Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) can stimulate wound healing. However, consistent delivery of bFGF has many disadvantages. To decrease their instability and diffusible, we introduced chitin-binding domain (ChtBD) into bFGF. Two expression plasimids were constructed. The first one (named bFGF) contained bFGF (154 amino acids), the second (named ChtBD-bFGF) contained bFGF and the ChtBD (54 amino acids). ChtBD was derived from chitinase A1 (ChiA1) of Bacillus circulans WL-12. The recombinant protein ChtBD-bFGF had the same biological activity as bFGF in promoting fibroblast proliferation...

Polysaccharides including pectin, alginate and chitosan are fabricated into dressings of micrometer-scaled architecture (micro- fiber or particle) and widely applied in wound treatments clinically. This work characterized and compared the properties of electrospun nanofibrous dressings of these polysaccharides. We found that although the three polysaccharide nanofiber mats had comparable mechanical strength and vapour permeability, the pectinate nanofiber mat could absorb 1.2 times and 3.6 times more exudates than the alginate and chitosan nanofiber mats, respectively, within less time...

In this investigation, we prepare a self-healable polyelectrolyte film via crosslinking the cationically charged chitosan (Cts) with anionically modified bacterial cellulose (BC), which is a green source of nano-filler. This polyelectrolyte film is able to show dynamic self-healing activity at physiological pH condition via adapting ionic interaction, a state of non-covalent bond. BC was prepared using Glucanoacetobacter xylinus (MTCC7795) bacteria and after that its surface was modified with anionic poly(acrylic acid) using "grafting from" technique...

This study aimed to prepare antibacterial wound dressings based on collagen and linalool/oxidized amylose inclusion complex. Encapsulation with oxidized amylose was used as an effective way to introduce linalool into collagen matrix. Our results showed that the content of linalool in the composite dressings was efficiently increased thanks to the solubilization effect of oxidized amyloses. The developed composite dressings possessed porous structure. They had abilities to keep the wound in moist environment and meanwhile prevent the excess exudates accumulation...

BACKGROUND: Bone-exposed wounds with intact or defected periosteum are difficult to heal. To provide relevant experimental evidence for guidance of clinical therapy, we established a rabbit model to compare the efficacies of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and conventional guaze dressing therapy on the healing of cranial bone-exposed wounds. METHODS: Full-thickness excisional circular wounds of 2.0 cm in diameter with exposed bones covered with or without periosteum were created at the parietal regions in 88 rabbits that were further randomly divided into the following treatment groups: periosteum-intact wounds treated with conventional vaseline gauze dressings (P + Control group), periosteum-intact wounds treated with NPWT (P + NPWT group), periosteum-lacking wounds treated with conventional vaseline gauze dressings (P-Control group), and periosteum-lacking wounds treated with NPWT (P-NPWT group)...

This case report documents a rare case of a subgaleal pneumocele occurring more than 20 years after cochlear implantation. On presentation, the presence of air under the scalp followed vigorous nose blowing was observed. The patient was treated conservatively with a pressure dressing, which resulted in complete resolution of the surgical emphysema. Only a handful of such cases have been reported in the literature. Most of these cases occur early after cochlear implantation. Our case is even more unique as it occurred 24 years following implantation and presented with a painless swelling associated with deterioration in cochlear implant performance...

Manuka honey (MH) is used as an antibacterial agent in bioactive wound dressings via direct impregnation onto a suitable substrate. MH provides unique antibacterial activity when compared with conventional honeys, owing partly to one of its constituents, methylglyoxal (MGO). Aiming to investigate an antibiotic-free antimicrobial strategy, we studied the antibacterial activity of both MH and MGO (at equivalent MGO concentrations) when applied as a physical coating to a nonwoven fabric wound dressing. When physically coated on to a cellulosic hydroentangled nonwoven fabric, it was found that concentrations of 0...

Trigeminal trophic syndrome (TTS) is a condition whereby persistent facial ulceration presents consequent to central or peripheral insult to the trigeminal nerve. Lesions are created by repetitive self-inflicted manipulation and trauma of dysaesthetic skin within the trigeminal dermatome. We discuss four cases with aetiologies varied from presumed microvascular compromise to resection of cerebral meningioma, cerebrovascular accident, and herpes zoster ophthalmicus. We discuss the management of the under-recognised associated periocular skin ulcerations that result from physical manipulation of dysesthic skin and prove to be persistent and challenging to treat...

To describe the novel use of a bilayer dermal substitute to reconstruct exenterated orbits. A retrospective chart review was performed in the practices of two surgeons (RET and PDL) of all patients who had undergone orbital exenteration between April 2014 and June 2016 and whose subsequent reconstruction included lining the socket with Integra bilayer. Patient demographics, pathologic diagnoses, surgical and post-operative complications, graft integrity, and patient acceptance were recorded. The charts of 7 patients (4 men and 3 women, ages 60-87 years) were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: While studies have shown that postoperative wound complications can predispose to deep infection following orthopedic surgery, the best form of skin closure has not been elucidated. Furthermore, the unique risks and benefits of each type of wound closure have not been studied. The goal of this study is to present the diagnosis and treatment of patients with allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) from 2-octyl cyanoacrylate, a skin adhesive commonly used in wound closure. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients with ACD to 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (Prineo, Ethicon, NJ) following elective orthopedic surgeries from 2013 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed; this occurred in 29 of 6088 units of Prineo used at our institution, for an estimated incidence of 0...

BACKGROUND: Retained central venous catheter guidewires are never events. Currently, preventative techniques rely on clinicians remembering to remove the guidewire. However, solutions solely relying upon humans to prevent error inevitably fail. A novel locked procedure pack was designed to contain the equipment required for completing the procedure after the guidewire should have been removed: suture, suture holder, and antimicrobial dressings. The guidewire is used as a key to unlock the pack and to access the contents; thereby, the clinician must remove the guidewire from the patient to complete the procedure...

The most common wound care procedures (WPCs) performed on open wounds are dressing changes and wound cleansing. Dressing changes cause moderate to severe pain in 74% of patients, nearly half (36%) of whom experience severe pain (rated as 8-10 on a 10-point numeric rating scale). The purpose of this paper is to propose a model of clinically accessible factors that can be tested in order to develop a clinical tool to identify which patients are likely to experience high intensity pain during nonoperative WCPs, such as dressing changes...
