To evaluate if cleansing, using a solution containing the antimicrobial polyhexanide and the surfactant betaine (polyhexanide propylbetaine [PP], Prontosan Solution, B. Braun), can aid effective wound bed preparation (WBP).

Management of diabetes-related foot ulcers often involves debridement of devitalized tissue, but evidence regarding the most effective debridement method is limited.
Deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) is a refractory complication after heart surgery, and debridement is the first-line treatment. The accurate identification of the extent of the infection is the key...
Effective wound healing depends on the adequate choice of the wound cleansing method, to enable rapid removal of necrotic tissue. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is an effective non-invasive te...
We evaluated the clinical potential of a novel robotic system for autonomous performance of waterjet wound debridement.
The influence of different irrigation solutions, in conjunction with wet-to-moist cleansing, on the reduction of sessile, non-planktonic bacteria which colonise wounds, has not been investigated. In t...
Wound healing after surgery is a complex procedure. Liquefaction of the fat and necrosis of inactivated tissue, as well as blood clots are always accumulated mostly within 24 hours after s...
Burns are common injuries in the daily life and wars. With the development of medical techniques, the mortality has been significantly reduced. However, the deformity and disability caused...
The UltraHeal Study is a randomized controlled trial to compare healing response of low frequency contact ultrasonic-assisted debridement in addition to best practice wound care to best pr...
High risk patients who receive direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty are more likely to experience wound complications. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the usag...
Bacterial load is frequently associated with impaired healing of chronic wounds. As well, sharp debridement is often associated with pain, causing patient distress, and thereby occasionall...
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
The commonest and least serious of the deep mycoses, characterized by nodular lesions of the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues. It is caused by inhalation of contaminated dust or by infection of a wound.
A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care. This concept includes implications of appropriate versus inappropriate therapy on the overall cost and clinical outcome of a particular disease. (From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)
Purifying or cleansing agents, usually salts of long-chain aliphatic bases or acids, that exert cleansing (oil-dissolving) and antimicrobial effects through a surface action that depends on possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties.
An acute, diffuse, and suppurative inflammation of loose connective tissue, particularly the deep subcutaneous tissues, and sometimes muscle, which is most commonly seen as a result of infection of a wound, ulcer, or other skin lesions.
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
