BACKGROUND: Calciphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening condition involving painful necrotic skin ulcerations, especially of the lower extremities. It is generally associated with chronic kidney failure but may be seen in nonuremic cases. CASE REPORT: We report a case of calciphylaxis in a 60-year-old man with diabetes on dialysis for end-stage renal disease and known to have other typical combination of risk factors associated with calciphylaxis syndrome. On examination, he presented with multiple intensely painful calciphylaxis wounds on his legs and ankles...

BACKGROUND: Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been described for closure of complex neonatal abdominal wounds, but advanced techniques for stoma or fistula control, skin protection, and the use of high pressure therapy not as well established. CASES: We identified neonatal patients at our institution who received NPWT for a complex abdominal wound, defined as a wound associated with a stoma or fistula with partial or complete dehiscence of the abdominal fascia or skin...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to develop and test a new method to measure the usability of absorbent incontinence care products from the caregivers' perspective and to investigate if the method can be used to differentiate between product types in a product change. DESIGN: Process evaluation and validation study. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Product developers and end users participated in designing the new method. Thereafter, professional caregivers acted as testers of the new method, ranking usability when performing absorbent product changes on patients in a simulated nursing home care environment, assisted by third-party research institute moderators...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate a revised version of the Incontinence-Associated Skin Damage Severity instrument (IASD.D.2) using 3 different groups of nursing staff. Revisions to the instrument included renumbering 1 body area where incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) occurs into 2 areas (right and left), which raised the total possible score from 52 to 56, and defining the borders of the body areas. DESIGN: Observational, evaluative design...

PURPOSE: This purpose of this study was to evaluate a novel barrier ring with an assisted flow mechanism by assessing changes in peristomal moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) and perceptions of comfort, security, handling, and discretion in persons with an ileostomy for 6 months or longer. DESIGN: Single-arm, open-labeled feasibility study. SUBJECTS AND SETTINGS: Twenty participants (aged ≥18 years) with an ileostomy for 6 months or more participated in the study and 12 completed data collection...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe experience, training, educational needs and preferences, and perceptions of pressure injury (PI) prevention education of wound care providers in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as an indicator of effectiveness of the mandated VHA PI Prevention Program. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: A convenience sample of national VHA wound care providers practicing in VHA facilities was compiled from members of special interest groups and committees and by referrals from known wound care specialists and clinicians (N = 1726)...

BACKGROUND: A groin wound associated with a vascular graft infection is associated with significant morbidity. Management of groin wounds is often challenging due to their anatomical location that renders them difficult to visualize and keep clean. CASE: This case report describes the use of a concentrated surfactant-based gel dressing for an infected groin wound. CONCLUSIONS: Because of their location and complex topography, groin wounds are difficult to keep clean and maintain dressing integrity...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of 0.2% polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB) to 0.8% metronidazole on malignant wound (MW) odor, health-related quality of life (HRQOL), and pain upon application. DESIGN: A double-blinded, randomized, clinical trial. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Twenty-four patients with malodorous MWs hospitalized in a referral cancer center in Sao Paulo, Brazil, participated in the trial. METHODS: Participants were randomly allocated to treatment with 0...

PURPOSE: The sacrum is the most common location of pressure injuries (PIs) in bedridden patients. The purpose of this study was to measure the effect of specific pressure preventive devices on sacral skeletal muscle, subcutaneous fat, and skin tissue deformations. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The sample comprised 3 healthy adults residing in a community setting in Tel Aviv, Israel. DESIGN: Descriptive, comparative design. METHODS: Tissue thickness changes of 3 healthy adults were measured using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in weight-bearing sacral skin, subcutaneous fat, and muscle...

BACKGROUND: Autologous formulations rich in bioactive proteins promote cutaneous tissue regeneration. This case report describes our experiences with a platelet-based autologous formulation in the management of a hard-to-heal and severe gunshot wound. CASE: A healthy, 34-year-old man suffered an accidental gunshot wound of his right foot. After cleansing with saline and application of vacuum-assisted closure therapy for a period of 5 weeks, the resulting full-thickness wound had a surface area of 20 cm and did not show progress toward closure despite ongoing treatment...
