A new proprietary negative pressure wound device has been developed to apply negative pressure therapy to closed wounds (Closed-NPWT). We postulated that Closed-NPWT management of contaminated and dirty wounds would lead to faster wound healing and no significant difference in wound complications.
Optimal wound healing with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) relies on a properly sealed vacuum system. Anatomically difficult wounds impair the adhesive dressing, which results in air leaks that disrupt the integrity of the NPWT system and hinder wound healing.
Recently, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a rising technology to improve wound healing. In clinical application, it benefits fast debridement and wound close, limits infection, and promotes wound healing. It is an effective therapy for all kinds of acute or chronic wound. Currently, researches demonstrate that NPWT promotes angiogenesis, granulation tissue growth, and extracellular matrix remodeling through regulating the signaling of anti-inflammatory cytokines, mechanicalreceptor and chemorecept...
A remote therapy monitoring (RTM) system has been developed for use with a negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) unit for patients in the home care setting. In conjunction with RTM, a network of trained professionals call patients when their NPWT usage is low and provide education to assist with therapy adherence.
Our group has reported that negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) decreases tissue oxygenation by 84% in the foot of diabetic patients because the pad of the connecting drainage tube and foam sponge of the NPWT system compress the wound bed. The purpose of this study was to determine whether an NPWT modified dressing application reduces tissue oxygenation in the feet of persons with diabetes mellitus.
To present results and complications in a case series of outpatients with diabetic and neuropathic foot ulcers with exposed bone following surgical debridement treated with negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT).
Diabetic foot ulcers are one of the most common complications of diabetes with high morbidity and mortality. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is one of the treatment modalities that facilitates the wound healing process; however, its molecular mechanism remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of action of NPWT in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers via measuring the tissue expression of genes related to the wound healing process. The study included 40 patients with di...
This study aims to conduct a cost-minimization analysis comparing wound treatment costs between single-use negative pressure wound therapy (sNPWT) and traditional negative pressure wound therapy (tNPWT).
Negative-pressure wound therapy has been widely adopted to reduce the complexity of treating a broad range of acute and chronic wounds. However, its cost is high. The objective of this study was to evaluate the following two different methods of negative-pressure wound therapy in terms of healing time: a low-cost method of negative-pressure wound therapy (a pressure stabilizer device connected to a hospital wall-vacuum system with a gauze-sealed dressing, USP) and the standard of care (vacuum-assisted closu...
Open upper limb injuries requiring soft reconstruction can pose a dilemma for trauma surgeons when considering the treatment options. The British Orthopaedic Association and British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons Standard for Trauma (BOAST) have addressed the management of severe open lower limb fractures with the creation of the BOAST 4 guidelines. However, no such gold standard exists for the treatment of open injuries of the upper limb. Furthermore, treatment of these injur...
Pretibial lacerations are a common cause of presentation to accident and emergency departments. The management of these wounds is contentious with a variation in practise between individual institutions. We present the case of a 49-year-old female with a background of pulmonary atresia and associated pulmonary hypertension, who underwent successful outpatient negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for three pretibial lacerations. We would propose that this therapy is an effective option for the management o...
We present our experience with five patients with CLTI treated with distal revascularization and omental flap coverage. We decided to investigate the efficacy and safety of NPWT (negative-pressure wound therapy) in promoting the fixation and remodeling of the omental flap as there is some evidence in the literature about the optimization of results for skin graft and dermal substitutes. Surgical revascularization was always the first procedure attempted; wound coverage was realized 3-5 days after the primar...
NPWT with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d), which combines NPWT with wound irrigation, has been clinically applied as a more effective treatment than conventional NPWT. Commercially available recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor (rh-bFGF) has been demonstrated to be beneficial for use over the wound beds. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of combined treatment with NPWTi-d and rh-bFGF. Six pigs received 12 full-thickness excisional skin wounds and were treated wi...
To summarize available studies on wound complication outcomes after prophylactic negative pressure wound therapy for obese women (body mass index 30 or greater).
The reverse sural adipofascial flap (RSAF) is used to reconstruct challenging wounds of the foot and ankle. It offers several advantages over the traditional reverse sural flap, including less venous congestion. To complete the reconstruction, split-thickness skin grafting (STSG) may be done immediately or in a delayed fashion; however, both scenarios result in suboptimal take rates and prolonged healing. An acellular dermal matrix (ADM; Integra; Ethicon Inc, Somerville, New Jersey) and negative-pressure wo...
Evaluation of inguinal vascular surgical scars treated with closed incisional negative pressure wound therapy using three-dimensional digital imaging - a randomized controlled trial on bilateral incisions.
Purpose of the investigation: Scar formation is an important, permanent surrogate marker for wound healing. The main aim of this randomized trial was to evaluate the effects of incisional negative pressure wound therapy (iNPWT) on scar formation in uncomplicated wound healing with 3-dimensional (3D) digital imaging.
A new reticulated open-cell foam dressing with through holes (ROCF-CC) has been introduced to assist with wound cleansing by removing thick wound exudate and infectious materials during neg- ative pressure wound therapy with instillation. Due to the limited published evidence supporting use of ROCF-CC dressings with negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d), clinicians have been relying on practical application experience to gain pro ciency with the dressing and NPWTi-d. To ...
An open abdomen complicated with small-bowel fistulae becomes a complex wound for local infection, systemic sepsis and persistent soiling irritation by intestinal content. While controlling the fistulae drainage, protecting surrounding skin, healing the wound maybe a challenge.
With a special focus on advanced wound healing (wound bed preparation, epithelialisation and hydration) and negative pressure wound therapy, the Hartmann LINK for Wound Healing Congress took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on 19 September. The event aimed to promote the latest advances in wound care and highlight the main challenges that clinicians face when treating different types of wounds. Annabel De Coster, editor of the British Journal of Community Nursing, gives an overview of selected talks from...
Calcinosis cutis (CC), or calcium deposition in soft tissue, can cause significant morbidity associated with arthralgias and ulceration. This condition has an elusive pathophysiology and is often associated with autoimmune disorders, significantly impacting the disease burden. The clinical presentation of CC varies, and there is no gold standard treatment modality. The case of a 50-year-old woman with scleroderma and a rare presentation of milky drainage of a left hip ulcer secondary to underlying CC that w...
Obtaining or purchasing marijuana in the U.S. can be done only in certain states via a lawful market, for medical or non-medical (recreational) purposes, or via an unlawful market ("black market") by home cultivation and unlicensed vendors and individuals. Given the evolving U.S. state marijuana legislation landscape, the objective of this study is to describe individuals who report buying marijuana in the past year by selected characteristics and U.S. geographical location.
