This is an observational, longitudinal real world registry of diabetic foot ulcers created from electronic health record data obtained in the course of clinical care. Data from certified e...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of MIST Therapy in combination with standard of care (SOC) compared to SOC alone on reducing the bacteria in your wound and prepa...
This is a pilot study. The investigators plan a cohort study of 10 patients with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). Study duration will be three weeks. Patients will be consented and undergo de...
This is a prospective study of Veterans with diabetic foot ulcers who will be randomized to either a Larval Debridement Therapy group (Biobags every 4 days x 2 applications) or a Sharp Deb...
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), is a non invasive wound management tool which develops from negative pressure being applied to the wound. This promotes healing through the removal ...
To present results and complications in a case series of outpatients with diabetic and neuropathic foot ulcers with exposed bone following surgical debridement treated with negative-pressure wound the...
The treatment of osteomyelitis in patients with stage IV sacral pressure ulcers is controversial. We conducted a systematic literature review and did not find evidence of benefit of antibacterial ther...
A new reticulated open-cell foam dressing with through holes (ROCF-CC) has been introduced to assist with wound cleansing by removing thick wound exudate and infectious materials during neg- ative pre...
Open fractures of the leg with large loss of tissue require extensive reconstructive methods that can injure the donor area. The use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) may minimise the impact o...
This retrospective study of 510 patients receiving negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in a home care setting examines the relationship between remote therapy monitoring (RTM) and patient adherence...
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.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
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.
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
Historically, tissue transplantation, especially of refrigerated tissue (after Filatov). It was theorized that nonspecific substances, capable of initiating restorative processes, formed in tissues when refrigerated. Cell therapy (after Niehans) refers to implantation of tissue by injection. Originally this involved fresh cells but later frozen or lyophilized cells.
