Decoding the Data: Understanding the Impact of Study Bias in the Clinical Evaluation of Skin Substitutes in Chronic Wounds
This session will assess the differences in the quality of clinical trials on the use of skin substitutes in chronic wounds, specifically focusing on the importance of identifying inherent bias in clinical study design in the age of evidence-based medicine. This symposium will also include an overview of the recent Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ) 2020 Technical Assessment on Skin Substitutes document, a brief review of the MiMedx clinical studies that were evaluated in the ARHQ document and identified as low risk-of-bias, randomized controlled trials. The session will be presented by Professor Francis Game and Dr. William Tettelbach.
Virtual Booth Presentations
The Company will highlight EpiCord Expandable, a new addition to the MiMedx portfolio, as the first and only expandable allograft derived from the umbilical cord. The allograft can expand to twice its size, conforming to uneven surfaces and deep wounds, and is thick enough to allow for suturing as needed to keep the graft in place. Featured speaker Dr. Anthony Iorio will present his clinical experience with EpiCord Expandable through a series of cases, focusing on hard-to-heal diabetic foot ulcers, and discuss the benefits of having an expandable umbilical cord allograft for the economical treatment of various sized wounds. Additionally, Michelle Massee, Associate Vice President of Research at MiMedx, will present a session on the design, development and composition of this novel product.
