Healing Acute Wounds

There was a piece on the news last night about a man that had a rare infection in his leg that was not healing and it was cured with the use of Medihoney. He happened to have a kidney transplant as does my mother-in-law. She had had a lengthy hospital stay and post recovery from a leg infection. I wonder if such a treatment might have helped her. It is also used for burn treatment.
THIS IS NOT REGULAR HONEY but a special medical care product.
Here is one article about it:

Some additional information passed on by Katherine Young -

"The other major advance in wound healing, besides hyperbaric chambers, is a vacuum pump device that puts continuous negative pressure on the wound, resulting in continuous draining, revascularization and rapid healing. I know someone for whom the vacuum pump has been absolutely remarkable and her difficult infected wound is going to be healed, without the need for a skin graft. "
