This is a Phase II, randomized, controlled, two-center pilot study designed to assess the safety and efficacy of MEBO in the treatment of 14 subjects with VLUs. Subjects meeting entry crit...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MEBO in the treatment of subjects with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
By doing this study, researchers hope to learn if applying Santyl to the burn during the healing process affects the appearance of the resulting scar.
This study will assess if a clinical trial regarding healing of partial thickness wounds can be executed in nursing homes.
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the time to wound healing in skin graft donor sites with a new treatment (Altrazeal dressing) compared to standard of care treatment (Aqua...
Nitric oxide is a wound mediator that promotes wound healing. We hypothesized that topical application of nitric oxide would speed reepithelialization, enhance angiogenesis, and reduce scar thickness ...
In clinical practice, split-thickness skin graft (STSG) transplantation remains the gold standard for covering large skin defects. Currently, there is no consensus on the optimal thickness of skin gra...
Innovative skin substitutes and temporary wound dressings are frequently used in the treatment of superficial and partial-thickness wounds. The aim of this study was to compare 2 commonly used tempora...
This study aims to evaluate the comparative performance of a resorbable nanofiber wound matrix (Restrata Wound Matrix; Acera Surgical Inc, St Louis, MO) and a bilayered collagen xenograft (Integra Bil...
Access to care for pediatric burns remains a major public health problem in the US. Telemedicine has an opportunity to improve access to care, but current models are expensive and inefficient. We have...
Pathologic process consisting of a partial or complete disruption of the layers of a surgical wound.
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).
Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)
