This is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical study Of PuraPly® AM and standard of care (SOC) compared to SOC alone for the management of Stage II-IV pressure ulcers located in the gluteal, ischial, hip, sacral, coccygeal, and trochanteric, malleolus, or heel area.
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate a new anchor for rotator cuff repair, the Smith & Nephew Healicoil anchor. This anchor utilizes a small open-construct design to promote bone-in growth and potentially allow for the release of bone marrow factors into the repair site. In vivo ovine studies comparing the FT RC anchor to the Arthrex SwivelLock anchor have shown superior bone in-growth. Thus, this study consists of three separate aims in order to clinically and bio...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the ability of the product "Sacral Saver," to prevent and /or help healing bed sores.
The purpose of the study is to acquire kinematic in vivo fluoroscopy data using the University of Tennessee's tracking fluoroscopy system (TFS) from subjects who were implanted with the Smith & Nephew Journey II posterior cruciate retaining (PCR) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or Journey II bi-cruciate retaining (BCR) TKA. CMR has previously collected data for the Smith & Nephew BCS TKA and compared these kinematics data to those of normal knees.
Smith & Nephew's first edition of the Journey posterior stabilizing total knee arthroplasty was analyzed by the Center for Musculoskeletal Research in a past research study, and it was determined that subjects experienced more normal-like kinematic patterns. They also achieved excessive axial rotation and a decrease in weight-bearing knee flexion. Since Smith & Nephew has made modifications to the Journey BCS TKA design, researchers will again evaluate the kinematics of subject...
Many spinal cord injury (SCI) and otherwise debilitated patients develop pressure ulcers over the course of their injury or disease. Despite enhanced wound care management, many pressure ulcers do not heal completely and require surgical myocutaneous rotational flap coverage. Even then they often recur. The objectives of this study are: (1) to conduct a controlled comparative study of the effectiveness of subatmospheric pressure dressing (SPD) in healing pressure ulcers versus...
In surgical patients, prevention of pressure injury is a challenge because of the high risk for multiple comorbid conditions, hemodynamic instability, and long duration of immobility. The objectives of our study is to compare the difference in incidence rates of sacral pressure injury in surgical patients with supine position more than 3 hours between those treated with usual preventive care and a sacral foam pad versus a control group receiving usual care.
Incisional negative pressure therapy (INPWT) has previously been shown in certain patient populations to decrease wound healing complications, decrease the rate of hematomas and seromas, as well as have better scar quality. We have found a group of patients, those who have panniculectomies in preparation for renal transplant, with significantly higher rates of wound healing complications. We believe the best way to demonstrate benefits of incisional negative pressure wound ther...
This study tests the effectiveness of a morphine-containing gel for reducing pain caused by pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores or pressure sores. We will apply the gel containing morphine, or the gel alone, directly onto painful pressure ulcers and compare the results.
Hospital-acquired pressure ulcers (HAPUs) are a well-established serious complication of hospitalization that have serious consequences on patient morbidity and mortality as well as the cost of care. At the core of the problem for patient-centered targeted prevention of HAPUs is the lack of knowledge surrounding the magnitude and duration of pressure necessary to cause pressure ulcers, and the lack of immediate feedback on whether these interventions do anything to substantiall...
Pressure ulcers are severe injuries and wounds causing a substantial burden on patients, caregivers, and on healthcare systems worldwide. There is common agreement, that effective pressure ulcer prevention is of crucial importance to maintain skin and tissue integrity in individuals at risk. Besides risk assessment and repositioning the use of special pressure ulcer preventive support surfaces are the key interventions in pressure ulcer prevention. Pressure ulcer preventive sup...
The wound infection rate in the groin after vascular surgery has been denoted to be high since the wound surveillance register started in 2005. The current wound infection rate based on a validation study was 22.9% (24/105 patients with groin incision(s) between 1 March to 30 June in 2012). The Deep/superficial infection ratio was 7/17. To prove that PICO (negative wound pressure therapy) reduces the wound infection rate with ½ standard deviation, 90% power at the 5% significa...
From the point of view of nursing to know exactly the different risk factors for the onset of pressure ulcers is very important as it allows to accurately orient preventive care interventions. All the variable that could influence the development of pressure ulcer in patients undergoing knee replacement surgery are identified and collected: age, sex, body max index, risk to develop Pressure Ulcer (braden score), treatment to prevent pressure ulcers (typology of the devic...
This pilot study will compare the incidence of pressure ulcers and the change in existing pressure ulcers for patients who are either placed on the new TC500 bed against those placed on the standard ICU bed in the Cardiovascular unit of University of Nebraska Medical Center. Additionally, the cost associated with rental beds will be calculated as well as skin care compliance. Sixty patients will be enrolled (30 per study arm).
Pressure ulcers (PU) cause pain and discomfort to affected patients, as well as considerable costs for society. The present study will evaluate the effect of the Continuous Bedside Pressure Mapping (CBPM)- system on PU prevalence and incidence. A RCT including 180 patients will be conducted in a geriatric setting in a Swedish University hospital
The primary aim of the proposed multi-site, randomized pressure-reducing wheelchair trial (PRWC-II) is to determine the efficacy of pressure-reducing cushions in preventing sitting-acquired pressure ulcers in the elderly, nursing home population. Positive results of the proposed trial will provide the level of evidence needed to change the standard of care to include the routine evaluation of at-risk residents for seating and positioning needs and the provision of pressure-redu...

The purpose of this study is to compare a 2-hour versus every 4-hour turning regimen on the incidence of grade > II pressure ulcers (PU) in patients in ICU on mechanical ventilation ≥ 24h that use alternating-pressure air mattresses (APAMs).
To investigate whether an oral nutritional supplement of a mixture of arginine, glutamine and HMB for a maximum period of four weeks is more beneficial than the standard dietary approach to the healing of pressure ulcers, and to examine whether the use of it can reduce admissions and length of hospitalizations for these patients.
Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty by unicompartmental prosthesis (PUC) is a treatment for isolated internal femoro-tibial osteoarthritis. This intervention is justified in cases of significant discomfort, failure of medical treatment and the absence of osteoarthritis in femoro tibial external and patellofemoral femoro compartments. It aims to replace the native internal femoral tibial articulation by a joint between two implants, without intervening on the other compartments. ...

Specific Aim - The clinical trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the PRO-TECT ™ mattress overlay in ICU patients who have already developed early pressure ulcers (Stage 1 and 2) and preventing further progressio...
The sacrum is the mechanical nucleus of the axial skeleton, serving as the base for the spinal column as well as the keystone for the pelvic ring. Sacral fractures occur in approximately 45% of all pelvic fractures. the mechanism of injury resulting in sacral fractures typically is one of high energy from motor vehicle accidents and fall from a height. Approximately 30% of sacral fractures are identified late. Unrecognized and inadequately treated sacral fractures may l...
Development of pressure ulcer (PU) is complex and multifactorial. The association of a constituted PU and of clinical / biological major elements is demonstrated and justifies. Prevention of PU is an important health priority, one that requires clear identification of risk factors.
This study is designed to compare SANTYL® versus hydrogel (SoloSite®) in the treatment of pressure ulcers for participants in a long-term care facility. After meeting study criteria, participants will be randomly assigned for application of SANTYL® or SoloSite® to their pressure ulcer for up to 6 weeks. A study previously conducted showed that in the long-term care setting, the removal of dead skin (debridement) with SANTYL® resulted in more participants achieving complete...
