OBJECTIVE: To identify patient- and procedure-related risk factors for surgical site infection following minor dermatological surgery. DATA SOURCES: The MEDLINE, Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Informit, and Scopus databases were searched for relevant literature on patient populations receiving minor surgery, where risk factors for surgical site infection were explicitly stated. STUDY SELECTION: Studies involving major dermatological surgery were excluded...

OBJECTIVE: Full-thickness hand burn surgery requires meticulous efforts to restore function, and aesthetics is paramount. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of fibrin sealant as a topical hemostatic agent and for graft fixation during skin grafting of hand burns. METHODS: This prospective cohort study enrolled 40 patients with hand burns from January 2013 to December 2016. They were all treated with excision and split-thickness skin graft and divided into the fibrin sealant with tourniquet group (20 patients) and epinephrine tumescence group (20 patients)...

This case report describes eradication of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae from an ischial pressure injury in a patient who underwent a 3-week course of nontoxic three-part combination local wound therapy. With this therapy, providers prevented systemic spread of this multidrug-resistant pathogen and avoided the nephrotoxicity associated with conventional triple antibiotic therapy.

Anne-Marie Salisbury, Steven L Percival
OBJECTIVE: To assess the biofilm prevention action of two wound dressings, a concentrated surfactant gel preserved with antimicrobials and a concentrated surfactant gel with 1% silver sulfadiazine. METHODS: The microorganisms Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin-resistant S aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterococcus faecalis were used. Several biofilm models were used whereby the surfaces of each model were coated with either the concentrated surfactant gel preserved with antimicrobials or the concentrated surfactant gel with SSD before biofilm growth...

This review of the literature updates and considers the evidence on incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD). Best practice strategies for the management of skin damage from IAD (both prevention and treatment) are provided. A mnemonic to help clinicians translate IAD evidence into practice is introduced. Workplace experiences supplement this evidence synthesis. Approaches to assist in translation of this knowledge and evidence into practice are also provided.

OBJECTIVE: To identify changes in body image in patients with surgical wound dehiscence. DESIGN AND SETTING: This cross-sectional, descriptive, analytical study was conducted in a university hospital and nursing care center in Brazil. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION: Sixty-one adult surgical patients of both genders from different inpatient wards or receiving outpatient care were selected. Forty-one participants had surgical wound dehiscence, and 20 had achieved complete wound healing (controls)...
