OBJECTIVE: Few studies have investigated methods to monitor the moisture distribution and filling percentage of dressings during wound management. In this study, a new system allowing moisture monitoring across the wound dressing to be measured is examined. METHOD: The system is composed of a wound bed model with a fluid injection system to mimic exudate flow, a flexible sensor array and data acquisition software. The sensor is composed of 14 flexible electrode arrays, screen-printed on a flexible support and placed on the top of a wound dressing...

OBJECTIVE: Tri-component antibacterial psyllium-alginate-chitosan fibres were developed and their properties were studied with reference to their application in health-care. METHOD: Psyllium was co-extruded with sodium alginate as a carrier into a coagulation bath containing calcium chloride and hydrolysed chitosan. Different concentrations of the hydrolysed chitosan were used and an in vitro assessment of antibacterial activity of the produced fibres was carried out against the known pathogens of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli...

Following on from the debate in the House of Lords (London, UK) 'Improving the standard of wound care in the NHS' in November 2017, Rt Hon. Lord Hunt of Kings Heath set up a meeting on 22 May to discuss the further action to be taken and work that has started to establish a National Wound Care Strategy.

OBJECTIVE: To develop a holistic pathway for leg ulcer assessment and management, implemented within a local community organisation. The primary aim for this pathway was to reduce time-to-healing. METHOD: A leg ulcer pathway was designed to be used in all care settings to support continuity, and contains quality of life (QoL) assessment tools, a treatment algorithm, guidance for use, a leg ulcer assessment form, and a wound treatment chart. RESULTS: Data analysis, carried out 12 months after implementation, compared pre- and post-averages for ulcer time-to-healing: 123...

Control of wound infection today relies largely on antibiotics, but the continual emergence of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms threatens a return to the pre-antibiotic era when physicians used antiseptics to prevent and manage infection. Some of those antiseptics are still used today, and others have become available. A diverse variety of non-antibiotic antimicrobial interventions are found on modern formularies. Unlike the mode of action of antibiotics, which affect specific cellular target sites of pathogens, many non-antibiotic antimicrobials affect multiple cellular target sites in a non-specific way...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the potential efficacy and safety of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in comparison with the conventional treatment (standard care, SoC) for the treatment of leg ulcers in patients with chronic venous insufficiency, in a primary health-care setting. METHOD: A Phase I-II, open-label, parallel-group, multicentre, randomised pilot study was conducted. The outcome variables at baseline and at weeks five and nine included reduction in the ulcer area, Chronic Venous Insufficiency Quality of Life Questionnaire score, cost of the treatment for up to nine weeks and average weekly cure rate...

Open fractures of the leg with large loss of tissue require extensive reconstructive methods that can injure the donor area. The use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) may minimise the impact of these reconstructive methods because of its capacity to create granulation tissue that will form a wound bed for the skin graft, thus reducing the volume of soft tissue defect and saving the donor region. This case study describes the effectiveness of NPWT in the treatment and reconstruction of an open fracture of the leg, with massive loss of soft tissue, associated with elastic intramedullary nailing in a 10-year-old female patient, who was a victim of a car accident...

OBJECTIVE: Angiogenesis, formation of new vessels from pre-existing vessels, is an essential part of wound healing. We aimed to compare amniotic membrane extract with deferoxamine in angiogenesis and to assess any synergistic effect. METHOD: We examined four groups of rats (five per group): control, deferoxamine, amniotic membrane extract, and deferocxamine and amniotic membrane extract in combination. A distal-based skin flap was created. Deferoxamine (100mg/kg), amniotic membrane extract (0...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review of the healing potential of medicinal plants belonging to the Brazilian National List of Medicinal Plants of Interest to the Unified Health System (RENISUS). METHOD: PubMed and ScienceDirect databases were searched for relevant articles, regardless of the language, from 2010 to June 2016. Two reviewers independently assessed study eligibility. Articles were included if they presented evidence of healing potential of medicinal plants...

An unusual presentation of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), unlikely to be encountered in an outpatient dermatology setting, was diagnosed in a patient without an immunodeficiency. A 47-year-old woman, who was immunocompetent and had no risk factors, presented with a full-thickness, infected wound (large amounts of purulent exudate and severe pain) on her back, which had been present for two months. She was diagnosed as having an MAC infection, using a DNA microarray chip method. The patient underwent wound drainage and a fresh silver-containing dressing was applied daily for two months...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and microbiological effects of sequential wound debridement in a case series of neuroischaemic diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) using an ultrasound-assisted wound debridement (UAW) device. METHOD: A prospective, single-centre study, involving a case series of 24 neuroischaemic DFUs, was conducted to evaluate sequential wound debridement with UAW during a six-week treatment period. Soft tissue punch biopsies were taken every second week of treatment, both before and after wound debridement sessions...

OBJECTIVE: Different types of multidisciplinary concepts for treating non-healing wounds have been developed. However, there is insufficient evidence on the quality of multidisciplinary wound centres, and a limited number of evaluation systems have so far been developed. The lack of an international wound centre evaluation/certification system is the basis for the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) Wound Centre Endorsement Project. The project aims to describe the minimum requirements for a wound management centre...

OBJECTIVE: Diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) have the potential to deteriorate rapidly, in the absence of prompt assessment and treatment. The aim of this study was to analyse the awareness and perception of DFU among general practitioners (GPs) from four European countries, and to find possible differences between these countries in terms of management. METHOD: A two-part, quantitative, online questionnaire was distributed to GPs across four countries in Europe-the UK, France, Germany and Spain...

OBJECTIVE: This study sought to determine the effects of oral vitamin C (VitC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on wound healing in diabetic nude mice. METHOD: Bilateral, full-skin thickness wounds were created as an in vivo wound model in BALB/C diabetic nude mice. The mice were separated into five groups: control (CON); diabetes mellitus (DM, from a streptozotocin injection); DM treated with MSCs (DM+MSCs); DM treated with VitC (DM+VitC), and DM treated with MSCs and VitC (DM+MSCs+VitC)...
