Deep sternal wound infection is a dreaded complication of cardiac surgery with considerable consequences in terms of mortality, morbidity and treatment costs. Multiple specific measures in the prevention of deep sternal wound infection have been developed and evaluated in the past decades in addition to standard surgical site infection prevention guidelines. This review focuses on these specific measures to prevent deep sternal wound infection.
A groin wound associated with a vascular graft infection is associated with significant morbidity. Management of groin wounds is often challenging due to their anatomical location that renders them difficult to visualize and keep clean.
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)...
To assess whether negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) reduced complications such as wound infection, dehiscence, seroma/hematoma, skin necrosis/blistering, and bleeding compared with non-NPWT treatments.
Wound infection caused by multiantibiotic-resistant bacteria has become a serious problem, and more effective antibacterial agents are required. Herein, we report the preparation of wound dressings using the biocompatible chitosan (CS) as a reducing and stabilizing agent in the synthesis of 2-mercapto-1-methylimidazole (MMT)-capped gold nanocomposites (CS-Au@MMT), with efficient antibacterial effects. The synergistic effects of AuNPs, MMT, and CS led to the disruption of bacterial membranes. After blending ...
The 4th International Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention conference, hosted by the Journal of Wound Care and the University of Huddersfield, was held earlier this year in Las Vegas. A key theme was the impact of biofilm on wound healing. In the second of our sponsored symposia reports, the manner in which delayed healing can be reversed through effective biofilm management, and the introduction of regulatory proteins found in dehydrated human amnion chorion membrane allograft were explained.
Negative pressure wound therapy is becoming more commonly used to prevent wound complications in joint arthroplasty, although few studies have assessed its outcomes compared with those of a traditional dry sterile dressing. This retrospective study assessed complications that required return to the operating room in a cohort of patients who received a dry sterile dressing (n=159) vs negative pressure wound therapy (n=32). There were significantly more overall complications (P=.0293) in the dry sterile dress...
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.
Immunosuppressive state due to haematological malignancies and chemotherapy may cause disruption to wound healing despite optimum conventional treatment and standard wound dressing. Non-healing wounds are predisposed to infection whereas chemotherapy dose reductions or interruptions are associated with poor survival.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the aerial parts of Aeschynomene indica Linn. (AIL) have been used for wound healing, and to treat urinary tract infection, hepatitis, enteritis, dysentery, nyctalopia, conjunctivitis, urticaria, and furuncle. However, no scientific investigation has been conducted on its wound healing potential.
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...
The purpose of this study was to describe and compare factors that affect urinary tract infection (UTI) rates in people with spina bifida (SB) and neurogenic bladder dysfunction before and following initiation of intermittent catheterization (IC).
There remains a lack of understanding of how wound closure methods perform comparatively when exposed to patient-induced movement during healing and how they may contribute to bacterial infiltration in the wound site. The present study attempts to objectively quantify this gap. The study evaluates bacterial penetration and subsequent symptoms of infection of traditional sutures and an emerging tape-based, zip-type wound closure technology under physiologically relevant loading. In an in vivo model to simula...
Perineal wound infection (PWI) rates are high after abdominoperineal resection (APR) and total pelvic exenteration (TPE). This study identified risk factors for PWI after surgery for anorectal tumors and examined the relationship between the surgical excision volume with the PWI degree.
Resulting mostly from major injury or infection, severe acute wounds are often accompanied by septic shock or multiple organ failure and associated with high disability and mortality rates. In managing Chinese patients with wound-derived acute severe illnesses, salvage treatment in the emergency department has traditionally prioritized life support and protection of vital organs before wound repair.
The innate immune system is responsible for many important functions in the body including responding to infection, clearing cancerous cells, healing wounds, and removing foreign substances. Although many of these functions happen simultaneously in life, most laboratory studies of the innate immune response focus on one activity. How the innate immune system responds to concurrent insults in different parts of the body is not well understood. This study explores the impact of a lung infection on the cutaneo...
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...
Deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) is a refractory complication after heart surgery, and debridement is the first-line treatment. The accurate identification of the extent of the infection is the key to successful debridement. The present study assessed the diagnostic accuracy of fluorine-18 deoxyglucose (F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for identifying the infected area of DSWI.
Cost-effectiveness analysis of single use negative pressure wound therapy dressings (sNPWT) compared to standard of care in reducing surgical site complications (SSC) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.
There is a growing interest in using negative pressure wound therapy in closed surgical incision to prevent wound complications which continue to persist following surgery despite advances in infection measures.
In wound care management, the prevention of wound infection and the retention of an appropriate level of moisture are two major challenges. Therefore, designing an excellent antibacterial hydrogel with a suitable water-adsorbing capacity is very important to improve the development of wound dressings. In this paper, a novel silver nanoparticles/poly (gamma-glutamic acid) (γ-PGA) composite dressing was prepared for biomedical applications. The promoted wound-healing ability of the hydrogels were system...
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...
At the 4th International Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention conference, hosted by the Journal of Wound Care and the University of Huddersfield, in Las Vegas, one of the main themes was the control and resolution of biofilm. A series of reports will describe the key points of four sponsored symposia at the event. The first of these concentrates on the role of biofilm in chronic wounds and new therapies to aid the healing of these wounds by disrupting biofilm.
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.
Military operations place injured Servicemembers at high risk for open wounds. Austere environments and initial wound contamination increase the risk for infection. Wound infections continue to cause significant morbidity among injured Servicemembers. Limited evidence suggests that early antibiotic therapy for open wounds reduces infection rates.
