Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a novel tool to reduce surgical site infections (SSIs). Although SSIs are a common source of morbidity in infants undergoing laparotomy, the cost of the available NPWT devices has restricted its use to adult high-risk patients. We developed a low-cost method of NPWT in infants and analyzed its impact on the incidence of SSIs in infant patients.
While negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been used for decades, there is a paucity of data regarding the appropriate length of time between dressing changes.
In neonatal surgical patients requiring an enterostomy, there is no definitive recommendation regarding the ideal enterostomy location: at the edge of the primary incision or at a different incision.
Wound infections following adult spinal deformity surgery place a high toll on patients, providers, and the healthcare system. Staphylococcus aureus is a common cause of postoperative wound infections, and nasal colonization by this organism may be an important factor development of surgical site infections (SSI's). The aim is to investigate whether post-operative surgical site infections after elective spine surgery occur at a higher rate in patients with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) ...
Whether the choice of antibiotic prophylaxis, the type of incision, or the use of wound protectors decreases surgical site infections (SSIs) in patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy (PD) remains unknown.
Treatment and prevention of wound infection continues to be a challenging issue in clinical settings of Nepal especially in the context of globally growing problem of antimicrobial resistance. Study on opportunistic pathogens and sensitivity to commonly prescribed local antimicrobial agents are cardinal to reduce the disease burden of wound infections. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of methicillin resistant (MRSA) and extended spectrum β-lact...
Nutritional status has become increasingly important in optimizing surgical outcomes and preventing postoperative infection and wound complications. However, currently, there is a paucity in the orthopaedics literature investigating the relationship between nutritional status and wound complications following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of (1) postoperative infections, (2) wound complications, (3) concomitant infection with wound (CoIW)...
For patients at high risk, such as those with lower-gastrointestinal perforations, it is important to establish a preventive method that reduces the incidence of surgical site infections (SSIs) significantly. We applied negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) as part of a delayed primary closure approach to prevent SSIs. This study evaluated the value of this technique.
According to the Research Group for Primary Medical Care (PMV), approximately 890,000 people in Germany were suffering from a chronic wound in 2012. This corresponds to a prevalence of 1.1%. Ulcus cruris, diabetic ulcers and decubital ulcers are among the most frequent causes of chronic wounds (57-80%). The guarantee for successful wound care is based on a good understanding of the physiology of the wound healing process. A disorder of the phase-like course can lead to complications, delays or suspensi...
To analyze the effects of a surgical protocol for infections, nonhealing wound prophylaxis, and analgesia among patients who underwent posterior spinal fusion at a single tertiary care neurosurgical center.
Wound assessment is an essential part of wound management and has traditionally focused on the wound bed. The Triangle of Wound Assessment (Triangle) is a new assessment tool that includes a holistic evaluation of the patient with a wound. The aim of this pilot study was to describe the use of the Triangle in our clinical practice in Spain.
Vascular surgery in the groin is highly susceptible to wound infection (up to about 30%). Wound infections associated with exposed vascular prosthetic grafts are difficult to treat and may lead to acute bleeding or graft failure, requiring amputation of the lower limb in extreme cases. Negative pressure wound therapy is a method to promote wound healing in case of infected vascular grafts. Since there is suspected risk of bleeding, this technique has been adapted with a double-sponge technique in combinatio...
Postoperative wound infections are the infections of the operating site within thirty days after surgery. The infections that develop after surgery are a major problem throughout the world leading to, increased morbidity and mortality. This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of bacterial pathogens causing wound infection in the surgical wards and to determine the antimicrobial sensitivity patterns of the isolated bacteria. A total of 250 wound samples were collected over a period of 6 months ...
The ultimate tensile strength of newly apposed tissue is the sum of the strength of the physical construct holding the tissues and the strength of biologic healing. For successful incisional hernia repair, the total strength of the repair must remain greater than the forces applied. While much work has been done to understand the science of wound healing-the ability of an open defect to contract and close-far less has been done to understand the healing of 2 newly approximated previously nonwounded surfaces...
Immune compromised as well as critically ill patients are at higher risk of surgical wound infection and dehiscence. Wound infections critically influence the outcomes after liver transplantation. In particular, it was shown that they significantly reduce the overall survival rate when compared to patients with uneventful wound healing, and their occurrence is associated with death or graft loss within 1-year post-transplantation. From January 2001 through December 2017, 763 patients underwent liver transpl...
The loss of Achilles tendon results in reduced plantar flexion strength; however, in patients who are not fit for major reconstructive surgery, with soft-tissue defects overlying the tendon, Achilles tendon excision is a useful adjunct procedure for wound closure. We report 3 patients with infections around the Achilles tendons needing debridement procedures who underwent Achilles tendon excision for the purpose of wound closure. Local healing was achieved in all patients; all returned to their premorbid am...
Wound dressings with long-term antimicrobial activity are highly desired for treatment of chronic wound infections. Herein, the sustained antimicrobial wound dressings were developed by using antibiotic agents, ciprofloxacin HCL (CIP) and gentamicin sulfate (GS), covalent bonding to natural polymer matrix composites, carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC) and collagen (COL). By amide bond formation between antibiotic agents and polymer chains, two antimicrobial wound dressings CMC-COL-CIP and CMC-COL-GS were prepared...
Open abdomen is a concept that was developed especially in relation to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS).
While there are various techniques to create the gastrojejunostomy during a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), many surgeons prefer using a circular stapler. One drawback of this method, however, is the higher incidence of surgical site infections (SSIs). To investigate the effect of a dual ring wound protector on SSIs during LRYGB.
The incidence of surgical site infections (SSIs) after breast cancer surgery is relatively high; ranging from 3 to 19%. The role of wound dressings in the prevention of SSI after breast cancer surgery is unclear. This study compares a silver carboxymethylcellulose dressing (AQUACEL Ag Surgical (Aquacel) with standard wound dressing in SSI rate after breast cancer surgery.
There are many factors that may affect the microenvironment of acute and chronic wounds. This article reviews the relationship between temperature factor in the external microenvironment of wound surface and wound healing. The temperature changes in different types and stages of wounds are closely related to the wound healing status. Therefore, wound temperature monitoring provides timely, reliable, and non-invasive method in the evaluation of wound status. As low temperature affects the physiological state...
This study seeks to evaluate the efficacy of negative pressure wound therapy for surgical-site infection (SSI) after open pancreaticoduodenectomy.
To compare the effectiveness in wound healing of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) versus a standard dressing in patients who underwent hip or knee revision surgery.
Sustained release liposomal bupivacaine (LB) is a new pain control option that can reduce opioid use after laparotomy, which is known to prolong ileus, length of stay.
Different types of multidisciplinary concepts for treating non-healing wounds have been developed. However, there is insufficient evidence on the quality of multidisciplinary wound centres, and a limited number of evaluation systems have so far been developed. The lack of an international wound centre evaluation/certification system is the basis for the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) Wound Centre Endorsement Project. The project aims to describe the minimum requirements for a wound management ...
