Introduction Systematic reviews of high-quality randomised controlled trials are necessary to identify effective interventions to impact burn wound infection (BWI) outcomes. Evidence synthesis requires that BWI is reported in a consistent manner. Cochrane reviews investigating interventions for burns report that the indicators used to diagnose BWI are variable or not described, indicating a need to standardise reporting. BWI is complex and diagnosed by clinician judgement, informed by patient-re...

Background Indications for the use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) are broad and include prophylaxis for surgical site infections (SSIs). While existing evidence for the effectiveness of NPWT remains uncertain, new trials necessitated an updated review of the evidence for the effects of NPWT on postoperative wounds healing by primary closure. Objectives To assess the effects of negative pressure wound therapy for preventing surgical site infection in wounds healing through primary clos...

Background: Surgical wounds healing by secondary intention can be difficult and costly to manage and are profoundly under researched. This prospective inception, cohort study aimed to derive a better understanding of surgical wounds healing by secondary intention and to facilitate the design of future research investigating effective treatments. Objectives: To investigate the clinical characteristics of patients with surgical wounds healing by secondary intention and the surgeries that preceded ...

Abstract Background Researchers advocate developing empirically-derived prognostic models to predict pressure ulcer risk. However, there remains a scarcity of evidence about the performance and clinical value of these models. Objectives To identify and describe empirically-derived models for predicting pressure ulcer risk; to assess the predictive performance of these models; and to evaluate their clinical impact in reducing pressure ulcer incidence. Methods We performed a comprehensive database...

Abstract Background People with altered skin status are conventionally considered to have a higher risk of developing new ulcers. However, the evidence underpinning this potentially prognostic relationship is unclear. Objectives To systematically review the evidence for the prognostic association of skin status with pressure ulcer risk. Methods We performed a comprehensive electronic database search in February 2017 to identify longitudinal studies that considered skin status in multivariable an...

Diabetes mellitus is a common condition that leads to high blood glucose concentrations, with around 2.8 million people affected in the UK (approximately 4.3% of the population). Some people with diabetes can develop ulcers on their feet. These wounds can take a long time to heal, be painful and become infected. Ulceration of the foot in people with diabetes can also lead to a higher risk of amputation of parts of the foot or leg. Generally, people with diabetes are at a higher risk of lower-lim...

Background Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) are the most common cause of leg ulceration, affecting 1 in 100 adults. VLUs may take many months to heal (25% fail to heal). Estimated prevalence is between 1% and 3% of the elderly population. Compression is the mainstay of treatment and few additional therapies exist to improve healing. Two previous trials have indicated that low-dose aspirin, as an adjunct to standard care, may improve healing time, but these trials were insufficiently robust. Aspirin is a...
