Novel Wound Dressing with Chitosan Gold Nanoparticles Capped with a Small Molecule for Effective Treatment of Multiantibiotic-Resistant Bacterial Infections.

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 ...

Outcomes of Prophylactic Negative Pressure Wound Therapy in Knee Arthroplasty.

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...

Autologous mononuclear cells from different sources are seen to improve wound healing in patients with haematological malignancies.

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.

Efficacy of Aeschynomene indica Linn leaves for wound healing and isolation of active constituent.

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.

Faster wound healing after vascular surgery: negative pressure wound therapy for exposed prosthetic vascular grafts in the groin.

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...

Intermittent Catheterization and Urinary Tract Infection: A Comparative Study Between Germany and Brazil.

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).

Extended pelvic resection for rectal and anal canal tumors is a significant risk factor for perineal wound infection: a retrospective cohort study.

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.

The Role of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy in Managing Chinese Patients With Wound-derived Acute Severe Illness.

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.

Pulmonary influenza A virus infection leads to suppression of the innate immune response to dermal injury.

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...

Diagnostic value of fluorine-18 deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography in deep sternal wound infection.

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.

Prehospital Administration of Antibiotic Prophylaxis for Open Combat Wounds in Afghanistan: 2013-2014.

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.

Non-antibiotic antimicrobial interventions and antimicrobial stewardship in wound care.

Control of wound infection today relies largely on antibiotics, but the continual emergence of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era when physicians used antiseptics to prevent and manage infection. Some of those antiseptics are still used today, and others have become available. A diverse variety of non-antibiotic antimicrobial interventions are found on modern formularies. Unlike the mode of action of antibiotics, which affect specific cellular target sites of pa...

Impact of relationship between the stoma site and the primary incision on occurrence of laparotomy wound infection in contaminated or dirty wound operations in neonates.

Wound centres-how do we obtain high quality? The EWMA wound centre endorsement project.

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 ...

Wound healing in wild male baboons: Estimating healing time from wound size.

Wound healing in animals is important to minimize the fitness costs of infection. Logically, a longer healing time is associated with higher risk of infection and higher energy loss. In wild mammals, wounds caused by aggressive intraspecific interactions can potentially have lethal repercussions. Clarifying wounding rate and healing time is therefore important for measuring the severity of the attacks. In addition, impact of secondary damage of wounds (e.g., accidental peeling off of scabs) on heeling time ...
