The objective of the study is to compare infection rates between primary, delayed primary and vacuum assisted closures in contaminated and dirty/infected laparotomy wounds.


The objective of this study is to compare infection rates between primary, delayed primary and vacuum assisted closures in contaminated and dirty/infected laparotomy wounds.

Social, demographic, surgical, postsurgical and medical variables were registered. A descriptive analysis expressed as total and percentages, medians and interquartile ranges. Comparison between groups was made using the Kruskal-Wallis, U-Mann Whitney or Chi-squared as appropriate. A p value of less than 0.05 was considered significant.

Study to Determine the Utility of Wound Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) Compared to Conventional Saline Dressing Changes

The purpose of this study is to look at the use of the wound vacuum assisted closure (VAC) versus standard wet to dry dressing in treating lower leg fasciotomies.

Endoscopic-vacuum Assisted Closure of Intrathoracic Postsurgical Leaks

The purpose of this study is to determine the short and long term outcome of endoscopic vacuum assisted closure of intrathoracic postsurgical leaks.

A Randomised Controlled Trial Comparing Vacuum Assisted Closure (V.A.C.®) With Modern Wound Dressings

Current treatment modalities for chronic leg ulcers are time consuming, expensive, and only moderately successful. Recent data suggest that creating a sub-atmospheric pressure by Vacuum As...

Vacuum Assisted Closure Versus On-demand Relaparotomy in Patients With Fecal or Diffuse Peritonitis

Multicenter randomized controlled trial including patients with fecal or diffuse peritonitis to either vacuum assisted closure or relaparotomy "on-demand".

Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography: Is there a Clinical Role in Management of Primary Angle Closure Disease?

Primary angle-closure disease (PACD) covers a spectrum that includes primary angle-closure suspect (PACS), primary angle-closure (PAC), primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), as well as acute primary ...

Does Vacuum-assisted Closure Reduce the Risk of Wound Complications in Patients With Lower Extremity Sarcomas Treated With Preoperative Radiation?

Although preoperative radiation followed by wide local excision yields excellent local control in soft tissue sarcomas, the risk of wound complications is reported to be higher compared with the incid...

Delayed closure of macular hole secondary to Terson syndrome after vitrectomy: A case report and literature review.

Macular hole (MH) is a rare complication of Terson syndrome. Delayed closure of persistent MH after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) is occasionally reported in literature, none of them is MH secondary to ...

Clip Closure After Resection of Large Colorectal Lesions With Substantial Risk of Bleeding.

It is not clear whether closure of mucosal defects with clips after colonic endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) prevents delayed bleeding, although it seems to have no protective effects when risk is l...

Integration of Genetic and Biometric Risk Factors for Detection of Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma.

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the addition of primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) associated genetic loci allows improved detection of PACG, compared to anterior segment param...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The tendency to perceive an incomplete pattern or object as complete or whole. This includes the Gestalt Law of Closure.

Therapeutic closure of spaces caused by the extraction of teeth, the congenital absence of teeth, or the excessive space between teeth.

Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.

Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)

Premature closure of one or more sutures of the skull.
