Rationales for Wound Care Management in Old World Cutaneous Leishmaniasis Patients

2014-07-23 21:12:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The rationales of a clinical trial comparing intralesional antimonial therapy versus wound care management in patients with old world cutaneous leishmaniasis (OWCL) are the following:

1. The effectiveness of the current mainstay treatment with intralesional antimonials for CL is subject to discussion, especially in L. major lesions which are predominant in Northern Afghanistan

2. The importance of wound care management in patients with OWCL has been emphasized by Gonzalez et al. (2008) and its efficacy is confirmed in the Kabul trial with L. tropica patients.

Parallel to the clinical effectiveness the trial investigates the cost-effectiveness and -utility of the treatment options under study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.

Spindle-shaped cells with characteristic CONTRACTILE PROTEINS and structures that contribute to the WOUND HEALING process. They occur in GRANULATION TISSUE and also in pathological processes such as FIBROSIS.
