There is a pressing need for improved preclinical model systems in which to study human skin wound healing. Here, we report the development and application of a serum-free full thickness human skin wo...
Skin wound healing is a complex and dynamic biological process that involves many different cell types, the extracellular matrix, and mediators, such as neuropeptides, growth factors, and cytokines. S...
Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels that occurs by two distinct processes following sprouting angiogenesis (SA) and intussusceptive angiogenesis (IA). Nitric oxide (NO) is known for its...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is known to improve wound healing in the setting of chronic, nonhealing wounds of irradiated skin; however, failure of wound healing may still occur. Dehydrated human amnion/...
The use of intrinsically conducting polymers (CPs) in wound care and skin tissue engineering presents a novel opportunity for accelerated wound healing, enhanced antibacterial activity and the potenti...
Split thickness skin grafting is the normal standard of care for wound closure. However, this is an invasive procedure and associated with pain also there can be additional donor site morb...
The use of topical beta-blockers, such as 0.1% timolol, in promoting wound healing is currently emerging in the academic literature. The investigators will enroll 72 patients who have thei...
The investigators objective is to compare OASIS wound matrix with other commonly used dressings available for the donor site in split thickness skin grafting in order to determine which dr...
The use of topical beta-blockers, such as 0.25% timolol, in promoting wound healing is currently emerging in the academic literature. The investigators will enroll 82 patients who have the...
The purpose of this study is to see if treating a donor site wound with the ACell dressing is as good as or better than the dressings we currently treat harvested donor sites with. This wi...
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.
A heterogeneous group of autosomally inherited COLLAGEN DISEASES caused by defects in the synthesis or structure of FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN. There are numerous subtypes: classical, hypermobility, vascular, and others. Common clinical features include hyperextensible skin and joints, skin fragility and reduced wound healing capability.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
The grafting of skin in humans or animals from one site to another to replace a lost portion of the body surface skin.
Planning that has the goals of improving health, improving accessibility to health services, and promoting efficiency in the provision of services and resources on a comprehensive basis for a whole community. (From Facts on File Dictionary of Health Care Management, 1988, p299)
