Clinical trials that follow venous ulcers to complete healing can be costly because of the prolonged healing time involved. Initial healing rates in venous ulcers are calculated by 2 methods, which are based on a metric using wound area and perimeter. It has been proposed that these rates allow the prediction of complete healing and that they may be useful as surrogate end points for clinical trials. The objective of this study was to compare the 2 proposed methods for calculating initial… CONTINUE READING
