• suture
  • In the absence of other known metabolic factors which inhibit healing and may have contributed to suture dehiscence, sub-acute infection should be suspected and the protocol of obtaining wound cultures followed by treatment with the appropriate antibiotics should be undertaken. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue

  • Unstageable: Full thickness tissue loss in which actual depth of the ulcer is completely obscured by slough (yellow, tan, gray, green or brown) and/or eschar (tan, brown or black) in the wound bed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Concurrently, re-epithelialization of the epidermis occurs, in which epithelial cells proliferate and 'crawl' atop the wound bed, providing cover for the new tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Guided bone regeneration or GBR, and guided tissue regeneration or GTR are dental surgical procedures that use barrier membranes to direct the growth of new bone and gingival tissue at sites with insufficient volumes or dimensions of bone or gingiva for proper function, esthetics or prosthetic restoration. (wikipedia.org)
  • Collagen absorbable barrier membranes do not require surgical removal, inhibit migration of epithelial cells, promote the attachment of new connective tissue, are not strongly antigenic and prevent blood loss by promoting platelet aggregation leading to early clot formation and wound stabilization.

  • Closure
  • It is hypothesised that a decrease in the time to achieve stable wound closure will not only lead to a patient benefit, but also a potential reduction in the cost of treatment due to e.g. repeat procedures, longer hospital stay, infection etc. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the difference in time to closure of wounds surgically excised with VERSAJET Hydrosurgery System and those surgically excised using conventional operating room techniques. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Collagen membranes may also facilitate primary wound closure via fibroblast chemotactic properties, even after membrane exposure. (wikipedia.org)
  • peri-wound
  • For those nurses using Exluxtra for the first time apply the dressing making sure to cover the entire wound bed and extend the dressing 1/2 to 1 inch over the wound edge on the peri-wound skin. (allnurses.com)
  • If there is no leakage from under the dressing edge, no odor or any allergic reaction from topicals used other than Enluxtra (the dressing is occlusive and may potentiate ointments used on peri-wound skin or topicals spreading to the skin from the wound bed) you may gradually increase the time between dressing changes to once a week. (allnurses.com)
  • Procedures
  • A clinical officer is qualified and authorized to perform general or specialized medical duties such as diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury, ordering and interpreting medical tests, performing routine medical and surgical procedures, referring patients to other practitioners and managing health facilities, projects and systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • contraction
  • In wound contraction, myofibroblasts decrease the size of the wound by gripping the wound edges and contracting using a mechanism that resembles that in smooth muscle cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • edges
  • Dehiscence can be prevented through adequate undermining to reduce stress on the wound edges, avoiding heavy lifting and hematomas, and speeding healing through adequate nutrition, controlling diabetes, and avoiding certain medications such as prednisone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once wound dehiscence occurs, it can be treated by allowing granulation, re-cutting and suturing the edges and providing prophylactic antibiotics. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatments
  • Where traditional non-surgical measures such as rest, suppositories and dietary advice fail to improve the condition, there is then a choice of further treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Factors that are thought to affect wound healing are radiation treatments, age, pelvic organ prolapse, the use of corticosteroids, concurrent malignancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • and of the breast skin-envelope (mild, moderate, severe, and pseudo ptosis)-determine the applicable restorative surgical approach for lifting the breasts. (wikipedia.org)
  • fluid
  • More particularly, the present invention relates to providing fluid irrigation and vacuum drainage of a wound. (google.com)
  • negative
  • The negative impact of wounds on patients is significant, and includes pain, reduced quality of life and social isolation. (woundsinternational.com)
  • a wound dressing operatively coupled to the vacuum pump motor, the vacuum pump motor configured to apply negative pressure to the wound dressing. (google.com)
  • 3. The apparatus of claim 2 , wherein the negative pressure in the housing is associated with a negative pressure in a wound dressing. (google.com)
  • 5. The apparatus of claim 2 , wherein the magnetic switch is configured to actuate the vacuum pump motor when a pressure in the housing reaches a pressure threshold, the pressure threshold corresponding to a predetermined negative pressure in a wound dressing. (google.com)
  • Negative pressure wound therapy, also known as vacuum drainage or closed-suction drainage is known. (google.com)
  • practice
  • In corrective practice, the surgical techniques and praxis for reduction mammoplasty also are applied to mastopexy (breast lift). (wikipedia.org)
  • regeneration
  • If the epithelization of a wounded area is fast, the healing will result in regeneration. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are limitations in treating patients with advanced disease but GTR may be able to achieve regeneration and therefore improve upon conventional surgical results. (wikipedia.org)
  • site
  • The latissimus dorsi breast reconstruction flap has a number of advantages, but despite the advances in surgical techniques, it has remained vulnerable to skin dehiscence or necrosis at the donor site (on the back). (wikipedia.org)
  • Complex
  • The breast-lift correction of a sagging bust is a surgical operation that cuts and removes excess tissues (glandular, adipose, skin), overstretched suspensory ligaments, excess skin from the skin-envelope, and transposes the nipple-areola complex higher upon the breast hemisphere. (wikipedia.org)
  • care
  • I laid for 4 hours with wide open wound, in pain, waiting for the doctor to take care of me. (lookfordiagnosis.com)
  • How do you take care of a surgical wound? (lookfordiagnosis.com)
  • In this section, a brief synopsis is presented of a range of recently published articles that may be of interest to health professionals working in the wound care setting. (woundsinternational.com)
  • Wound care utilises diverse modalities, such as hydrogel, polyurethane and alginate. (woundsinternational.com)
  • Journal of Wound Care, 26 (11). (hud.ac.uk)
  • The patient's in the LTAC's are no longer daily dressing so the nurse time and overtime is more efficient and overtime wound care nurse is minimal to none. (allnurses.com)
  • Wound care encourages and speeds wound healing via cleaning and protection from reinjury or infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Depending on each patient's needs, it can range from the simplest first aid to entire nursing specialties such as wound, ostomy, and continence nursing and burn center care. (wikipedia.org)
  • slough
  • Stage 2: Partial thickness loss of dermis presenting as a shallow open ulcer with a red pink wound bed, without slough. (wikipedia.org)
  • Slough or eschar may be present on some parts of the wound bed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Until enough slough and/or eschar is removed to expose the base of the wound, the true depth, and therefore stage, cannot be determined. (wikipedia.org)
  • heal
  • This allows for a faster recovery by the patient and a greater chance for the wound to heal. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Wound healing is an intricate process in which the skin repairs itself after injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this construct, the process of wound healing is divided into two major phases: the early phase and the cellular phase: The early phase, which begins immediately following skin injury, involves cascading molecular and cellular events leading to hemostasis and formation of an early, makeshift extracellular matrix that provides structural staging for cellular attachment and subsequent cellular proliferation.
