Overutilization of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is commonplace and primarily associated with outpatient wound care. While the number of hospitals providing HBOT is at an all-time high, the number of those willing to treat patients in immediate need is at an all-time low. Huge areas of the country, including major population areas, are now completely devoid of 24/7 HBOT availability and inpatient access. Purchasers of healthcare, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, have become increasingly concerned to the point that several strategies have been introduced to constructively deal with this issue...

OBJECTIVE: To report a case of refractory ulcerated necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) with significant response to treatment with topical tacrolimus. SUBJECT: A 55-year-old woman without diabetes and with a previous history of NL presented to the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Hyperbaric and Advanced Wound Healing Center of NYU Langone Medical Center, New York, with bilateral lower-leg ulcerations resistant to wound healing techniques at other institutions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Repeat biopsy performed at the author's institution confirmed the diagnosis of NL...

OBJECTIVE: To assess healing outcomes in venous leg ulcers (VLUs) treated with a combination of collagen, oxidized regenerated cellulose, and silver in conjunction with standard of care (SOC; intervention group) compared with SOC alone (control group). Standard of care included ADAPTIC nonadhering dressing (Acelity, San Antonio, Texas) and compression. DESIGN AND SETTING: Randomized controlled trial that followed patients in 3 US facilities for 12 weeks or until complete healing...

Sean Taylor Dowling, Brian Wai Lin
OBJECTIVE: A recently described technique proposes a simple method to achieve permanent hemostasis of distal fingertip dermal avulsion injuries. It is simple to learn and easy to perform with readily available materials found in most emergency departments. However, long-term outcomes for patients treated with this technique have not yet been evaluated. A primary objective of the current article is to provide safety data for the technique using an off-label product indication. SETTING: Emergency department of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, San Francisco, California...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the reliability of a skin diagnostic device, the SD202 (Courage+Khazaka GmBH, Cologne, Germany), in assessing hydration and erythema of periwound skin and pressure injury-prone areas. DESIGN: Intrarater reliabilities from 3 cross-sectional and prospective studies are reported. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Patients attending an outpatient, nurse-led wound dressing clinic (n = 16), a podiatrist-led high-risk foot clinic (n = 17), and residents (n = 38) at a single residential aged-care facility...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this retrospective case series was to determine whether a long-wave infrared thermography (LWIT, or thermal imaging) camera can detect specific temperature changes that are associated with wound infection and inflammation as compared with normal control subjects with similar anatomical wound locations. DESIGN: A retrospective, observational, collective, multiple case series of patients who underwent digital and thermal imaging of wounds in various states...
