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...
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...
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...
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.
The overall rationale for this investigation is to evaluate the clinical performance potential for Mepilex Border Post-Op Ag in the ability to minimize the risk of skin related post-operat...
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...
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...
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 ...
To explore the need for an extended diagnostic workup in patients with venous leg ulcers (VLUs) and to establish the prevalence of the underlying causes of VLU.
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...
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.
