Abstract :

A female patient of 81 years, in good health condition, living on her own in a house suffered a stroke in 2001 and in 2010 she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (meningioma). Apart from occasional memory loss and short term nausea she had no difficulties and could take care of herself. Following a visit she paid to her relatives in December 2013 she suddenly lost consciousness, fell and was left lying on a stone floor until her relatives found her after two days. She developed an extensive pressure ulcer in the location between her shoulder blades and the occipital and parietal bone in the skull, accompanied by loss of hair, skin and subcutaneous tissue up to the bone in the area of 10�?�?12 cm. After two months of hospitalization at the Department of Neurology, her general condition has been stabilized, she communicates, but her mobility is limited. The pressure ulcer between her shoulder blades heals quite effectively, the manifestations on the cranium are stagnant, the pressure ulcer shows callous margins and the bone is colored dark brown to black. Since March 2014 the therapy included gel preparations and we also have commenced stem cell therapy with a very good effect in October 2015; an extensive pressure ulcer is completed healing.
