OBJECTIVE: To assess whether negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) reduced complications such as wound infection, dehiscence, seroma/hematoma, skin necrosis/blistering, and bleeding compared with non-NPWT treatments. METHODS: This meta-analysis involved randomized clinical trials of NPWT compared with non-NPWT on surgical wound healing. The main outcome was surgical site infections; secondary outcomes were dehiscence, seroma/hematoma, skin necrosis/blistering, bleeding, and reoperation...

OBJECTIVE: Researchers analyzed chronic wounds treated with 2% hydrogel to determine whether the presence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is related to the presence of clinical signs of infection. METHODS: Thirty-five patients were recruited for this descriptive study using a quantitative approach. Staphylococcus aureus was identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Antibiotic susceptibility was determined using a disk diffusion test according to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute standards...
