OBJECTIVE: To examine perfusion changes in the heel skin of individuals with and without diabetes mellitus to understand how skin is pathologically affected by diabetes mellitus. DESIGN AND SETTING: This case-control study was conducted at an academic hospital in Tuebingen, Germany. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION: A total of 30 subjects were enrolled in the study: 15 with known diabetes mellitus type 2 (7 women and 8 men; median age, 69.0 years; range, 54-82 years) and 15 without diabetes mellitus (4 women and 11 men; median age, 60...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the associated diseases, polyneuropathy correlates, and risk covariates of neuropathic plantar ulcers (PUs) and neuropathic arthropathies (NAs). DESIGN: The authors conducted a retrospective, observational study over 3.5 years of 69 patients with neuropathy, NA, or PUs seen in a wound clinic who also had a comprehensive neurologic evaluation and neurophysiologic testing. Comparisons were made to a population representative cohort of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM; n = 259)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Crohn disease-related anal fistulas are treated with debridement of fistulous tracts and the placement of noncutting setons (NCSs). However, to reduce the high recurrence rate, there is still a need to develop more effective treatment methods. OBJECTIVE: To compare NCS with vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) treatment. METHODS: Medical records of 47 patients with Crohn anal fistulas were retrospectively evaluated. They were divided into two groups (I, VAC; II, NCS), consisting of 24 and 23 patients, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: Maturation remains the least understood phase of wound healing; estimates of maturation time are broad and inaccurate. A more precise estimation of maturation time could influence scar therapy and give insight to the wound healing cascade. The objective of this study was to assess the mean time between onset and complete maturation of hypertrophic scars. METHODS: This retrospective study was performed in an outpatient clinic of the Maastricht University Medical Center exclusively focused on scar treatment; 361 patients with a hypertrophic scar were included between September 2010 and December 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the feasibility of a piloted wound care curriculum within a busy internal medicine (IM) curriculum. METHODS: This prospective pilot study was conducted with 89 IM residents at an academic teaching hospital. The residents were provided a 90-minute workshop in chronic wound care. They anonymously completed a clinical vignette to target practice behavior prior to the workshop. The workshop was mixture of didactic and hands-on practice of sharp debridement and wound dressing selection...

Martorell's ulcers are hard-to-heal leg ulcers typically accompanied by a significant elevation of blood pressure and severe pain. This case study examines the use of an innovative technology, wireless microcurrent stimulation, for the healing of a Martorell's ulcer. Using wireless microcurrent stimulation, study authors managed to reduce the size of a large Martorell's ulcer by 90% within 8 weeks. In this article, the case of a 65-year-old woman is discussed in detail, and this new, contactless method is compared with traditional ulcer healing methods...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare disease that presents as painful ulcerations with inflammation and undermining at the borders. The ulcers can occur anywhere on the body but are most commonly seen on the lower extremities. The etiology of PG is unknown, and there are no definitive diagnostic criteria; PG is a diagnosis of exclusion, which can present serious delays in treatment.Patients should be treated with an interdisciplinary approach with aggressive immunosuppression, treatment of any comorbidities, maximization of nutrition status, reconstructive surgery for treatment of the wound, and physical therapy for deconditioning...

BACKGROUND: Although treatment recommendations for hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) are well known, practical experience implementing them in Lithuania has not been reported yet. OBJECTIVE: To review clinical findings and treatment options used in patients with HS in the largest center of dermatology and venereology in Lithuania from 2005 to 2016. METHODS: A retrospective single-center medical file analysis was conducted on 46 patients with HS...

The occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers is increasing because of aging population trends as well as increases in the number of people with diabetes and obesity. New technologies have been developed to treat these conditions, whereas other technologies previously designed for burns and traumatic wounds have been adapted. This article reviews the development of selected skin replacement technologies, particularly cellular and tissue-based products, highlighting their effectiveness on diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and burns...
