Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), a micro-vascular complication, are associated with a substantial increase in morbidity and mortality. DFUs are a complicated mixture of neuropathy, peripheral arterial diseases, foot deformities, and infections. Foot infections are frequent and potentially devastating complications. Infection prospers in more than half of all foot ulcers and is the factor that most often leads to lower extremity amputation. The complications of microbial flora span the spectrum from superficial ...
To study the effectiveness of the inclusion of Cytoflavin in the management of postoperative delirium treating in elderly patients. Analyzed the results of treatment of 89 elderly patients (65-74 years) who, according to similar emergency indications, underwent surgery and postoperatively showed signs of delirium (according to the DDS scale ≥8 points). Depending on the treatment regimen, the patients were divided into three groups: in the first (n=32) group, bromodihydrochlorophenylbenzodiazepine was admi...
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is proven to be very successful for diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) treatment due to its antimicrobial effect, increased angiogenesis and enhanced collagen synthesis. The molecular mechanism underlying HBO therapy particularly the involvement of Nrf2 in the wound healing process was investigated in the present study. In addition, we have studied the levels of angiogenic markers in ulcer tissues and their correlation with Nrf2 during HBO therapy compared with standard therapy (Non-H...
Painful bone metastases cause reduced quality of life (QoL) in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Alpha-emitter 223Radium is associated with a clear survival benefit and significant bone pain palliation in CRPC patients with symptomatic bone metastases. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between pain relief and psychological distress during the time course of therapy in patients treated with 223Radium.
: To evaluate the effect of a self-management program on a population with both painful temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and parafunctional behaviors. : One hundred-seven participants enrolled in a program called Osteovox Self-Management Concept (OSMC). The primary outcome measure was the overall relief (OR) based on four pain and three functional limitation parameters. The secondary outcome measures concerned parafunctional behaviors, compliance with treatment, and several psychological and otological symp...
Mortality rates are decreasing in patients with diabetes. However, as this observation also concerns patients with diabetic foot ulcer (DFU), additional data are needed. For this reason, our study evaluated the 5-year mortality rate in patients with DFU during 2009-2010 and identified risk factors associated with mortality.
No study analysed the prevalence of white matter hyperintesities (WMHs) in subjects with diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) and their relationship with adipokine serum levels and indexes of endothelial and cognitive performance.
OBJECTIVECancer patients suffering from severe refractory pain may benefit from targeted ablative neurosurgical procedures aimed to disconnect pain pathways in the spinal cord or the brain. These patients often present with a plethora of medical problems requiring careful consideration before surgical interventions. The authors present their experience at an interdisciplinary clinic aimed to facilitate appropriate patient selection for neurosurgical procedures, and the outcome of these interventions.METHODS...
Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a major complication of both Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 Diabetes (T2D); however research into risk factors for DFU does not separate between these two types. The purpose of the present investigation was to identify risk factors for development of first time DFU (FTDFU) over a period of 15 years in patients with T1D and T2D separately.
This review investigated the current state of knowledge on negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) used to treat diabetic foot ulceration (DFU), its clinical effectiveness and any current issues in the research. NICE have recommended research into the clinical effectiveness of different dressing types for DFUs since 2015.
To demonstrate the affection of skull base by mucormycosis in an immunocompetent individual. Mucormycosis is an opportunistic infection principally seen in immunocompromised individuals, but recently being increasingly recognized in otherwise healthy individuals. Skull base involvement secondary to otogenic nidus, mimicking otitis media was rarely reported. A 34 year-old male, an otherwise healthy patient presented with facial nerve palsy followed by trismus, neck swelling and neck stiffness. Radical masto...
Modern dental treatment with standard screw-type implants leave some cases unaddressed in patients with extreme jaw bone resorption. Custom-made subperiosteal dental implant could be an alternative treatment modality to sinus lift, nerve lateralization or zygomatic implant techniques. Subperiosteal dental implants were utilized for many years to treat such patients. A combination of traditional subperiosteal implant designs with current advancements in 3D imaging, design and printing allow to reduces treatm...
Though one study supporting topically applied vancomycin has shown it to reduce the rate of deep infection in diabetic patients undergoing foot and ankle surgery, there is insufficient evidence to show benefits or to show any risks associated with the use of vancomycin powder during total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) or other foot and ankle procedures in a general population.
To describe the priorities of orthotists and physical therapists about quality measurement themes, and the feasibility and utility of collecting data from persons using custom AFOs that could inform quality measure development.
The paediatric flexible flatfoot constitutes the major cause of clinic visits for orthopaedic foot problems. It shows variations of deformities in different planes and locations of the foot and its indication for treatment have been extensively discussed. Despite its high prevalence there exists no classification of flatfeet during walking as a prerequisite for treatment decision. Therefore, the aim of this study is to classify flexible flatfeet based on 3D foot kinematics during walking.
A major challenge for treating diabetic foot ulcers is estimating the severity of ischemia, as currently used non-invasive diagnostic techniques provide relatively poor prognostic values. Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging (LSCI) is a promising non-invasive technique to assess microcirculation. Our aim was to investigate the stability and reproducibility of LSCI for the assessment of microcirculation in the diabetic foot, the relation of LSCI results to currently used non-invasive blood pressure measurements, a...
The control of foot trajectory during swing phase is important to achieve safe clearance with the ground. Complexity of a physiological control system arises from the interaction of structural units and regulatory feedback loops that operate to enable the organism to adapt to a non-static environment. Diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) impairs peripheral feedback inputs and alters ankle control during gait, which might affect toe clearance (ToC) parameters and its complexity, predisposing DPN-subjects to trippin...
Ulcers in diabetic neuropathic feet are quite common but should be differentiated from the distinctive but rare ulceration due to rat bite in these insensate feet. We describe and analyse the features of rat bites in 2 patients with diabetic neuropathic feet and highlight 8 clinical features that should raise suspicion and alert the clinician to this possibility.
Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication. During diabetic retinopathy development, the TLR4/NF-κB pathway is up-regulated. Apocynin is a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase blocker which can reduce the superoxide radicals. It is demonstrated that apocynin can inhibit TLR4/NF-κB pathway in rats. We aim to figure out whether apocynin treatment is benefit for the diabetic retinopathy in rat model. The diabetes in rats was induced by streptozotocin. The treatment of apocynin (16 mg/kg...
The optimal antibiotic treatment after foot/ankle fractures or fusion should be determined based on the result of culture. In the absence of culture results, administered antibiotics should include coverage against common pathogens such as .
Ingrown nails are a common and painful pathology not always responding to local treatment. Destroying the matrix by application of phenol (phenolisation) has proven its superiority over the so called classic surgical methods. This is partially due to the exceptional properties of phenol: demyelinisation of the terminal nerve fibres provides long-term pain relief, the coagulation of proteins stops bleeding and the molecule has antiseptic properties. Phenolisation requires only few resources and can be widely...
Impaired wound healing in the diabetic foot is a major problem often leading to amputation. Mast cells have been shown to regulate wound healing in diabetes. We developed an indole-carboxamide type mast cell stabilizer, MCS-01, which proved to be an effective mast cell degranulation inhibitor in vitro and can be delivered topically for prolonged periods through controlled release by specifically designed alginate bandages. In diabetic mice, both pre- and post-wounding, topical MCS-01 application accelerated...
Several studies support the effect of peripheral vascular disease (PVD) on wound healing and surgical site infection (SSI). Despite this, there have been no specific studies proving the beneficial effect of revascularization on SSI prior to operative intervention in the setting of traumatic or elective foot and ankle surgery. The majority of studies on revascularization are in the setting of diabetic foot infection or established ischemia. We recommend that in the presence of an inadequate vascularization i...
Recent studies demonstrate favorable diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) healing outcomes with the implementation of a multidisciplinary team. We aimed to describe the incidence of and risk factors associated with ulcer recurrence after initial complete healing among a cohort of patients with DFU treated in a multidisciplinary setting.
