  • Patent number: 11058771
    Abstract: A patch for treating vascular ulcers caused by excessive enzymatic activity may include a substrate configured to span a vascular ulcer as well as a linking material that is disposed relative to the substrate and has an affinity for an enzyme involved in causing the vascular ulcer. A magnetic material may be coupled to the linking material. In some cases, the enzymes involved in causing the vascular ulcer may become coupled to the linking material and thus become coupled to the magnetic material so that that the enzymes can be removed by applying a magnetic field in the proximity of the vascular ulcer. The enzymes may include matrix metalloproteinases.
