Background: Chronic non-healing ulcers (NHUs) are often associated with some underlying pathology which prevents timely healing thus increasing the patients morbidity and healthcare expenses. Autologous non-cultured non-trypsinized keratinocyte and melanocyte grafting also known as Jodhpur technique (JT), an epidermal graft and autologous platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) are newer modalities with promising results. Aims: To compare the efficacy and safety of JT and autologous PRFM in the treatment of chronic NHU. Design: A prospective hospital based interventional study conducted on 50 patients of chronic NHU attending the dermatology outdoor of a tertiary level government hospital. Materials and Methods: After taking clearance from the institutional ethical committee, the patients were enrolled into 2 groups of 25 each. JT was done on group A and autologous PRFM on group B and their efficacy and safety compared. Statistical Analysis: Chi square test was used to analyze categorical variables summarized as number and percentage while continuous variables were analyzed using student t-test for intergroup comparison. Results: In Group A, the mean time to ulcer healing was 6.17 ± 2.17 weeks while 6.43 ± 2.33 weeks in Group B. No side effects were found in either group. Conclusion: Both the techniques fair equally in terms of wound healing time and safety but required multiple sittings in group B and a single session in group A.
