HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS: We report on a 83-year-old female patient which suffered from a chronic ulcer of the right leg for several years. She has been treated with standard wound dressings under the diagnosis of an ulcer due to chronic venous insufficiency. INVESTIGATIONS AND DIAGNOSIS: A first biopsy showed a lower leg dermatitis and dermatosclerosis due to the chronic venous insufficiency. Not till a second biopsy was taken in the course of the disease, a sqamous cell carcinoma could be diagnosed...

HINTERGRUND: Die Necrobiosis lipoidica (NL) ist eine seltene, granulomatöse inflammatorische Erkrankung der Haut unklarer Pathophysiologie mit potentieller Assoziation zum Diabetes mellitus. Weitere relevante Kofaktoren und Komorbiditäten wurden bislang kontrovers diskutiert. PATIENTEN UND METHODIK: Differenziert ausgewertet wurden die Diagnosis-related-Groups (DRG)-Daten aller Patienten, die 2012 stationär in Deutschland behandelt und mit der Haupt- und Nebendiagnose NL kodiert wurden...

BACKGROUND: One of the most significant, and growing, challenges in modern medicine, i.e. the treatment of chronic wounds, is marked by nonuniform data. This concerns both prevalence and incidence of chronic dermatosis, in particular venous ulcers (ulcus cruris), as well as the impact on the health-related quality of life, and practical and economic parameters of the success of different therapies. PURPOSE: The aim of this work is to examine the epidemiology of chronic wounds, in particular age-associated venous ulcers, their impact on health-related quality of life, the treatment regimen, and practical and economic parameters of the success of different therapies...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a frequent human pathogen that increasingly causes chronic infections of nonhealing wounds. Here we present the 6.8 Mb draft genome of strain WS394, a multidrug-resistant chronic ulcer isolate that exhibited outstanding high cell cytotoxicity despite defective secretion of exotoxin U, suggesting a habitat-dependent adaptation process.

Complete knee dislocation is a rare and severe injury and usually follows high-energy trauma. Non-traumatic knee dislocations are exceedingly rare, while severe overweight appears to be the main cause of the knee dislocation. We here report on a spontaneous knee dislocation in a patient with severe osteoarthritis of the left knee. A 68-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for an elective total knee replacement. One year prior to admission, a planned joint replacement was not performed due to an existing ulcus cruris...

OBJECTIVE: The increasing number of elderly and chronically ill patients is currently stressing healthcare systems. One of the solutions for reaching an economically and socially viable solution is exploiting the benefits of modern technologies. This article presents an innovative mobile teledermatology program for assisting both the therapy and the aftercare of patients suffering from skin diseases. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The system is based on store-and-forward teledermatology and consists of two main components: (1) an application implemented on the mobile phone in order to enable patients to transmit both skin image data and biofeedback information and (2) an online portal for the care providers...

BACKGROUND: Venous ulcers (ulcus cruris venosum) are a common chronic disease that requires continuing treatment and significantly influences a patient's way of life. The therapeutic effects of the ointment Herbadermal on epithelialization and microbial flora of venous ulcers in 25 patients (10 men and 15 women) were tested over a 7-week period. The major components of the ointment are extracts of garlic, St. John's wort, and calendula. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The patients were over 18 years of age, with ulceration of the lower leg no longer than 2 months or recurrent ulceration during the last 6 months...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Chronic venous ulcer (CVU), a disease of high incidence, is one of the most serious chronic venous insufficiency complications. It has been estimated that there are 1%-2% of adults with CVU deriving a high social significance. The aim of this study was to, using the clinical experience, determine the influence of subcutaneous paratibial fasciotomy (SPF) on the course and the treatment outcome of CVU. METHODS: From February 2006 to September 2009 SPF was applied in a group of 43 patients treated for CVU along with other standard methods of treatment, and its influence on the course of ulcus cruris was followed up regarding the control group of another 43 patients treated with standard methods with no paratibial fasciotomy...

BACKGROUND: Vacuum assisted closure (VAC-therapy) is a well established method in nearly all surgical disciplines. The aim is to present the efficiency of vacuum assisted closure in the treatment of acute and chronic wounds in patients admitted in the department of vascular surgery. METHODS: Within the year 2008 there were 59 patients (44 men, 15 women) treated with VAC therapy in our Department of Vascular surgery (Landshut, Germany). VAC was used 22x (37.28 %) in therapy of ulcus cruris (venous, arterial, mixed genesis), 15x (25...

INTRODUCTION: Treatment of venous ulcerations should be based on etiopathogenetic characteristics. Previous biochemical, histological and clinical investigations show that there are two types of venous ulcerations: caused by superficial venous insufficiency (SU) and by deep venous insufficiency or obstruction (DU). Both types include communicative (perforate) vein incompetence. Different procedures are used to block pathological blood reflux and they depend on the type of ulceration. OBJECTIVE: Aim of the study was to evaluate short-term and long-term follow-up of different surgical procedures in superficial, communicant and deep veins that depend on the type of ulceration...

INTRODUCTION: Health care insurers in Germany pay 5 billion Euros annually in materials alone for pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and ulcus cruris. With such figures it is necessary to consider, economic aspects of treatment. METHODS: Due to the lack of evidence-based data on wound treatment costs, we investigated available studies for an effect on treatment costs when standard moist wound therapy was compared with alternative methods. Suited medical parameters are calculated and compared...

Prolidase deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder that is associated with chronic cutaneous ulcers, mental retardation, unusual facial appearance, skeletal deformities, joint dislocations, hematological anomalies, splenomegaly, and chronic infections. The most typical finding is chronic, recurrent leg ulcers appearing in early childhood. Prolidase (peptidase-D) is necessary for collagen biosynthesis and its deficiency leads to impairment in connective tissue of the skin, capillaries, and lymphatic vessels...
