This study has several limitations, including small sample size and a short study period. Although UTSG secretes growth factor, this investigation did not measure the actual values via immunohistochemistry; however, it should be considered in future research regarding UTSG. Additionally, it lacks matching of confounding factors that might alter the healing process, such as nutrition, smoking, alcohol consumption history, personal hygiene, physical activity, neuropathy, and PVD.
