A new study finds that treatment with autologous platelet-rich plasma may be an effective means of accelerating pressure ulcer healing.Wounds
CONCLUSIONS: The onset rate of complications given by the use of prone position in ARDS patients is similar to data reported by previous literature. The implementation of a dedicated protocol in specialized centers and the involvement of 5 trained and skilled professionals while moving the patient in the prone position are recommended to prevent the occurrence of similar adverse events.

AbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of photobiomodulation (PBM) by dual-wavelength low-power lasers on the healing and bacterial bioburden of pressure ulcer (PU) models. Twenty-five male Swiss mice were divided into five equal groups. Ischemia reperfusion cycles were employed to cause PU formation by the external application of magnetic plates. Immediately after wounding, a suspension ofPantoea agglomerans was applied at the base of all the wounds of the infected groups, using a calibrated pipette. PBM (simultaneous emission at 660 and 808 nm, 142.8 J/cm2, in continuous wave emission mode) ...
This study aimed to evaluate the effect of peppermint gel on the prevention of pressure injuries in patients with head trauma admitted to neurosurgical intensive care units. DESIGN: This double blind, randomized, controlled clinical trial study was conducted on 150 patients with head trauma admitted to the ICU. Using sealed envelopes, patients were assigned randomly into two intervention (n = 75) and control (n = 75) groups. SETTING: The study was conducted in the ICUs of a university hospital and a general hospital in Shiraz, Iran. INTERVENTION: The intervention group received peppermint gel three t...

Abstract Healing in wounds like pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and arterial insufficiency ulcers is immensely hampered and causes both economic burden and morbidity to patients. These wounds face plethora of hostile conditions like elevated reactive oxygen species (ROS), impaired angiogenesis, senescent fibroblast and deficient stem cells that significantly diminish the probability of self-healing in these wounds. Adipose-derived stem cell therapy (ADSC) presents a promising approach to achieve efficient healing in such cases. To address the complex scenario of chronic wounds, we propose a combin...
ConclusionsOur study failed to prove that VAC therapy is significantly superior to CBD for all the variable studied. Because VAC therapy has some positive effects, however, we recommend further development of this negative-pressure wound treatment, rather than the termination of its use.
ConclusionThe combination use could enhance the recovery of DFUs, shorten the treatment duration, and reduce the pain during treatment.
ConclusionThis overview illustrated that either systematic reviews or the included RCTs had wide variety of quality and heterogeneity in order to provide high level of evidence. Hence, well-designed RCTs as well as meta-analysis are required to shade the light on different aspects of NPWT.
This study suggests that the concentrated secretome of human MSCs can reverse the inhibitory effect of hypoxia and low serum on keratinocyte proliferation and migration. This phenomenon may contribute to the beneficial effects of hMSC-CM on wound healing in vivo. PMID: 31761327 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionInguinal lymphocele that is not reabsorbed or does not resolve with conservative treatment should be surgically treated. Lymphocele excision with ligation of lymphatic vessels, followed by negative pressure wound therapy appears to be a safe and effective approach.
