Background: Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) is a concentration of second generation autologous growth factors compared to platelet rich plasma (PRP) and represents a multifactorial stimulation system that can be used for the management and treatment of chronic skin ulcers. Aim: The aim of this work is to evaluate the additional benefits of the CGF compared to the standard of dressing and its effects on the dynamics of the healing process. Methods: Autologous CGFs were obtained from 100 patients with chronic mixed ulcers (venous ulcers in patients with II stage claudication) of the lower limbs in a multicentric controlled randomized study. Results: The results showed a significant advantage in the use of CGF in association with cleansing and selec- tive compression in the healing time and stabilization of mixed ulcers of the lower extremities. Conclusions: These results support the CGF’s clinical use for improving clinical outcomes in mixed ulcers of the legs.

Abstract

Background: Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) is a concentration of second generation autologous growth factors compared to platelet rich plasma (PRP) and represents a multifactorial stimulation system that can be used for the management and treatment of chronic skin ulcers. Aim: The aim of this work is to evaluate the additional benefits of the CGF compared to the standard of dressing and its effects on the dynamics of the healing process. Methods: Autologous CGFs were obtained from 100 patients with chronic mixed ulcers (venous ulcers in patients with II stage claudication) of the lower limbs in a multicentric controlled randomized study. Results: The results showed a significant advantage in the use of CGF in association with cleansing and selec- tive compression in the healing time and stabilization of mixed ulcers of the lower extremities. Conclusions: These results support the CGF’s clinical use for improving clinical outcomes in mixed ulcers of the legs.
