Multiple bacterial species reside in chronic wounds: a longitudinal study
TLDR
The study demonstrated that the chronic wound is colonised by multiple bacterial species and that once they are established many of them persist in the wound.
A novel approach to the antimicrobial activity of maggot debridement therapy
TLDR
Lucifensin showed antimicrobial activities comparable to other defensins and could have potential as a future drug candidate scaffold, for redesign for other applications besides the topical treatment of infected wounds.
Abstinence From Smoking Reduces Incisional Wound Infection: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Wound infections were significantly fewer in abstinent smokers compared with continuous smokers after 4, 8, and 12 weeks after randomization and no difference between transdermal nicotine patch and placebo was found.
Models for use in wound healing research: A survey focusing on in vitro and in vivo adult soft tissue
TLDR
This review article focuses on those systems that are most widely used for studies on adult soft tissue healing, including in vitro and in vivo, and discusses advantages and disadvantages of each.
Study of peristomal skin disorders in patients with permanent stomas.
TLDR
It was found that peristomal skin disorders were higher for participants with an ileostomy and urostomy than in those with a colostomy, and more education and perhaps regular, annual follow-up visits at local stoma care clinics are needed.
Clinical performance of a new silver dressing, Contreet Foam, for chronic exuding venous leg ulcers.
TLDR
Contreet Foam was found to be safe and performed well when used in the treatment of delayed-healing chronic venous leg ulcers, combining effective antibacterial properties with excellent exudate management.
Ectopic localization of matrix metalloproteinase-9 in chronic cutaneous wounds.
TLDR
The overall activity of gelatinases M MP-9 and MMP-2 was not increased in chronic wounds compared to normally healing wound tissues, and chronic nonhealing wounds may not be caused by excessive gelatinase activity, but are distinguished from healing wounds by an unfavorable distribution and persistance of MMPs.
Compression bandage as treatment for ulcers induced by intramuscular self-injection of paraffin oil.
TLDR
L Laboratory examinations showed increased infection parameters with leukocytes 20.2 × 10 9 9 and enlarged painless lymphatic nodes found in the neck, but none in the axillae.
Double-blind, right/left comparison of calcipotriol and betamethasone valerate in treatment of psoriasis vulgaris
TLDR
Though long-term results are not yet available, calcipotriol holds great promise as an antipsoriatic agent.
Effect of Topical Autologous Platelet-Rich Fibrin versus No Intervention on Epithelialization of Donor Sites and Meshed Split-Thickness Skin Autografts: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Epithelialization of donor wounds or the interstices of autografts was not significantly influenced by platelet-rich fibrin treatment, and no statistically significant differences in macroscopic epithelialization were found for donor wound or autogRAFTs.
