Chronic wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers, impact the lives of millions of people worldwide. These types of wounds represent a significant physical, social and financial burden to both patients and health care systems. Wound care has made great progress in recent years as a result of the critical research performed in academic, clinical and industrial settings. However, there has been relatively little translation of basic research discoveries into nov...

To provide information on risk factors associated with pressure ulcers (PrUs), including suspected deep tissue injury (sDTI), in nursing home residents in the United States.This continuing education activity is intended for physicians and nurses with an interest in skin and wound care.After participating in this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:1. Examine the literature related to risk factors for the development of PrUs.2. Compare risk factors associated with the p...

In the last decade, the association of microbial biofilm with delay or nonhealing of wounds has become widely accepted and intensely studied. The primary characteristics of microbial biofilm that have lead to this focus are its ability to quickly regenerate; its extremely high tolerance to antimicrobial agents; and its ability to compromise would healing, even when present at microbial loads well below levels traditionally considered infected and when classic clinical signs of infection are abse...

Chronic wounds are a significant health problem in the United States, with annual associated costs exceeding $20 billion annually. Traditional wound care consists of surgical debridement, manual irrigation, moisture retentive dressings, and topical and/or systemic antimicrobial therapy. However, despite progress in the science of wound healing, the prevalence and incidence of chronic wounds and their complications are escalating. The presence & complexity of bacterial biofilms in chronic wounds ...

This study sought to determine if a parsimonious pressure ulcer (PU) predictive model could be identified specific to acute care to enhance the current PU risk assessment tool (Braden Scale) utilized within veteran facilities. Factors investigated include: diagnosis of gangrene, anemia, diabetes, malnutrition, osteomyelitis, pneumonia/pneumonitis, septicemia, candidiasis, bacterial skin infection, device/implant/graft complications, urinary tract infection, paralysis, senility, respiratory failu...

Most wound care providers are aware of the principles embodied in the concept of 'wound bed preparation', which is an integrated approach that seeks to enhance healing of acute and chronic wounds by optimising four key aspects of a wound bed: 1) tissue debridement; 2) inflammation/infection; 3) moisture levels; and 4) epithelial edge healing. Ideally, treatment strategies should simultaneously address each of these four aspects. This often leads to combining advanced topical and/or systemic ther...

Many chronic wounds fail to heal with conventional therapy, resulting in disability and impaired quality of life. New technologies using recombinant growth factors, autologous growth factors, or bioengineered skin—tissue substitutes have been shown to be effective, but these treatments are costly. An effective, low-cost treatment to improve healing of chronic wounds is needed. The molecular environment of chronic wounds, like many other chronic inflammatory diseases, contains abnormally high lev...
