Combination of hydrocolloid dressing and medical compression stockings versus Unna's boot for the treatment of venous leg ulcers. (1/23)

BACKGROUND: Various therapeutic approaches have been developed to manage venous ulcers. In this study the effectiveness of a hydrocolloid dressing (Comfeel Ulcer Dressing) in comparison to the Unna boot, the prototype of rigid bandages, was evaluated. METHODS: DESIGN: Prospective, comparative study. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS: Sixty patients diagnosed with post-thrombotic chronic venous insufficiency with venous ulcers were randomly assigned to two groups of 30 patients. INTERVENTIONS: In group A, the Unna boot, and in group B, hydrocolloid dressing in addition to the elastic compression were used. MEASURES: The two groups were compared in terms of 1) complete healing, 2) weekly wound surface reduction, 3) time to complete healing, 4) performance characteristics (ease-of-use score), 5) pain during application and at home, 6) application time. RESULTS: The duration of the ulcers was 16.6 +/- 5.8 weeks in group A and 16.9 +/- 6.2 in group B (p >0.05). Previous ulcer recurrence was 74% (20/27 patients) in group A and 73% (19/26 patients) in group B (p >0.05). The initial ulcer size was 6.38 +/- 1.2 cm2 in group A and 6.19 +/- 0.8 cm2 in group B (p >0.05). The complete healing rates were 74.07% (20/27) in group A and 80. 76% (21/26) in group B (p >0.05). The weekly wound surface reductions were 1.28 +/- 0.72 cm2/week and 1.16 +/- 0.38 cm2/week in groups A and B, respectively (p >0.05). The ulcer healing time was 6.85 +/- 3.60 weeks in group A, whereas it was 6.65 +/- 3.31 weeks in group B (p >0.05). Ease-of-use score was 9.04 +/- 2.38 in group A and 17.27 +/- 3.27 in group B and the difference was significant (p <0.0001). A higher degree of pain was reported by the patients who were treated with the Unna boot, both during application (group A 3.69 +/- 1.35, group B 1.88 +/- 1.48, p <0.0001) and at home (group A, 3.27 +/- 1.08, group B, 1.88 +/- 1.11, p <0.0001). The average time spent on Unna boot changes was 150.59 +/- 34.73 min, compared to 134.54 +/- 43.39 min in group B (p >0.05). CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrate the superiority of hydrocolloid dressing plus elastic compression treatment in terms of patient convenience.  (+info)

Evaluation of two calcium alginate dressings in the management of venous ulcers. (2/23)

Calcium alginate dressings facilitate the management of highly exudating wounds such as venous ulcers. To evaluate and compare the performance of two calcium alginate dressings in the management of venous ulcers, a prospective, randomized, controlled clinical study was conducted among 19 outpatients at two wound clinics in California. Ten patients (53%) were treated with Alginate A and nine patients (47%) with Alginate B. Dressings were changed weekly and patients were followed for a maximum of 6 weeks or until the venous ulcer no longer required the use of an alginate dressing. At each dressing change, the wound was assessed and dressing performance evaluated. Absorbency of exudate, patient comfort during wear, ease of removal, adherence to wound bed, dressing residue following initial irrigation, patient comfort during removal, ease of application, and conformability were assessed. Patients using Alginate A experienced significantly less foul odor (P = 0.02) and less denuded skin (P = 0.04) than Alginate B at follow-up wound assessments. With the exception of conformability, Alginate A was rated significantly better than Alginate B (P less than or equal to 0.05) in all dressing performance assessments. No significant healing differences were observed. As the different performance characteristics of various calcium alginate dressings become more obvious in clinical practice, further study is warranted to determine their optimal effectiveness.  (+info)

Tissue reactions induced by hydrocolloid wound dressings. (3/23)

Porcine full-thickness excisional wounds were treated with 4 different hydrocolloid (HCD) dressings--DuoDERM (ConvaTec/E. R. Squibb), Intrasite HCD (Smith and Nephew Medical), Tegasorb (3M) and Replicare (Smith and Nephew Medical). Animals were killed at 4, 10, 21 and 90 d post-wound, excision sites were fixed in formalin and processed for histological analysis. Granulomatous lesions were observed following treatment with each of the 4 HCD dressings. Such lesions developed between 4 and 10 d post-wound, exhibiting little evidence of resolution at 90 d post-wound. Of the 4 dressings examined, DuoDERM and Intrasite HCD precipitated the most severe reaction, each treatment resulting in granulomata with a distinct and different morphology. Treatment with DuoDERM resulted in granulomata characterised by a random distribution of dendritic cells, epithelioid cells, multinucleated giant cells, lymphocytes and plasma cells. In contrast, treatment with Intrasite HCD resulted in highly organised granulomata, consisting of a central focus of epithelioid cells surrounded by a peripheral cuff of macrophages, lymphocytes and plasma cells. This experimental study highlights chronic inflammatory lesions that may, if reflected in the clinical environment, question the efficacy and indication of HCD dressings in the treatment of wounds having a number of different aetiologies.  (+info)

Comparing a foam composite to a hydrocellular foam dressing in the management of venous leg ulcers: a controlled clinical study. (4/23)

Venous leg ulcers are the most prevalent form of chronic wounds in the Western world. The principles of moist wound healing coupled with the use of graduated compression bandaging have become the cornerstone of treatment for venous leg ulcers but not all moist dressings are alike. To compare the attributes of a foam composite dressing with those of a hydrocellular foam dressing in the management of venous leg ulcers, a prospective, randomized, comparative 12-week study was conducted in 15 centers in the US, Canada, France, Germany, and the UK. Dressings were changed and compression bandages applied per manufacturer recommendations and dressing performance was assessed at every dressing change and at the final evaluation. Patients with venous ulcers were randomized to treatment for 12 weeks with either hydrocellular foam (n = 52) or foam composite (n = 55) dressing. Healing differences between the groups were not statistically significant, with 36% of patients using foam composite dressing healed in a mean of 66 days and 39% of patients using hydrocellular foam dressing healed in a mean of 73 days. However, the foam composite dressing performed significantly better than the hydrocellular foam dressing with regard to condition of the periwound skin - 55% of patients in the foam composite group having healed or markedly improved surrounding skin compared to 37% of patients using hydrocellular foam (P = 0.03). The foam composite dressing was rated significantly better than the hydrocellular foam dressing ("very good" to "excellent") in level of satisfaction with conformability (87% and 75%, respectively, P = 0.05); being non-sensitizing (73% and 52%, respectively, P = 0.02); and ease of application (93% and 81%, respectively, P = 0.01). The findings reported in this study suggest that the foam composite dressing offers significant improvements in the quality of life of patients with venous leg ulcers as well as for their caregivers.  (+info)

Approach to skin ulcers in older patients. (5/23)

OBJECTIVE: To provide family physicians with an approach to managing skin ulcers in older patients. SOURCES OF INFORMATION: Clinical practice guidelines and best practice guidelines were summarized to describe an evidence-based approach. MAIN MESSAGE; Preventing ulcers is important in frail older patients. Using guidelines can help prevent ulcers in institutions. Clarifying the cause and contributing factors is the first step in management. Pressure and venous ulcers are common in elderly people. Poor nutrition, edema, arterial insufficiency, and anemia often impair wound healing. Adequate debridement is important to decrease risk of infection and to promote healing. There are guidelines for cleaning ulcers. Choice of dressings depends on the circumstances of each wound, but dressings should provide a moist environment. Options for dressings are summarized. CONCLUSION: Family physicians can manage skin ulcers effectively by applying basic principles and using readily available guidelines.  (+info)

Clinical results of one-stage urethroplasty with parameatal foreskin flap for hypospadias. (6/23)

We investigated the usefulness of one-stage urethroplasty by the parameatal foreskin flap method (OUPF procedure), which is useful for repairing all types of hypospadias. Between June 1992 and March 2001, the OUPF procedure was performed on 18 patients with hypospadias: 10 patients with distal and 8 with proximal hypospadias. The follow-up periods ranged from 33-75 months, with an average of 52 months. The duration of surgery, the catheter indwelling period, and the postoperative complications of each patient were analyzed. The median age of the patients at the time of surgery was 3 years and 8 months. The length of surgery for OUPF II ranged from 150-230 min (average 186 min), and from 190-365 min (average 267 min) for OUPF IV. Postoperative complications were confirmed in 3 of the 18 patients (16.6%). Two patients had fistulas, and one had a meatal regression. The fistulas were successfully closed by the simple multilayered closure method. After adopting DuoDerm dressings instead of elastic bandages for protection of the wound, no fistulization occurred. DuoDerm dressings are useful in the healing of wounds without complications. To date, the longest follow-up period has been 75 months, and during that time there have been no late complications such as urethral stenosis or penile curvature. OUPF is a useful method in the treatment of hypospadias with a low incidence of early and late complications.  (+info)

Preliminary use of a hydrogel containing enzymes in the treatment of stage II and stage III pressure ulcers. (7/23)

Considerable progress has been made in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers but they remain a significant healthcare problem, particularly among the elderly. Treatment may include the use of wound dressings such as hydrogels as well as debridement products that contain relatively high concentrations of various enzymes. Unlike enzymes found in debridement products, low concentrations of endopeptidase enzymes can cleave to denatured proteins. Many endopeptidases have been reported to enhance the healing process. To evaluate the effect of a hydrogel wound dressing containing a combination of endopeptidases on pressure ulcers, a 12-week prospective preliminary study was conducted involving 10 nursing home patients with Stage II (n = 3) or Stage III (n = 7) ulcers that had failed to respond to previous treatments. Seven subjects (three with Stage II ulcers and four with Stage III ulcers) completed the study. Healing was based on wound closure by re-epithelialization as determined by area measurement and clinical assessment. All three Stage II ulcers and two of the Stage III ulcers healed completely; four Stage III ulcers were categorized as healing (>60% improvement) after 12 weeks of care. No dressing-related adverse events occurred and subject acceptance of the product, including comfort, was high. These results suggest that additional studies designed to define the possible contribution of endopeptidase enzymes in wound healing are warranted.  (+info)

Artificial barrier repair in wounds by semi-occlusive foils reduced wound contraction and enhanced cell migration and reepithelization in mouse skin. (8/23)

The repair of the permeability barrier to prevent the entry of harmful substances into the body is a goal in wound healing. Semi-occlusive foils, which provide an artificial barrier, are commonly used for the treatment of wounds. We examined the effects of foils on wound contraction, cell migration, and reepithelization. Full-thickness skin wounds in mice were covered with occlusive latex foils or semi-occlusive water vapor-permeable hydrocolloid foils for either the entire, the first half, or the second half of the wound-healing period. We found that application of foils for the entire healing period initially reduced wound healing during the first week of treatment, whereas healing was enhanced during the second week. Foils were found to reduce wound contraction, but enhanced reepithelization during the second week of wound healing because of increased proliferation and migration of keratinocytes. These effects were also noted when the hydrocolloid foils were applied for the second part of the healing period, only. The fully occlusive latex foil led to irritation of the skin, whereas less irritation occurred under semi-occlusive conditions. In summary, we found that artificial barrier repair with semi-occlusive foils in wounds reduced wound contraction and enhanced cell migration and reepithelization without irritation.  (+info)

Symptoms of leg ulcers may include:

* Pain or tenderness in the affected area
* Redness or swelling around the wound
* Discharge or oozing of fluid from the wound
* A foul odor emanating from the wound
* Thickening or hardening of the skin around the wound

Causes and risk factors for leg ulcers include:

* Poor circulation, which can be due to conditions such as peripheral artery disease or diabetes
* Injury or trauma to the lower leg
* Infection, such as cellulitis or abscesses
* Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis
* Poorly fitting or compression garments
* Smoking and other lifestyle factors that can impair healing

Diagnosis of a leg ulcer typically involves a physical examination and imaging tests, such as X-rays or ultrasound, to rule out other conditions. Treatment may involve debridement (removal of dead tissue), antibiotics for infection, and dressing changes to promote healing. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove infected tissue or repair damaged blood vessels.

Prevention is key in managing leg ulcers. This includes maintaining good circulation, protecting the skin from injury, and managing underlying conditions such as diabetes or peripheral artery disease. Compression stockings and bandages can also be used to help reduce swelling and promote healing.

Prognosis for leg ulcers varies depending on the severity of the wound and underlying conditions. With proper treatment and care, many leg ulcers can heal within a few weeks to months. However, some may take longer to heal or may recur, and in severe cases, amputation may be necessary.

Overall, managing leg ulcers requires a comprehensive approach that includes wound care, debridement, antibiotics, and addressing underlying conditions. With proper treatment and care, many leg ulcers can heal and improve quality of life for those affected.

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of pressure ulcers, including:

1. Pressure: Prolonged pressure on a specific area of the body can cause damage to the skin and underlying tissue.
2. Shear: Movement or sliding of the body against a surface can also contribute to the development of pressure ulcers.
3. Friction: Rubbing or friction against a surface can damage the skin and increase the risk of pressure ulcers.
4. Moisture: Skin that is wet or moist is more susceptible to pressure ulcers.
5. Incontinence: Lack of bladder or bowel control can lead to prolonged exposure of the skin to urine or stool, increasing the risk of pressure ulcers.
6. Immobility: People who are unable to move or change positions frequently are at higher risk for pressure ulcers.
7. Malnutrition: A diet that is deficient in essential nutrients can impair the body's ability to heal and increase the risk of pressure ulcers.
8. Smoking: Smoking can damage blood vessels and reduce blood flow to the skin, increasing the risk of pressure ulcers.
9. Diabetes: People with diabetes are at higher risk for pressure ulcers due to nerve damage and poor circulation.
10. Age: The elderly are more susceptible to pressure ulcers due to decreased mobility, decreased blood flow, and thinning skin.

Pressure ulcers can be classified into several different stages based on their severity and the extent of tissue damage. Treatment for pressure ulcers typically involves addressing the underlying cause and providing wound care to promote healing. This may include changing positions frequently, using support surfaces to reduce pressure, and managing incontinence and moisture. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to clean and close the wound.

Prevention is key in avoiding pressure ulcers. Strategies for prevention include:

1. Turning and repositioning frequently to redistribute pressure.
2. Using support surfaces that are designed to reduce pressure on the skin, such as foam mattresses or specialized cushions.
3. Maintaining good hygiene and keeping the skin clean and dry.
4. Managing incontinence and moisture to prevent skin irritation and breakdown.
5. Monitoring nutrition and hydration to ensure adequate intake.
6. Encouraging mobility and physical activity to improve circulation and reduce immobility.
7. Avoiding tight clothing and bedding that can constrict the skin.
8. Providing proper skin care and using topical creams or ointments to prevent skin breakdown.

In conclusion, pressure ulcers are a common complication of immobility and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Understanding the causes and risk factors for pressure ulcers is essential in preventing and managing these wounds. Proper assessment, prevention, and treatment strategies can improve outcomes and reduce the burden of pressure ulcers on patients and healthcare systems.

The symptoms of a varicose ulcer may include:

* Pain and tenderness in the affected leg
* Swelling and redness around the wound site
* Discharge of fluid or pus from the wound
* Foul odor emanating from the wound
* Skin that is warm to touch

The risk factors for developing a varicose ulcer include:

* Age, as the risk increases with age
* Gender, as women are more likely to develop them than men
* Family history of varicose veins or other circulatory problems
* Obesity
* Pregnancy and childbirth
* Prolonged standing or sitting
* Previous history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE)

Treatment for varicose ulcers typically involves a combination of wound care, compression therapy, and addressing the underlying cause of the ulcer. This may include:

* Cleaning and dressing the wound to promote healing and prevent infection
* Applying compression stockings or bandages to reduce swelling and improve blood flow
* Elevating the affected limb to reduce swelling
* Taking antibiotics to treat any underlying infections
* Using sclerotherapy to close off the ruptured vein
* In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or remove the affected vein.

It is important for individuals with varicose ulcers to seek medical attention if they experience any signs of infection, such as increased pain, swelling, redness, or pus, as these wounds can lead to serious complications if left untreated.

A sprain is a stretch or tear of a ligament, which is a fibrous connective tissue that connects bones to other bones and provides stability to joints. Sprains often occur when the joint is subjected to excessive stress or movement, such as during a fall or sudden twisting motion. The most common sprains are those that affect the wrist, knee, and ankle joints.

A strain, on the other hand, is a stretch or tear of a muscle or a tendon, which is a fibrous cord that connects muscles to bones. Strains can occur due to overuse, sudden movement, or injury. The most common strains are those that affect the hamstring, calf, and back muscles.

The main difference between sprains and strains is the location of the injury. Sprains affect the ligaments, while strains affect the muscles or tendons. Additionally, sprains often cause joint instability and swelling, while strains may cause pain, bruising, and limited mobility.

Treatment for sprains and strains is similar and may include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Physical therapy exercises may also be recommended to improve strength and range of motion. In severe cases, surgery may be required to repair the damaged tissue.

Prevention is key in avoiding sprains and strains. This can be achieved by maintaining proper posture, warming up before physical activity, wearing appropriate protective gear during sports, and gradually increasing exercise intensity and duration. Proper training and technique can also help reduce the risk of injury.

Overall, while sprains and strains share some similarities, they are distinct injuries that require different approaches to treatment and prevention. Understanding the differences between these two conditions is essential for proper diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.

1. Anxiety or panic attacks: During an anxiety or panic attack, individuals may experience gagging sensations due to hyperventilation or increased heart rate.
2. Asthma or other respiratory conditions: Gagging can be a symptom of asthma or other respiratory conditions, such as bronchitis or pneumonia.
3. Food or object lodged in the throat: When food or an object becomes lodged in the throat, it can cause gagging sensations and lead to choking.
4. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): GERD can cause stomach acid to flow up into the esophagus, leading to gagging and heartburn.
5. Sinus infections or allergies: Infections or allergies in the sinuses can cause postnasal drip, which can lead to gagging sensations.
6. Dental problems: Tooth abscesses, dental work, or other dental issues can cause gagging sensations.
7. Neurological disorders: Certain neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis, can affect the nerves that control swallowing and lead to gagging.
8. Side effects of medication: Some medications, such as antidepressants or antipsychotics, can cause dry mouth or other side effects that lead to gagging.
9. Vomiting or nausea: Gagging can be a symptom of vomiting or nausea due to a variety of causes, such as motion sickness, viral infections, or food poisoning.

If you are experiencing persistent or severe gagging sensations, it is important to seek medical attention to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.

Treatment options for entropion include:

* Eyelid hygiene and warm compresses to reduce inflammation and clean the eyelids
* Prescription medications such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory eye drops or ointments, or steroids to reduce swelling and infection
* Surgical procedures like eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or entropion repair to correct the position of the eyelid and remove any damaged tissue.

It is important to seek medical attention if you experience symptoms of entropion, as it can lead to complications such as corneal ulcers or vision loss if left untreated. A comprehensive diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan from an eye care professional are necessary for effective management of this condition.

There are many different types of ankle injuries, ranging from mild sprains and strains to more severe fractures and dislocations. Some common causes of ankle injuries include:

* Rolling or twisting the ankle
* Landing awkwardly on the foot
* Direct blows to the ankle
* Overuse or repetitive motion

Symptoms of an ankle injury can vary depending on the severity of the injury, but may include:

* Pain and tenderness in the ankle area
* Swelling and bruising
* Difficulty moving the ankle or putting weight on it
* Instability or a feeling of the ankle giving way
* Limited range of motion

Ankle injuries can be diagnosed through a combination of physical examination, imaging tests such as X-rays or MRIs, and other diagnostic procedures. Treatment for ankle injuries may include:

* Rest and ice to reduce swelling and pain
* Compression bandages to help stabilize the ankle
* Elevation of the injured ankle to reduce swelling
* Physical therapy exercises to strengthen the muscles around the ankle and improve range of motion
* Bracing or taping to provide support and stability
* In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair damaged ligaments or bones.

It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time, as untreated ankle injuries can lead to chronic pain, instability, and limited mobility. With proper treatment and care, however, many people are able to recover from ankle injuries and return to their normal activities without long-term complications.
