INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of changing the application of Japanese honey to a hydrocolloid dressing (HCD) in between the inflammatory and proliferative phases on cutaneous wound healing in 8-week-old, BALB/cCrSlc male mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Mice were divided into 4 groups: acacia honey followed by a HCD, buckwheat flour honey followed by a HCD, Chinese milk vetch honey followed by a HCD, and a HCD alone (control group)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this meta-analysis was to estimate the incidence of pressure ulcers (PUs) in the emergency department (ED). METHODS: The authors searched PubMed, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases for all time leading up to February 2016. The incidence of PUs in the ED were collected, and the pooled incidence with 95% confidence interval (CI) was calculated by meta-analysis. RESULTS: Six studies with 8 cohorts were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: Decellularized, dehydrated human amniotic membrane (DDHAM) is an extracellular matrix devoid of cells, cell debris, and growth factors. This study examines the effect of cell attachment to the DDHAM and the induced cellular responses. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The cell types employed in this study were human dermal fibroblasts (HDF), human epithelial keratinocytes (HEK), and human dermal microvascular endothelial cells (HDMEC), all of which play critical roles in the wound healing process...

INTRODUCTION: This study investigated the application of selective sheepskin acellular dermal matrix (ADM), combined with the anticoagulant heparin, in the wound-healing treatment of deep second-degree burns (DSDB). METHODS: A DSDB model was established, and the test animals were randomly divided into 4 groups: iodophor gauze (IG), pig ADM (PA), selective sheepskin ADM (SSA), and heparinized selective sheepskin ADM (HSSA).The microcirculation of the wound surface, pathological structures, healing rates, and fibroblast apoptosis rates were observed at different times in each group...

OBJECTIVE: Burns are complicated traumatic injuries caused by several physical or chemical factors. Plants with a wide range of secondary metabolites, with valuable properties like antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, can be a promising source of wound healing agents. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Effects of hydromethanolic extracts of Lythrum salicaria and Hypericum scabrum, individually and in combination, were assessed in second-degree burn wounds in rats in comparison to a white oleaginous base (negative control) and silver sulfadiazine (positive control)...

BACKGROUND: Cold plasma skin welding is a novel technology that bonds skin edges through soldering without the use of synthetic materials or conventional wound approximation methods such as sutures, staples, or skin adhesives. The cold plasma welding system uses a biological solder applied to the edges of a skin incision, followed by the application of cold plasma energy. The objectives of this study were to assess the feasibility of a cold plasma welding system in approximating and fixating skin incisions compared with conventional methods and to evaluate and define optimal plasma welding parameters and histopathological tissue response in a porcine model...

A Morel-Lavallée lesion is a closed internal degloving injury resulting from a shearing force applied to the skin. The etiology of this condition may be motor vehicle accidents, falls, contact sports (ie, football, wrestling),1 and iatrogenic after mammoplasty or abdominal liposuction.2 Common sites of the lesions include the pelvis and/or thigh.3 Isolated Morel-Lavallée lesions without underlying fracture are likely to be missed, which result in chronicity. Management of this condition often requires extensive surgical procedures such as debridement, sclerotherapy, serial percutaneous drainage, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), and skin grafting...

BACKGROUND: Open wounds of the distal third of the leg and foot with exposed bone, fractures, and hardware are challenging wounds for which to achieve stable coverage. The orthopedic advances in lower extremity fracture management over the last 30 years have allowed a rethinking of the standard operative approach to close these complex wounds. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The ability of extracellular matrix (ECM) products to facilitate constructive remodeling of a wound seemed a reasonable approach for treatment, especially in patients who are often poor surgical candidates for more advanced reconstructive procedures...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to clinically evaluate the efficacy of a bacteria- and-fungi-binding mesh (BFBM) dressing to modify the bacterial load of pressure ulcers (PUs) of categories 3 and 4, when used as a wound contact layer (WCL) during negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). METHODS: This was an observational single-centre study in patients with PUs of categories 3 or 4, who were treated with NPWT. Patients were observed for 7 days and received NPWT at -80 mm Hg with the BFBM dressing as the WCL...

BACKGROUND: Objective assessment of wound dimensions is essential for tracking progression and determining treatment effectiveness. A reliability study was designed to establish intrarater and interrater reliability of a novel mobile 3-dimensional wound measurement (3DWM) device. METHODS: Forty-five wounds were assessed by 2 raters using a 3DWM device to obtain length, width, area, depth, and volume measurements. Wounds were also measured manually, using a disposable ruler and digital planimetry...

INTRODUCTION: Fournier's gangrene is a rare disease that affects the genital, abdominal, and perineal regions and leads to death if not treated promptly. CASE REPORT: A 42-year-old, obese woman presented to the authors' department affected by Fournier's gangrene. In order to treat her abdominal and genital regions, the authors performed a surgical debridement followed by combined therapy with antibiotics and topical negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) with instillation plus saline solution...

INTRODUCTION: Negative pressure wound therapy is a widely used method of wound dressing with various commercially available brands. The authors created the Hanikoda Method (HM) for effective wound bed preparation or definite wound closure. METHODS: In this case series, the authors discuss 8 different wound cases that presented to their Plastics Unit from January 2014 to June 2015. Patients with traumatic or infected wounds were selected for treatment with the HM...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated and compared the effects of antibiotic and steroid lavage on survival and cytokine levels in an experimental abdominal sepsis model. BACKGROUND: In abdominal sepsis, abdominal lavage with saline or antibiotic solutions is a well-documented intervention known to have positive impact on survival; however, the effects of steroid lavage in abdominal sepsis have not yet been investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-six Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups (n = 24)...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, a new technology for autologous epidermal harvesting has been developed to produce epidermal skin grafts (ESGs) for use over wounds. This technology employs negative pressure and heat to raise the epidermal skin layer, allowing for consistent and reproducible epidermal harvesting. The aim of this case series is to present the authors' experience using an automated, epidermal harvesting system to produce ESGs to treat wounds of patients with multiple comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: Antiseptics are indispensable for wound management and should focus not only on the efficacy in reducing the bacterial burden but also on how much they interfere in wound healing. In this study, the authors analyzed the direct effect of topical antiseptic agents on the microcirculation of intact human skin. METHODS: The perfusion dynamics were assessed before, and 10 minutes after, the volunteers' fingers of the right hand (n = 20) were immersed in the following solutions - octenidine dihydrochloride, polyhexanide, tea tree oil, and saline solution...
