The Antiseptic Efficacy and Tolerability of LavaseptÂ® 0.04% on Acute Traumatic Wounds
The primary objective of the study is to assess the antiseptic efficacy of Lavasept 0.04% when used as an antiseptic agent and to compare these with Ringers' solution in patients with acute traumatic wounds.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Head Injuries, Penetrating
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Saline Solution, Hypertonic
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
Penetrating wounds caused by a pointed object.
Wounds caused by objects penetrating the skin.
The pressure required to prevent the passage of solvent through a semipermeable membrane that separates a pure solvent from a solution of the solvent and solute or that separates different concentrations of a solution. It is proportional to the osmolality of the solution.
Determine effectiveness of various antimicrobial solutions on burn wounds (infections, wound healing, length of hospital stay).
The purpose of this trial is to investigate whether irrigation solution (soap vs. saline solution), or irrigation pressure (high vs. low) will decrease the rate of infection among patients...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of Polyheal-1 compared to Saline in the treatment of recalcitrant wounds including venous, post-operative and post-traumatic chro...
Patients who present to a wound care center for management of their wounds will be evaluated clinically to establish if their wounds are chronic or acute. These patients will undergo stan...
The investigators have developed a new non-invasive medical device called the Bioelectric Field Imager. They plan to use this device to measure the electric field near small lancet wounds...
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been shown to have several biological effects that favor the healing process, and nicotine has been shown to delay the healing process. In this study we investigated...
Oxygen-based therapies have proven effective in treating chronic and difficult-to-heal skin wounds, but the current therapeutic approaches suffer from major limitations and they do not allow for conti...
Non healing wounds present a significant social and economic burden. Chronic non healing wounds are estimated to affect as many as 1-2% of individuals during their lifetime, and account for billions o...
PURPOSE: Evolving soft tissue necrosis and/or edema can complicate microsurgical reconstruction by leading to open wounds with exposure of critical structures: anastamosed vessels, nerves, and tendons...
BACKGROUND: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to treat various wound types. However, the possible beneficial and harmful effects of HBOT for acute wounds are unclear. METHODS: We undertook a sy...
