OBJECTIVE Hyaluronic acid (HA) and its derivatives are used for chronic wounds, but evidence of their effectiveness remains unclear. The aim of this study was to provide more updated evidence for the effectiveness of HA (or its derivatives) compared with placebo or other agents for promoting healing in chronic wounds. METHOD The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE via Ovid Online, CINAHL and the EMBASE via EBSCO host databases were searched. Drug companies and experts in… 

Application of Hyaluronic Acid Matrix Membrane in Wound Healing

TLDR
The promising results of HYAFF encouraged us to further assess its efficacy in treating chronic lower extremity ulcerations in complex patients with multiple medical comorbidities, and two cases demonstrating the tissue regeneration effect of an HA 3D-scaffold membrane (Hyalomatrix PA) are presented.

TLDR
There is a limited high‐quality evidence of effectiveness in most adjuvant therapies on wound healing and recurrence, and the implication for practice is that current management guidelines be followed.

Hyaluronic acid with antioxidants improve wound healing in rats

TLDR
Improved wound healing in HA treated rats within 7 days is observed, and significant differences in TGF-β and IGF levels among HA groups between days 3 and 21, and among control groups between Days 0 and 21 are found.

Therapeutic compression materials and wound dressings for chronic venous insufficiency: A comprehensive review.

TLDR
A systematic review of polymer-based therapeutic compression materials and wound dressings used in prophylaxis and treatment of chronic venous insufficiency could contribute to the design and application of new functional polymer materials and dressings to enhance the efficiency of CVI treatments, thereby facilitating patients' self-care ability and long-term health improvement.

Contribution of Topical Agents to Wound Healing

TLDR
The description and mode of action of topical antiseptic agents, including silver and sodium hypochlorite solution, to control the spread of microorganisms and the value of hyaluronic acid for wound healing are found.

Tissue-Engineered Skin Substitutes

TLDR
Commonly used skin substitutes include semisynthetic dermal scaffolds, allogenic cell constructs, and cellular and decellularized allogenic or xenogenic sources.

Standardized reporting of amnion and amnion/chorion allograft data for wound care

TLDR
Analysis of membrane supernatants show that dehydrated, sterilized amnion and amnions/chorion elute factors that are conducive to wound healing, which are available to recipient tissues, can be reported as a function of available factors per square centimeter of tissue.

Investigation of an injectable gold nanoparticle extracellular matrix

TLDR
In vitro work provided evidence of biocompatibility with a propensity to reduce intracellular ROS and an ability to mitigate apoptosis of chondrocyte cells stimulated with IL-1β, a known apoptosis inducing cytokine and it was concluded that an injectable AuNP-ECM may have the able to mitigate inflammation and apoptosis.

TLDR
It was found in the vast majority of randomized controlled trials (eight of nine) that HA derivatives significantly improved the healing of wounds vs. traditional therapies or placebo.

RCT to evaluate a hyaluronic acid containing gauze pad in leg ulcers of venous or mixed aetiology.

TLDR
The significant differences in favour of HA gauze pad regarding peri-ulcerous skin changes (oedema, purpura and maceration) may suggest a trend for HA gauzes pad to have a better acceptability than the reference HC dressing.

Efficacy and safety of hyaluronic acid in treatment of leg ulcers: a double-blind RCT.

TLDR
Hyaluronic acid cream was significantly more effective than the neutral vehicle in the local treatment of leg ulcers of venous or mixed aetiology, in terms of wound size reduction and reducing the burden of pain, with a good safety profile.

Efficacy and safety of a gauze pad containing hyaluronic acid in treatment of leg ulcers of venous or mixed origin: a double‐blind, randomised, controlled trial

TLDR
HA gauze pad, in local treatment of venous leg ulcers, was significantly more effective than the neutral vehicle on wound size reduction, healed ulcers rate and pain management with a good safety profile.

A controlled study of the activity of hyaluronic acid in the treatment of venous leg ulcers

TLDR
In this multicentre controlled study, the efficacy and safety of hyaluronic acid is evaluated in 50 patients with venous leg ulcers in comparison with Dextranomer, the product of choice for this ind...

An evaluation of Hyalofill-F plus compression bandaging in the treatment of chronic venous ulcers.

TLDR
Hyalofill-F plus compression bandaging resulted in an earlier and greater decrease in ulcer area compared with non-adherent gauze plus compressionBandaging, therapy supporting its use in the treatment of chronic venous ulcers.

OASIS® wound matrix versus Hyaloskin® in the treatment of difficult‐to‐heal wounds of mixed arterial/venous aetiology

TLDR
Overall, OASIS® was superior to Hyaloskin® for the treatment of patients with mixed A/V ulcers, a population in which standard treatment options largely consist of moist wound dressings and compression therapy is typically not an option.

Preliminary Clinical Study Using a Novel Wound Dressing Composed of Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen Containing EGF

TLDR
It is demonstrated that EGF-wound dressing was beneficial in the treatment of various skin defects and infection control and macroscopic appearance.

HYAFF 11-based autologous dermal and epidermal grafts in the treatment of noninfected diabetic plantar and dorsal foot ulcers: a prospective, multicenter, controlled, randomized clinical trial.

TLDR
The autologous tissue-engineered treatment exhibited improved healing in dorsal ulcers when compared with the current standard dressing, and may be useful in patients for whom the total off-loading cast is not recommended and only a less effective off- loading device can be applied.
