 The use of electrical stimulation has been studied in a variety of wounds emphasizing different variables with regard to provision of therapy. The purpose of this prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study was to evaluate the effect of high-voltage electrical stimulation (HVES) on nonhealing, lower-extremity, Stage II and Stage III(More)
The aim of this study was to compare five types of compression therapy in venous leg ulcers (intermittent pneumatic vs. stockings vs. multi layer vs. two layer short stretch bandages vs. Unna boots). Primary study endpoints were analysis of changes of the total ulcer surface area, volume and linear dimensions inside observed groups. The secondary end points(More)
Compression therapy--including inelastic, elastic, and intermittent pneumatic compression--is the standard of care for venous ulcers (VLUs) and chronic venous insufficiency, but there is no consensus in the literature regarding the most effective type of compression therapy. A prospective, randomized, clinical pilot study was conducted among 70 patients(More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the usefulness of therapeutic ultrasound for healing of venous leg ulcers. METHODS Eighty-one patients were included in this study. Patients in groups 1 and 2 were treated surgically. Patients in groups 3 and 4 were treated conservatively. Patients in groups 1 and 3 were additionally treated with the ultrasound (1 MHz, 0.5 W/cm(2))(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate early and long-term results of physical methods in the treatment of venous leg ulcers. METHOD In group A after surgical operation, 40 patients were treated with the high-voltage stimulation (HVS) (100 µs, 100 Hz, 100 V) and drug therapy. In group B after operation, 37 patients were treated with ultrasound (0.5 W/cm(2), 1 MHz) and(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this paper was to describe the impact of the sonotherapy and compression therapy on enhancement of healing venous leg ulcers after surgical treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS Three comparative groups of patients--A, B and C were made at random from patients with venous leg ulcers, which had been earlier operated by modified Babcock'(More)
Background.Avascular necrosis of the femoral head continues to represent a major challenge for the orthopaedist and trauma surgeon. A fully effective method of treatment is yet to be introduced. After femoral head collapse, only total hip replacement can help the patient. Our study aims to assess the effects of treatment of avascular necrosis of the femoral(More)
UNLABELLED Venous ulcers are prevalent, challenging wounds; their incidence is rising with the increasing age of the general population. Physical mo- dalities often are used to help heal these chronic wounds. A prospective study was conducted to investigate the application of high-voltage stimu- lation (HVS), ultrasound therapy (US), low-level laser therapy(More)
UNLABELLED  The present study sought to estimate the hemodynamic effects inside wounds after applying infrared thermography. Clinical results were analyzed to evaluate any correspondence with hemodynamic events occurring inside the wounds. METHODS Group 1 consisted of 20 patients with venous leg ulcers (12 women, 8 men). Patients from group 1(More)
 The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of therapeutic ultrasound (US) for healing of venous leg ulcers in surgically treated patients. Study endpoints were the number of completely healed wounds and the clinical parameters predicting the outcome. Seventy patients with venous leg ulcers were included in this study, and ultimately(More)
