An Open, Randomized, Multi-centre Investigation With Mepilex Ag Versus Silver Sulfadiazine in the Treatment of Deep Partial Thickness Burn Injuries.

The purpose is to compare time to healing using absorbent foam silver dressing (Mepilex Ag) compared to a silver sulfadiazine (SSD) 1% cream in the treatment of partial thickness burn inju...

Effect of Hyaluronic Acid ECM on Venous Ulcers

The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the incidence and rate of wound healing in subjects with venous ulcers treated with an extracellular matrix wound dressing composed of hyaluro...

PermeaDerm® vs. Mepilex-Ag® in Promoting Healing of Partial-thickness Burn Wounds

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...

Compare the Efficacy of Mepilex and Keramatrix in Second Degree Burn Wounds

The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which Keramatrix dressing promotes the healing of second-degree burn wounds in pediatric patients.

Evaluation of a Self-adherent Absorbent Silver Dressing Coated With a Soft Silicone Layer After Elective Primary Total Hip or Knee Arthroplasty

Understanding venous leg ulcers.

Venous leg ulcers are open lesions between the knee and the ankle joint, which occur in the presence of venous insufficiency. There are theories to explain the causes of venous insufficiency, which ul...

Dressings and topical agents for treating venous leg ulcers.

Venous leg ulcers are open skin wounds on the lower leg which can be slow to heal, and are both painful and costly. The point prevalence of open venous leg ulcers in the UK is about 3 cases per 10,000...

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy for the healing and management of venous leg ulcers.

Leg ulcers are chronic wounds of the lower leg, caused by poor blood flow, that can take a long time to heal. The pooling of blood in the veins can damage the skin and surrounding tissues, causing an ...

Chronic venous insufficiency: a new concept to understand pathophysiology at the microvascular level - a pilot study.

The real mechanism for the development of the later stages of chronic venous insufficiency still remains unclear. Venous hypervolemia and microvascular ischemia have been reported to be the consequenc...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.

A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.

Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.

The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
