Scientific and clinical data support the effect of 3C Patch® in wound management, compared to standard of care.

The results of a multinational, multicentre randomized clinical trial published in Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology 2018 served as the basis for CMS reimbursement.
The International Working Group on Diabetic Foot recommends 3C Patch® as adjunctive therapy for hard-to-heal diabetic foot ulcers.

Effective April 13, 2021, Medicare covers the 3C Patch for the treatment of chronic non-healing diabetic wounds for 20 weeks.

The 3C Patch® System is a single use medical device used to prepare an autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) gel from the patient’s peripheral blood by centrifugation, without any reagents.  Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, the PRP gel produced by the 3C Patch® System is topically applied for the management of exuding cutaneous wounds, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, and diabetic ulcers and mechanically or surgically-debrided wounds.  See 510(k) Summary – BK200471 (accessed Sept. 17, 2021), available at https://www.fda.gov/media/104546/download.
