The global prevalence of diabetes is estimated to be 200 million people, and it is likely to increase to 333 million people by 2025. Different cells, are known to participate in three main phases of wound healing. Omega-3 fatty acids influence cytokines and growth factors which affects the presence of inflammatory cells in wound area as well, but how this event specifically influences the role of fibroblasts, macrophages and angiogenesis in wound healing is not obviously understood. In this experimental study seventy male Wistar rats after induction of diabetes type-one by streptozotocin (STZ) (55 mg/kg) were divided into two groups, Experimental group receiving omegaven intraperitoneally and control group which underwent the injection of mineral oil...

A 72-year-old man presented with a chronic scaly verrucous plaque over his right knee for nine months. The lesion was preceded by a well healed scar sustained five years back from a road traffic accident. He was given multiple courses of systemic antibiotic and antifungal medications but to no avail. A skin biopsy confirmed cutaneous tuberculosis. The area of plaque subsided significantly with antituberculosis treatment. However, during the second month of treatment, a new onset of a red fleshy granulating growth developed on the pre-existing site...

Thermal ring injuries are rarely reported in the literature. For this reason, treatment is varied without a standard approach. We describe a case of a thermal wedding ring injury sustained during a welding accident. It is critical to understand the 3 zones of burn injuries when managing these infrequent cases. Furthermore, the dynamic progression that ensues a thermal burn will directly affect outcome. A case is presented along with a graduated approach to the management of such injuries.

Background: In a systematic review, the level of spinal cord injury (SCI) was not associated with risk for pressure ulcer (PU). We hypothesized that in the acute trauma population, upper-SCI (cervical/thoracic) has greater risk for PU when compared to lower-SCI (lumbar/sacral). We additionally sought to identify risk factors for development of PUs in trauma. Methods: A retrospective analysis of the NTDB (2007-2015) was performed. Covariates were included in a multivariable logistic regression analysis to determine risk for PU...

REVIEW
Grace Messenger, Richard Masoetsa, Imtiaz Hussain
Total contact casts are recognized as the gold standard treatment for neuropathic plantar diabetic foot ulceration, endorsed by all national and international consensus papers. Despite this, research has shown that there is a dichotomy between the existing evidence which supports the use of total contact casts in the management of diabetic foot ulcers and its use in clinical practice. This article aims to highlight the benefits, risks, and barriers associated with total contact cast use in the management of diabetic foot ulcers in the clinical setting, with an emphasis on existing research carried out in this field to encourage change in clinical practice and utilization of this effective treatment modality...

Introduction: Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) affects approximately 8 million patients in the United States. We investigate the relationship of Skin Perfusion Pressure (SPP) and wound closure time in lower extremity wounds. Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of 1125 lower extremity wounds in 998 patients between June 2006 and October 2014 in our wound clinic. We analyzed the relationship between SPPand wound closure time. SPP was measured using a Laser Doppler instrument...

The perimammary zone is a critical area for healing, due to high incidence of dehiscences, expecially sternal ones. Although deep sternal wound complications are nowadays less common after cardiac surgery, in some at risk patients, dehiscences still represent important complications of major cardiac or vascular surgeries and they are directly correlated to an increased risk of patient's morbidity and mortality. A heavy breast represents a source of tension on the perimammary wound, inhibiting or delaying a complete recovery...

#9
REVIEW
Richard Simman, Michel H E Hermans
The loss of extracellular matrix in combination with the exposure of structures such as bone and tendon pose a major challenge; the development of granulation tissue and subsequent reepithelialization over these structures is extremely slow and often may not happen at all. Replacement of the matrix has been shown to significantly increase the chances of healing since, with revascularization of the matrix, a wound bed is created that may either heal by secondary intention or via the application of a skin graft...

Oxidative stress is hypothesized to be one of the main causes of the pathophysiologic alterations observed during impaired healing of wounds. In the present study, we aimed to measure systemic levels of free radicals in blood and anti-oxidant (AO) activity in the plasma of patients with chronic ulcers (venous stasis ulcers and arterial insufficiency ulcers) of lower extremities (CULEs). Oxidants and AO activity were measured in eighty-five consecutive patients with CVSUs of the lower extremities as they arrived randomly for routine visits to our ambulatory clinic...

The invasion of the skin and subcutaneous tissue by the larvae (Maggot) is known as Maggot infestation. It was found that farmers who are working in agricultural fields are more prone to this infestation. A case of 60 year old male patient with ulceration on leg for 10 days which was initially smaller and later developed into a larger wound, due to maggot larvae. This case report illustrates the importance and method of treating this cutaneous myiasis.

A 59-year-old African American female presented to a plastic surgery office in consultation for a very painful non-healing wound of her right lateral malleolus. An incisional biopsy was performed and ultimately a diagnosis of hydroxyurea-induced ulcer was concluded. Descriptions of this entity are rare in the surgical and wound care professional literature. This diagnosis does appear in the hematology/oncology literature; however, these practitioners may not be the first to examine a patient with the development of such an ulcer...

REVIEW
Michael S Miller
The concept of the Kennedy Terminal Ulcer (KTU) has been ubiquitous in attempting to explain the development of pressure based tissue injuries in patients with actual or presumed terminal conditions. The concept is problematic in that it uses factors other than pressure to explain the development and progression of pressure based tissue injuries, specifically the presence of a terminal condition. Based on the most current understanding of how pressure based tissue injuries develop and progress, the concept of The Kennedy Terminal Ulcer appears to be without physiologic basis and based solely on observation...

Despite advances in surgical technique, postoperative complications may lead to refractory cutaneous sinus tracts or tunnels. Negative pressure wound therapy is difficult to apply in longer tracts with a narrow diameter opening and conservative treatment failures ultimately necessitate surgical revisions. The aim of this pilot study was a clinical utility assessment of two different commercial placental membrane products for refractory cutaneous sinus tracts of surgical origin. Patients were treated with viable cryopreserved placental membrane (vCPM, n = 6) or devitalized dehydrated amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM, n = 6)...

Eosinophilic granulomatosis (EGPA), or Churg-Strauss syndrome, is a rare and necrotizing systemic vasculitis, which affects small-to-medium-sized vessels and often manifests with severe asthma and eosinophilia. We report a case of a 72 year-old male with a two-year lung-biopsy proven history of EGPA who presented with retiform purpura and patchy necrosis on his bilateral shins, which progressed to sharply demarcated, stellate ulcerations with surrounding erythema within two weeks. Laboratory work up revealed elevated anti-Cardiolipin IgM, rheumatoid factor, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein, although P-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (P-ANCA) and C-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (C-ANCA) were negative...

There are approximately 6.5 million patients in the U.S. suffering from chronic wounds and approximately 140,000 patients hospitalized every year with new wounds. With a long healing process, this demands the need for a non-contact, low cost, and remote monitoring solution that can assist clinicians in diagnosing and treating a patient's wound. This will reduce the burden of countless office visits, especially for those who are elderly and incapacitated. We present a mobile platform based wound 3D imaging app...
