BACKGROUND: Lymphedema is a condition of localized protein-rich swelling from damaged or malfunctioning lymphatics. Because the immune system is compromised, there is a high risk of infection. Infection in patients with lymphedema may present in a variety of ways. OBJECTIVE: The goals of this review were to standardize the terminology of skin breakdown in the context of lymphedema, synthesize the available information to create best practice recommendations in support of the American Lymphedema Framework Project update to its Best Practices document, and create recommendations for further research...

Jae-A Jung, Seung-Kyu Han, Seong-Ho Jeong, Eun-Sang Dhong, Kang-Gyun Park, Woo-Kyung Kim
BACKGROUND: A new polyurethane foam dressing impregnated with 3% povidone-iodine (Betafoam; Genewell, Seoul, Korea) was recently developed based on the hypothesis that its physical properties, including improved moisture-retention capacity and antimicrobial activity, are at least as good as those achieved with the current foam dressings that contain silver, but also associated with reduced cost and cytotoxicity to host cells. The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the efficacy of Betafoam by comparing its physical properties, antimicrobial activity, and cytotoxicity with those of 3 silver foam dressings (Allevyn-Ag [Smith & Nephew, Hull, United Kingdom]; Mepilex-Ag [Mölnlycke Health Care, Gothenburg, Sweden]; and PolyMem-Ag [Ferris MFG Corp, Burr Ridge, Illinois]) used worldwide...

Bojan Krebs, Tomaž Jagrič
OBJECTIVE: Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is the most modern and sophisticated method of temporary abdominal closure. The aim of the study was to determine the significant predictors for mortality in patients with NPWT. SETTING: University Clinical Centre Maribor, Slovenia MATERIALS AND METHODS:: The authors performed a retrospective cohort study of all patients treated with NPWT between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2014. RESULTS: In the univariate analysis, the type of wound closure, more than 7 NPWT changes, the total days with NPWT, and time to wound closure were significantly associated with death of the patient...

GENERAL PURPOSE: To provide information from a review of the literature about chronic ulcers associated with tophaceous gout. TARGET AUDIENCE: This continuing education activity is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses with an interest in skin and wound care. LEARNING OBJECTIVES/OUTCOMES: After participating in this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:1. Identify the pathophysiology of tophaceous gout, its presentation, phases, and common comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: A fast and stable wound closure is important, especially for extended and unstable wounds found after burn injuries. Growth can regulate a variety of cellular processes, including those involved in wound healing. Growth differentiation factor 5 (GDF-5) can accelerate fibroblast cell migration, cell proliferation, and collagen synthesis, which are essential for wound healing. Nevertheless, no standardized evaluation of the effect of GDF-5 on the healing of full-thickness wounds has been published to date...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a blue light (405 nm) could inhibit the growth of Trichopyton mentagrophytes without using a photosensitizing material as part of the treatment protocol. DESIGN: Basic physiologic randomized trial using laboratory specimens (T mentagrophytes). INTERVENTIONS/METHODS: Plated on a growth medium, T mentagrophytes were exposed to 3 to 5 administrations of blue light at 20 J/cm over 28 hours. Following 7 days of incubation, colony-forming units were counted and compared with nonirradiated controls...

BACKGROUND: Amish patients show a demonstrated preference for traditional, herbal remedies over modern medical interventions such as skin grafting. One such remedy is a mixture of Burn & Wound Ointment (B & W Ointment; Holistic Acres, LLC; Newcomerstown, Ohio) and steeped burdock leaves. Although both have demonstrated some antimicrobial and wound healing properties, burdock and/or the combination of B & W Ointment and burdock has never been studied to determine its purported ability to reduce pain, prevent infection, and accelerate wound healing...
