Post Breakthrough in Wound Care in Armenia and Artsakh

YEREVANWound care remains a considerable medical and surgical concern in Armenia and the world. With the introduction of new technologies, it has evolved considerably during the past decade. At the initiative of Dr. Gevorg Yaghdjyan, an associate professor of plastic surgery at Yerevan State Medical University Heratsi Hospital, a wound care project was launched in April 2016. Its goal was to improve wound care in the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Nagorno-Karabagh (NKR/Artsakh) by identifying, acquiring, and distributing modern equipment, and improving the education of surgeons and other healthcare professionals at major medical institutions.

The implementation of the program required the collaboration of several organizations. Boston area physicians, Drs. Carolann Najarian andShahe Fereshetian, accepted a donation of modern V.A.C. VERAFLO and V.A.C. ULTA units from Acelity, which help in the treatment of wounds in the safest and most effective way. Christine Grogan of Acelity was instrumental in making the donation of 12 machines (valued at $717,344) happen. The Boston area Armenian-American Medical Association funded the project. The Armenia-Artsakh Fund organized the air delivery of the devices, and the Fund for Armenian Relief ensured their receipt in Yerevan and distribution in Armenia and Artsakh.

Acelity, an American company based in San Antonio, Texas, is a world leader in advanced wound care and regenerative medicine; it was created by uniting the strengths of three companies, Kinetic Concepts, Inc., LifeCell Corporation, and Systagenix Wound Management, Limited (formerly Johnson & Johnson). Acelity started as an operation in a one-bedroom apartment in San Antonio in 1976 by an emergency room physician who saw the value of kinetic therapy in dealing with spinal cord injuries, multiple trauma, and severe pulmonary condition. From 13 original employees, Acelity now employs 5,800. The company is committed to restoring peoples lives around the world, and is proud to have donated V.A.C. VERAFLO and V.A.C. ULTA therapies for the treatment of wound care in Armenia. Each year, Acelity donates millions of dollars and products to help heal people involved in the aftermath of global tragic disasters, including Haiti, Ecuador, San Bernardino, Paris, and Brussels, and the recent horrific attack in Orlando.
