Healthcare Resource Utilization of Stage 3 & Stage 4 Pressure Ulcer (PU) and Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) Patients Treated Early with Clostridial Collagenase Ointment (CCO)
Early use of Collagenase SANTYL Ointment 250 units/g (0-30 days from Dx) lowers wound care specific costs by $9,240 over 1 year for Stage 3 and 4 PUs and $2,755 for DFUs compared to Santyl started later (days 31-90).  Additionally, early use of SANTYL results in less SANTYL use and therefore less spend on SANTYL.  The early use of SANTYLcan help a facility or payer reduce its SANTYL spend if it’s used earlier in the wound episode and if it’s not delayed as a step edit or through dose limits.

The Incremental Cost of Surgical Site Complications & Infections Across Multiple Surgical Indications
Mean incremental cost of SSI across all indications was $14,945.21; an increase of 84%. SSI added on average 6.1 days to patients length of stay. Non SSI complications also had significant implications, incurring incremental cost of $7,558.76 and increasing length of stay by 2.8 days. 34.4% of patients suffering post-surgical complications had a subsequent hospital stay within 90 days of discharge.
Poster #R06


Collagenase SANTYL Ointment 250 units/gram is indicated for debriding chronic dermal ulcers and severely burned areas. Occasional slight transient erythema has been noted in surrounding tissue when applied outside the wound. One case of systemic hypersensitivity has been reported after 1 year of treatment with collagenase and cortisone. Use of Collagenase SANTYL Ointment should be terminated when debridement is complete and granulation tissue is well established. See complete prescribing information for more details.
