Experimental: Bone marrow stem cells
Bone marrow was obtained by posterosuperior iliac crest aspiration under topical anesthesia. Mononuclear cells were isolated by Ficoll density gradient and will be resuspended in heparinized isotonic saline for infusion into the wound.
Procedure: Infusion of autologous bone marrow stem cells after wound debridement.
Cleaning of the wound with heparinized saline, cell infusion and closing with suture.
- Absence of adverse effects during timeframe as infections or complications related with the intervention. [ Time Frame: Six months ]The proposed trial will involve the recruitment of a total of 30 patients. The cells will be collected via bone marrow sampling. The aspirate will centrifuged on a Ficoll density gradient to isolate mononuclear cells, wich will be resuspended in heparinized isotonic saline for infusion into the area of the wound. Assessment of adverse events will be by wound examination and laboratory (microbiological)parameters
- Improvement and closure of the pressure ulcer [ Time Frame: One year ]The closure of the ulcer will be assessed by NMR and physical examination
