Venous Leg Ulceration (VLU) is a common pathology which affects patients at any age. Ulcers are characterized by long-term healing, pain and frequent recurrence despite adherence to standard of care resulting in time consuming and costly treatments. Here, the authors describe the case of a diabetic, 63 years old male suffering from venous insufficiency and presenting a distal leg ulcer. The ulcer was treated using GBT013 device, a new biocompatible and biodegradable tri-dimensional collagen based matrix. GBT013 seems to be well integrated to the healing tissues and well tolerated. No complication or pain was reported during treatment. Complete healing was obtained within 36 days with no recurrence to date despite a context of stasis dermatitis.
