Standard care of care and up to twelve (12) weekly debridements. Subjects randomized into the weekly debridement group will receive up to twelve (12) debridement during the twelve (12) weeks of the study. There will be two (2) subject groups in the study. Subjects will be randomized into either the monthly debridement group or the weekly debridement group.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate subjects enrolled and randomized to the weekly sharp debridement group.

Patients who present to a wound care center for management of their wounds will be evaluated clinically to establish if their wounds are chronic or acute. These patients will undergo stan...
The UltraHeal Study is a randomized controlled trial to compare healing response of low frequency contact ultrasonic-assisted debridement in addition to best practice wound care to best pr...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of HemCon chitosan-based dressings is effective to facilitate safe, effective debridement of chronic wounds in the operating room and i...
We have designed this study to determine whether performing two, compared with ≥3 operations has an effect on key clinical outcomes after discharge from the hospital of an infected wound...
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a life-threatening condition in which rapid diagnosis, debridement of nonviable tissue, and broad-spectrum antibiotics are critical to effective treatment. The debridemen...
Maggot debridement therapy (MDT) has proved an efficient and reliable approach for wound healing. We explain the use of maggots with a stepwise procedure for conducting MDT in a patient with severe an...
The aim of this study was to compare changes in wound size and appearance and health complication rates in patients with vasculopathy and lower-extremity wounds treated with or without low-frequency c...
Debridement is essential for the optimal care of venous leg ulcers. Several debridement methods with different limitations may be deployed. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is used for several dermatologica...
Open-to-Air Is a Viable Option for Initial Wound Care in Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection that Allows Early Detection of Recurrence without Need for Painful Dressing Changes or Return to Operating Room.
The standard treatment of necrotizing soft tissue infection (NSTI) includes extensive surgical debridement. Care of these debridements is challenging because of the size of the wound and associated pa...
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Penetrating wounds caused by a pointed object.

A dinoflagellate with a life cycle that includes numerous flagellated, amoeboid, and encysted stages. Both the flagellated and amoeboid forms produce toxins which cause open wounds on fish. Pfiesteria piscicida feeds on tissue sloughed from these wounds, as well as on bacteria and algae. It is found in Atlantic estuaries of the United States.
