    I have used Apligraf and a similar product, Dermagraf, on slow-healing diabetic ulcers. I recommend them both, as long as the vascular status of the patient supports healing, and pressure to the wound can be temporarily eliminated.
    The problem we find is that the graft must be ordered carefully. It is made to order, and it is very expensive. Nearly all cases around our area are done in hospital surgery centers or outpatient surgery centers, because most practitioners cannot afford to buy the material, risking unforseen complications or cancellations.
    I have used Apligraf for other wounds, as well. These include venous stasis ulcers, burn injuries, and a case of sickle cell ulcers which was unresponsive to HBO, traditional wound care, etc.
    How is your patient doing, Dr. Footwound??

    Hi :)
    Can someone tell me if Apligraf is in BNF? I am a first year Pod student and I can't find it in there ... but maybe I'm not looking properly?
    Thank you x
