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)...

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim is to assess the efficacy of microcurrent, a form of electrical stimulation, as an adjunct therapy in accelerating healing in chronic wounds by reducing wound size and pain level. The secondary aim is to assess the qualitative changes in these parameters: inflammatory symptoms, vasodilation, sleep quality, gait and frequency of bowel movement. METHOD: Eligible patients with chronic wounds were enrolled between March and June 2016, from the Wound Care Unit, Hospital Kuala Lumpur in this consecutive case series...

Philip G Bowler
Since the introduction of antibiotics into human medicine in the 1940's, antibiotic resistance has emerged at an alarming rate and is now a major threat to public health. This problem is amplified by pathogenic bacteria existing most commonly in biofilm form, creating additional bacterial tolerance to antimicrobial agents. Biofilm is now considered to be a primary cause of chronic infection, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria are prevalent in biofilm form. In particular, chronic non-healing wounds commonly harbour complex polymicrobial, pathogenic biofilm that is tolerant to systemic and topical antimicrobial therapy...

OBJECTIVE: This case series evaluates the safety and effectiveness of 3D-printed scaffold in chronic wounds. The scaffold is a composite of natural and synthetic materials, and can be prepared in the form of powder or membrane. METHOD: We recruited patients with pressure ulcera (PU) and/or a diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). We used two methods: 3D-printed scaffolds alone, or 3D-printing powder mixed with platelet-rich fibrinogen (PRF). Clinicians and patients were asked to rate the scaffold's ease of application and comfort during use...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) and visual skin assessment (VSA) in pressure ulcers (PU) patients with jaundice in Korea. METHOD: This is a longitudinal observational study. Data was collected by a wound care nurse, at a tertiary hospital, for six weeks beginning in June 2013. Once a week for the six weeks, the nurse assessed VSA and measured SEM, for each subject, on seven anatomical sites (both buttocks, both ischial tuberosities, both trochanters, and the sacral coccyx), using a NOVA Petite dermal phase meter for SEM...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to examine the antimicrobial potential of eight selected, commercially available wound dressings containing different antimicrobial agents: silver, chlorhexidine acetate, povidone-iodine, and manuka honey. METHOD: The materials were tested against four reference strains of bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus (PCM 2051), Staphylococcus epidermidis (PCM 2118), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853), and Escherichia coli (K12), using the disc diffusion-like method and a time-killing assay...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the use of ultrasonic debridement in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). METHOD: In this prospective, single-arm, open-label study, all patients with DFUs underwent wound debridement by ultrasonic debridement system (SonicOne OR Ultrasonic debridement system). Wherever possible, the edges were approximated by means of stitches. In other cases, the surgical breach healed by secondary intention, or a partial thickness skin graft (with or without Integra Dermal Regeneration Template or Integra Flowable Wound Matrix) was applied, and subsequently healed by primary intention...

Sharon D Hunt, Fredrik Elg, Steven L Percival
OBJECTIVE: To assess use of an adjunctive topical haemoglobin spray in the treatment of sloughy wounds. METHOD: In addition to a standard wound care regimen, consecutive patients with sloughy wounds self-administered haemoglobin spray treatment twice a week until the wound was healed. All patients were followed-up for 26 weeks. Results were compared with a retrospective cohort of 100 consecutive patients, treated during the same period the previous year with standard wound care alone...

OBJECTIVE: When the delicate balance between catabolic and anabolic processes is disturbed for any reason, the healing process can stall, resulting in chronic wounds. In chronic wound pathophysiology, proteolytic imbalance is implicated due to elevated protease levels mediating tissue damage. Hence, it is important to design appropriate wound treatments able to control and modulate protease activity directly at the host/biomaterial interface. Here, we investigate collagen-based wound dressings with the focus on their potential to adsorb and inactivate tissue proteases...
