According to Mary Brennan, RN, CWOCN, Clinical Nurse Specialist for Wounds at North Shore, "MEDIHONEY helped to turn this wound around for him and allowed us back on track for healing. We had used other therapies, but this was the product that made the difference in a very short time."

There are over 50,000 LEAs each year in the United States alone. The 3-year mortality rate post-LEA is estimated to be around 50%.
