Chitosan is biopolymer with promising properties in wound healing. Chronic wounds represent a significant burden to both the patient and the medical system. Among chronic wounds, pressure ulcers are one of the most common types of complex wound. The efficacy and the tolerability of chitosan gel formulation, prepared into the hospital pharmacy, in the treatment of pressure ulcers of moderate severity were evaluated. The endpoint of this phase II study was the reduction of the area of the lesion by at least 2...
Pressure ulcers, also known as pressure injuries and bed sores, are localised areas of injury to the skin or underlying tissues, or both. Dressings made from a variety of materials, including foam, are used to treat pressure ulcers. An evidence-based overview of dressings for pressure ulcers is needed to enable informed decision-making on dressing use. This review is part of a suite of Cochrane Reviews investigating the use of dressings in the treatment of pressure ulcers. Each review will focus on a partic...
The risk of pressure ulcers in beneficiaries of long-term care insurance is expected to increase in South Korea's aging society. However, those who stay at home may not be managed appropriately with regard to pressure ulcer development. Here, we examined the relationship between home-visit nursing services and hospitalization related to pressure ulcers among beneficiaries with pressure ulcers in home-care settings.
Accumulative evidence has shown that miR-885-3p plays a crucial role in human carcinogenesis. From miRNA database, we also found that rs739837 polymorphism in miR-885-3p binding site within 3'-untranslated region of Vitamin D receptor (VDR), compromising the suppressive effect of miR-885-3p on VDR. Moreover, Vitamin D is involved in controlling the cell immune response and may play a role in pressure ulcers development. However, whether this polymorphism is actually linked with pressure ulcers remains uncle...
The surgical management of pressure ulcers in the paraplegic or quadriplegic population is marked by the high risk of recurrence in the long-term. In the current era of perforator flaps, newer reconstructive options are available for the management of pressure ulcers, decreasing the need to use the classically described muscular or musculocutaneous locoregional flaps. The coverage of ischial sores described in this article by a pedicled flap based on a deep femoral artery perforator, appears to be an effect...
Pressure ulcers are considered as indicators of the quality of care. The aim of this study was to provide a systematic review of the incidence and prevalence of pressure ulcers in Germany between 2010 and 2015.
Owing to the number and severity of concomitant factors, pressure ulcers remain a significant problem. A retrospective study of data from adult patients with a pressure ulcer was conducted to identify factors that may affect their healing. Data from patients who were hospitalized between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2015, in a private Turkish university hospital who had a Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, or unstageable pressure ulcer that was assessed using the Bates-Jensen Wound Assessment Tool (BWAT) were ...
Patients suffering from pressure ulcers remain to be a challenging task for nursing staff and doctors in the daily clinical management, putting - notably in the case of recurrences - additional strain on the constantly reduced resources in public health care. We aimed to assess the risk factors for the recurrence of pressure ulcers at our institution, a tertiary referral center.
Pressure ulcers (PrUs)* are chronic wounds caused by a combination of factors, such as repetitive ischemia perfusion injury, bacterial colonization of the wound bed, local tissue hypoxia, or an altered cellular and systemic stress response. The objectives of this study were to analyze fragments of devitalized tissue of Stages III and IV PrUs and compare them with healthy tissue to evaluate the expression of the genes involved in wound inflammation. Samples of healthy skin from patients undergoing plastic su...
Since the development of sacral neuromodulation (SNM) a large number of patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) have been treated with SNM. A test stimulation is performed prior to implantation. In centres worldwide the duration of this test stimulation varies considerably since it is not certain when the onset of the therapy effect can be expected. The objective of this prospective study is to evaluate the average onset time of SNM in patients with LUTS.
Pressure ulcers represent a major current health problem and cause an important economic impact on the health care system. Most studies on the prevention of pressure ulcers have been carried out in hospital contexts, with respect to the use of hyperoxygenated fatty acids, and to date no studies have specifically examined the use of olive oil-based treatments.
Mechanical stress is important in causing and healing plantar diabetic foot ulcers, but almost always studied as peak pressure only. Measuring cumulative plantar tissue stress combines plantar pressure and ambulatory activity, and better defines the load on ulcers. Our aim was to explore differences in cumulative plantar tissue stress between people with healing and non-healing plantar diabetic foot ulcers.
The treatment of sacral fractures has evolved since its first description in 1982. Several techniques for sacral augmentation have been developed since 2001, and the rate of improvement is rapid with over 50% reduction in pain achieved prior to post-procedure discharge of the patient. Pain reduction occurs primarily within the first 3 months and is sustained at 12 months; however, the long-term outcomes have not previously been studied.
Acute hypertensive response is a common systemic response to occurrence of intracerebral hemorrhage which has gained unique prominence due to high prevalence and association with hematoma expansion and increased mortality. Presumably, the higher systemic blood pressure predisposes to continued intraparenchymal hemorrhage by transmission of higher pressure to the damaged small arteries and may interact with hemostatic and inflammatory pathways. Therefore, intensive reduction of systolic blood pressure has be...
The aim of this study was to assess and compare the efficacy of high-voltage electrical stimulation (HVES) with ultrasound (US) in treating Stage II through Stage IV pressure ulcers (PrUs)* of hospitalized patients.
Although the occurrence of pressure ulcers (PUs) is now considered as an indicator of poor quality nursing care, questions and concerns remain regarding situations where PUs were unavoidable, irrespective of the care provided. The aim of this study was to explore Greek nurses' perceptions about the barriers involved and to identify the factors that influence care planning in PU treatment.
The aim of this study was to uncover efforts made by healthcare professionals to prevent pressure ulcers (PUs) in patients with severe brain injury undergoing treatment at a sub-acute rehabilitation department.
A retrospective cohort study was performed in order to evaluate the prevalence of pressure ulcers (PrUs) in older patients admitted to a geriatric rehabilitation unit of a postacute care hospital and to investigate the impact of the presence of PrUs on clinical outcomes of the rehabilitation process.
The clinical significance of measuring central arterial blood pressure has been recently discussed. Although the postprandial reduction in blood pressure is well known, postprandial changes in central blood pressure have not been intensively studied. The present study investigated differences in the reduction of central and peripheral arterial blood pressure after administration of an oral glucose load.An oral glucose tolerance test (75 g) was performed in 360 participants in our physical checkup program....
Many types of flaps are available if surgical reconstruction of a pressure ulcer is indicated, including a gluteus maximus flap, V-Y advancement flap, and superior gluteal artery perforator flap. Regional flap failure can complicate treatment, requiring additional flap surgery. An 80-year old woman with a 2-year history of being unconscious following a cerebrovascular accident presented with a Stage 4 sacral pressure ulcer of 2 months' duration with eschar and abscess formation. Because the wound measured 1...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness and value of prophylactic 5-layer foam sacral dressings to prevent hospital-acquired pressure injury rates in acute care settings.
A middle rectal artery arising from the lateral sacral artery (MRAls) in the right pelvis of a 99-year-old male was observed. Although variations of the origin of the middle rectal artery have been reported on many occasions, there are few descriptions of the trajectory in the literature. In our case, the MRAls branched from the lateral sacral artery on the sacral surface close to the third sacral sympathetic ganglion and immediately penetrated the third sacral splanchnic nerve and the parasympathetic pelvi...
Although it is well established that heavy alcohol consumption increases the risk of hypertension, little is known about the effect of a reduction of alcohol intake on blood pressure. We aimed to assess the effect of a reduction in alcohol consumption on change in blood pressure stratified by initial amount of alcohol consumption and sex in adults.
Debridement is essential for the optimal care of venous leg ulcers. Several debridement methods with different limitations may be deployed. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used for several dermatological purposes. Its application as a chemical debridement method for leg ulcers has never been explored. We designed a prospective study to determine the role of 80% TCA solution as a chemical debridement method for leg ulcers, regarding efficacy and procedure-associated pain. Chronic venous leg ulcers were treated...
Trans-sacral epiduroscopic laser decompression (SELD) is reported to have strong positive short-term effects in controlling lower back pain (LBP) or radicular leg pain following herniated lumbar disc (HLD). However, little is known about the possible complications following SELD.
