OBJECTIVE: The influence of proteins on the efficacy of antiseptic solutions has been rarely investigated even though exudate can contain high levels of protien. The aim of this study was to analyse the antibacterial efficacy of commonly used solutions in the presence of albumin protein. METHOD: Using Staphylococcus aureus in a standardised quantitative suspension assay, the antibacterial effects of poly (1-(2-oxo-1-pyrrolidinyl) ethylene)-iodine (PVP-I) and octenidin-dihydrochloride/phenoxyethanol (OCT/PE) were analysed in the presence of 0-3% bovine serum albumin (BSA)...

This case study describes frostbite, a previously unreported complication following cryolipolysis, which resulted in substantial necrosis of the flank. Medical attention was not sought until one week after treatment. On examination, two distinct areas of significant frostbite in the left flank with surrounding erythema were revealed. Surgical intervention was avoided, as is recommended in cases of frostbite, and conservative treatment resulted in recovery of the affected area. Here, the authors highlight the adverse effects related to cryolipolysis, analysing the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and management of this injury...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the clinical empirical evidence for identifying, managing and preventing skin maceration in human subjects. METHOD: A rapid review of the current literature was undertaken between 5 September and 19 September 2016 using the electronic databases CINAHL, MEDLINE, PUBMED and Cochrane, with the key words: skin macerat*, wound macerat*, moisture associated skin damage, wound exudate and hyper-hydration of skin, Results: Of 526 papers found using an electronic database search, four were identified as fitting the search parameters, and a further two were retrieved from a manual search of reference lists...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the accuracy of visual diagnosis of tinea pedis (Athlete's foot) and tinea unguium (fungal nail infection), as well as to provide information on skin abnormalities that could help identify these diseases in aged care facilities (long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and nursing homes). METHOD: A multicentre, cross-sectional observational study was conducted in a LTCF and two nursing homes. A dermatologist observed the skin abnormalities in the participants' interdigital and plantar areas, to screen for tinea pedis, and in the participants' toenails, to screen for tinea unguium...

OBJECTIVE: There is an increasing search for antibiofilm agents that either have specific activity against biofilms or may act in synergy with antimicrobials. Our objective is to examine the the antibiofilm properties of stingless bee honeys. METHOD: Meliponini honeys from Costa Rica were examined along with Medihoney as a reference. All honeys were submitted to a screening composed of minimum inhibitory concentration, inhibition of biofilm formation and biofilm destruction microplate-based assays against a Staphylococcus aureus biofilm forming strain...

Using a multidisciplinary, patient-centric approach work over two decades has led to the many advances made by Professor Patricia Grocott during her academic career at Kings College London (KCL). In her inaugural lecture as Professor of Nursing Technology and Innovation, Grocott recalls her work and inspirations, from her prosthetics for a large nodule wound to her current projects, which involve codesigning medical devices and technologies with patients vulnerable to skin breakdown. Her collaboration with an openness to other disciplines has enabled her work to cross boundaries and improve patients' quality of life and outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Inhibiting bacterial biofilms is of major significance for proper wound healing. The choice of the dressing material plays a key role, as bacteria can live in dressings and keep reinfecting the wound. This study examines the effectiveness of a colloidal silver gel (Ag-gel) wound dressing in inhibiting the growth of bacteria in a mouse wound model. METHOD: Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii and two different meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains were examined...

OBJECTIVE: Traditional burn dressings demonstrate unfavourable tendencies of shrinking when wet and failing to maintain their integrity when manipulated. To overcome these obstacles, gel-forming fibre dressings have emerged as an alternative. Our objective was to observe the clinical properties and healing ability in the setting of burn wounds in a paediatric centre of a chitosan-based dressing containing silver. METHODS: A sample of 12 partial-thickness burns in 10 children were identified for treatment with the chitosan-based silver dressing...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the published academic literature on the cost of chronic ulcers. METHODS: A literature search was conducted in MEDLINE, EMBASE, HealthSTAR, Econlit and CINAHL up to 12 May 2016 to identify potential studies for review. Cost search terms were based on validated algorithms. Clinical search terms were based on recent Cochrane reviews of interventions for chronic ulcers. Titles and abstracts were screened by two reviewers to determine eligibility for full text review...

OBJECTIVE: The local delivery of antimicrobials is attractive for a number of reasons. Chitosan, a biodegradable polysaccharide sponge material, has been proposed as medium to deliver antibiotics directly to wounds. In this report we evaluate the safety and practicality of antimicrobial delivery via chitosan sponge. METHOD: We present the clinical course and systemic absorption characteristics of three cases of people with diabetic foot wounds treated with antibiotic soaked chitosan sponge (Sentrex BioSponge, Bionova Medical, Germantown, TN)...

L Patullo, S Rajagopalan
Referral to specialist centres for treatment of lymphoedema can often have long waiting times. Management of a patient with massive lymphoedema and lymphorrhoea was provided in a vascular outpatient setting. A new form of compression using a wraparound system was used for the management (Juxta-Fit, Medi UK). Despite having previously been non-concordant with treatment options, the patient was independent with product use. Lymphorrhoea ceased and there was a marked decrease in girth size. The patient's quality of life improved and maintenance treatment was provided...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to quantify blood cells and inflammatory markers, involved in the healing process, in exudates from wounds in different healing phases, to assess these markers in order to identify the inflammatory phase of the wounds. METHOD: Patients who presented with postsurgical wounds, which closed by first and second intention, and those who presented with pressure ulcers (PUs), which were closed by second intention, were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: Pressure ulcer (PU) prevention is one of the most important roles of nurses in intensive care units (ICUs). This study was conducted to identify intensive care registered nurses' perceived barriers towards PU prevention in south east Iran. METHOD: This study employed a descriptive cross-sectional design. A convenience sample consisted of registered nurses working in trauma intensive care units affliated by Zahedan Medical University participated in this study...

OBJECTIVE: Acute traumatic wounds are contaminated with bacteria and therefore an infection risk. Antiseptic wound irrigation before surgical intervention is routinely performed for contaminated wounds. However, a broad variety of different irrigation solutions are in use. The aim of this retrospective, non-randomised, controlled longitudinal cohort study was to assess the preventive effect of four different irrigation solutions before surgical treatment, on wound infection in traumatic soft tissue wounds...

OBJECTIVE: Compression therapy is a gold standard treatment to promote venous leg ulcer (VLU) healing. Concordance with compression therapy is, however, often sub-optimal. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of electric stimulation therapy (EST) to facilitate healing of VLUs among people who do not use moderate-to-high levels of compression (>25 mmHg). METHOD: A pilot multicentre, single-blinded randomised controlled trial was conducted. Participants were randomised (2:1) to the intervention group or a control group where EST or a sham device was used 4 times daily for 20 minutes per session...
