Wound Care Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce that the DermaClose Continuous External Tissue Expander is now available at The University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital (UAB) and its centers.

After a thorough review of the clinical benefits and cost effectiveness of DermaClose, UAB decided that using DermaClose would be both highly beneficial to their patients undergoing surgery for large wounds and would also further their mission of providing world-class care while maintaining their status as a major center for clinical research.
