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 purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the wound dressings currently used at our institution for partial-thickness burn wounds: PermeaDerm® (PermeaDerm, Inc., Carlsb...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Split thickness skin grafts (STSGs) are one of the standard treatments available for full thickness wound repair when full thickness grafts (FTGs) are not viable, such as in the case of wounds with la...
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)
