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...

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester promotes wound healing of mice pressure ulcers affecting NF-κB and NOS2 and NRF2 expression.

In pressure ulcers, the synthesis of reactive oxygen species induced by ischemia and reperfusion leads to chronic inflammation and tissue damage, which impair the closure of these lesions. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), found in propolis, promotes cutaneous wound healing of acute lesions and severe burns. However, the effects of CAPE on wound healing of pressure ulcers have not been investigated. This study investigated the effects of CAPE administration in a murine model of pressure ulcers.

Onset of action of sacral neuromodulation in lower urinary tract dysfunction what is the optimal duration of test stimulation?

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.

Local warming therapy for treating chronic wounds: A systematic review.

Several studies suggest that local warming therapy (LWT) may help to treat chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers.

Barriers and facilitators to preventing pressure ulcers in nursing home residents: A qualitative analysis informed by the Theoretical Domains Framework.

Pressure ulcers are areas of localised damage to the skin and underlying tissue; and can cause pain, immobility, and delay recovery, impacting on health-related quality of life. The individuals who are most at risk of developing a pressure ulcer are those who are seriously ill, elderly, have impaired mobility and/or poor nutrition; thus, many nursing home residents are at risk.

An exploratory study on differences in cumulative plantar tissue stress between healing and non-healing plantar neuropathic diabetic foot ulcers.

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.
