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.
This project is designed as a prospective, randomized, comparative study evaluating the use of a negative pressure vacuum device in treating traumatic wounds sustained associated with an o...
The worldwide prevalence of open wounds is estimated to be approximately 200 million per year. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), the application of a controlled vacuum to an open wou...
The current standard for negative pressure wound therapy is the Vacuum Assisted Closure Device (VAC), a commercial system that utilizes a computerized suction pump to apply negative pressu...
The primary purpose of the study is to determine whether two vacuum-wound-dressing techniques (the so called "abdominal dressing" versus "vacuum-pack-technique") are equally effective in t...
Excessive biofluid around wounds often causes infection and hinders wound healing. However, the intrinsic hydrophilicity of the conventional dressing inevitably retains excessive biofluid at the inter...
An early-stage decision clinicians often make in the management of complex wounds is which method of wound preparation will be appropriate for the patient. This decision can be affected by numerous wo...
Wound care forms a large component of the ever-increasing workload of district and community nurses. The need for a cost-effective product that can be used on a variety of wounds and that meets multip...
Chitosan (CS) is a biodegradable and biocompatible polysaccharide that displays immune-stimulatory effects and anti-bacterial properties for facilitating wound closure. Over the years, different CS-ba...
To explore the characteristics of patients with tuberculous wounds and non-tuberculous chronic refractory wounds in single center. From January 2010 to June 2017, 43 patients with tuberculous wounds ...
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 dinoflagellate with a life cycle that includes numerous flagellated, amoeboid, and encysted stages. Both the flagellated and amoeboid forms produce toxins which cause open wounds on fish. Pfiesteria piscicida feeds on tissue sloughed from these wounds, as well as on bacteria and algae. It is found in Atlantic estuaries of the United States.
Aspiration of the contents of the uterus with a vacuum curette.
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Family of flies in the order DIPTERA, commonly known as flesh flies. They lay their eggs in dead or decaying matter or open wounds.
