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).
Postoperative pain as well as bleeding are the most common complications after palatal graft harvesting also postsurgical swelling have been reported , Although different agents were used ...
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.
An inflammatory response is the normal response to a burn-induced injury. The burn-associated inflammation can lead to further tissue damage as the tissue tries to repair the damage. Prolonged or exce...
There is a high incidence of household knife-related injuries requiring emergency department treatment in the U.S. The Pitch Ointment, a named formula developed by a compounding pharmacist, was used s...
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 ...
Many recent studies have focused on the potential role of topical agents in the wound healing process. To compare the time to healing of full-thickness wounds treated with topical estrogen, phenytoin,...
Conversion to full-thickness tear in partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (PTRCTs) is based on the quality and thickness of the normal-looking untorn rotator cuff layer. However, whether the untorn te...
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)
