtAssist® device, we will also be giving out information about how ArtAssist® therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
Take, for example, a case report from Dr. Darwin Eton and Dr. Hong Yu (both from the University of Chicago). They combined intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) therapy (with the ArtAssist® device) with specific doses of a growth factor called granulocyte-colony stimulation factor (G-CSF…and what a mouthful!).
Though the two patients were of different genders and ages and had different conditions, the combination of IPC and G-CSF worked to heal both of their limbs within a year.
Patient 1’s lower extremity necrosis was healed after 5 months of adjunct therapy and Patient 2’s dorsal ankle ulcer and exposed Achilles’ tendon was healed after one year.

And again, if you’re going to Desert Foot next week, we hope to see you there!
