The purpose of this pilot clinical study is to compare healing rates, pain levels, and incidence of wound complications including infection with the use of a moist PROCELLERA™ Antimicrob...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a bioelectric wound dressing, a silver-coated dressing, or a silver-foam dressing are effective in the treatment of wounds resulting from ...
The objective of the study is to evaluate Procellera® , a novel FDA approved antimicrobial wound dressing in a prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study. The hypothesis is that w...
This is a study comparing two methods of dressing a post operative wound that are currently in practice. One method is a traditional dry gauze dressing. The other method is using a negativ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of a bioelectric wound dressing is effective in the healing of skin graft donor site wounds.
Rapid absorption of wound exudate and prevention of wound infection are prerequisites for wound dressing to accelerate wound healing. In this study, a novel kind of promising wound dressing is develop...
Natural polymer-based wound dressings have gained great attention in skin tissue engineering. Silk fibroin (SF) spun from Bombyx mori (B. mori) is a potential wound dressing material due to its outsta...
Knowledge of wound bioburden can guide selection of therapies, for example, the use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) devices with instillation in a heavily contaminated wound. Wound and periw...
Hard-to-heal wounds such as leg (LU) or diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) are slow healing, have a high recurrence rate and are associated with infection, smell and exudate. Current therapeutic approaches ar...
Dressings are necessary during the process of wound healing. Since the early 1980s, several types of wound dressings have been produced, but they cannot always take into account some effects include a...
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.
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.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
Restoration of integrity to traumatized tissue.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
