CARRASCO HERRERO, José María et al. Turning point: From risk or damage of skin integrity to tissue integrity. Gerokomos [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.3, pp.153-158. ISSN 1134-928X.

Vascular ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers present a health serious problem which affects a large number of patients, creating a major challenge for health professionals. Hyperoxygenated fatty acid dressings have proven to be effective thanks to their favorable action on the skin, increasing the microcirculation of the blood, promoting the renovation of the epidermic cells, and notably increasing cutaneous hydration. We evaluate the effectiveness of Mepentol® Leche, an emulsion based on Hyper-oxygenated fatty acids, Aloe barbadensis and Mimosa tenuiflora, used to treat the skin and alleviate symptoms in patients at risk or with vascular ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers. This study showed a turning point in applying this product systematically, avoiding skin dryness and reducing itching, stinging, pain and eczema while returning normal color to the skin.

Palabras clave : Vascular ulcers; diabetic foot; preventive skin treatment; hyperoxygenated fatty acids; Mepentol® Leche.
