Wound management and the use of mouth rinse in mandibular third molar surgery.

Wound management and the use of mouth rinse in mandibular third molar surgery. Swiss Dent J. 2015;125(10):1085-93 Authors: Vlcek D, Razavi A, Kuttenberger JJ Abstract The aim of this survey was to assess the knowledge and practice of Swiss dentists regarding wound management and the use of mouth rinse in surgical removal of mandibular third molars (MTM). A postal survey was conducted among all 3,288 dentists who are members of the Swiss Dental Society (SSO) representing the majority of dentists in Switzerland. The questionnaire consisted of 13 questions with mostly multiple-choice answers. Demographic profile, surgical experience, the use of antibiotics, and wound management, i.e. wound closure and the use of mouth rinse were assessed. The response rate was 55%. Semi-closed (59.1%), closed (19%) and open wound management (11.7%) were applied most often. Semi-closed wound management was preferred in the German-speaking region (67%) and closed wound management was preferred in the French-speaking region (55%). For semi-closed wound healing, drains impregnated with terra-cortril (42%) and iodoform-Vaseline (40%) were used. For closed wound management, most dentists reported leaving the wound to heal with the blood clot only (60.5%). Most dentists (74.5%) prescribed chlorhexidine 0.2% (CHX) mouth rinse when performing MTM surgery and a combination of immediate preoperative and postoperative use was preferred. Semi-closed wound management with drain and CHX mo...

RodriguesAbstractBackgroundMany foundation year 1 and 2 doctors (FYs) have limited knowledge experience in wound management. Wound dressing formularies exist in many NHS Trusts, though awareness of and adherence to them by FYs is not known. This quality improvement study described baseline FY knowledge of wound management, and investigated whether this could be improved through educational intervention.MethodsA single-centre, prospective, baseline a...

Abstract Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a major complication of diabetes with high morbidity and mortality rates. Pathogenesis of DFUs is governed by a complex milieu of environmental and host factors. The empirical treatment is initially based on wound severity since culturing and profiling the antibiotic sensitivity of wound-associated microbes is time consuming. Hence, a thorough and rapid analysis of the microbial landscape is a major requirement towards devising evidence-based interventions. Towards this, 122 wound (100 diabetic and 22 non-diabetic) samples were sampled for their bacterial community structure u...

AbstractWound healing process is a natural and intricate response of the body to its injuries and includes a well ‐orchestrated sequence of biochemical and cellular phenomena to restore the integrity of skin and injured tissues. Complex nature and associated complications of burn wounds lead to an incomplete and prolonged recovery of these types of wounds. Among different materials and systems which have been used in treating the wounds, nanotechnology driven therapeutic systems showed a great opportunity to improvement and enhancement of the healing process of different type of wounds. The aim of this study is to provid...

CONCLUSIONS Current entry-level DPT curricula provide physical therapy students with adequate contact hours in wound care and the opportunity for clinical experiences. The instructors are seasoned physical therapists, and nearly half of them hold advanced certification in the content area. Further studies are warranted to investigate how physical therapists practice in wound management in various clinical settings.

Introduction: Paramalleolar bypass is one of the most effective treatment for critical limb threatening ischemia. In this bypass surgery, several skin incisions are made around the ankle where the skin is hard to extend; skin incision on the dorsum of forefoot for exposure of dorsalis pedis artery or skin incision posterior to the medial malleolus for exposure of posterior tibial artery, and skin incision for saphenous vein harvest from inside of the calf to the forefoot via the anterior to the medial malleolus.
