Incisional negative pressure therapy (INPWT) has previously been shown in certain patient populations to decrease wound healing complications, decrease the rate of hematomas and seromas, a...
This study is being conducted to determine how the PICO™ Negative Pressure Wound Therapy compares to standard care treatment for venous stasis ulcers, as there is no evidence to date.
This is a randomized controlled trial. Patients with a condition that increases their risk of a wound complication will be approached for inclusion in the trial. Each participant agreeing ...
The aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of two NPWT systems; one tNPWT system (ActiV.A.C.®) and a portable, canister-less, battery operated, disposable single-use NPWT s...
Advances in surgical techniques and immunosuppression (IS) have led to an appreciable reduction in postoperative complications following kidney transplantation. However, surgical site even...
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.
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 traditiona...
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 treat...
To evaluate negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for treatment of complicated wounds in dogs.
Effective wound healing depends on the adequate choice of the wound cleansing method, to enable rapid removal of necrotic tissue. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is an effective non-invasive te...
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.
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Clinical management approach wherein immediate therapy is not provided but there is a period of observation during which periodic tests monitor patient and the progression of the illness. (Driffield T, Smith PC Med Decis Making. 2007 Mar-Apr;27(2):178-88)
