Low-level Laser Therapy Versus High Frequency on Pressure Ulcers Treatment

Wound dressing is considered the standard treatment for pressure ulcers, however, despite its proven efficacy, it's a long-term healing process. Among Physiotherapy resources available for pressure ulcers treatment, the most used are low-level laser therapy and high-frequency generator. Even though the individual effects of both are evidenced on literature, there ...

Phase N/A

Subcutaneous Injection and Ultrasonic Dispersion of Cefazolin Into Chronic Pelvic-Region Pressure Ulcers in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

Pressure ulcers (PU) are skin breakdowns that often form after blood flow in the skin is reduced from prolonged and repeated exposure to externally applied forces. As many as 85% of individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) report the occurrence of at least 1 PU since being injured. Despite ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of the Potential for Pressure Ulcer Formation

Researchers developed a non-contact optical imaging technology call Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging which can identify the tissue regions that are at risk of developing pressure ulcers prior to development of irreversible tissue damage. The Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging can identify metabolic and biochemical differences in the tissues near bony prominences ...

Phase N/A

Pressure Area Distribution on a Variety of Clinical Surfaces

Participants in the study will be adults with full mobility, with the capacity to give informed written consent. The investigators will recruit a group of volunteers in order to represent a variety of BMIs, in an attempt to gain a sample of the BMIs found in the population. The investigators ...

Phase N/A

The Use of an Oral Mixture of Arginine Glutamine and Beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate for Treatment of Pressure Ulcers

All patients would be assessed by a dietitian to ensure them receiving nutritional support of at least 30 kcal/kg/day and of at least 1.2 g/kg/day of protein regardless of feeding method. During the study period, vitamin C and zinc supplement would not be given. Nutritional supplement other than that provided ...

Phase N/A

PuraPly Antimicrobial Wound Matrix and Wound Management

The purpose of the case series is to assess the ability of PuraPly AM to meet wound specific treatment goals including management of bioburden, support of granulation tissue formation and support of wound closure. Patients will undergo clinical assessments and receive the standard of care as determined by the treating ...

Phase N/A

Single-Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System vs. Traditional Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System (tNPWT)

The aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of two types of NPWT systems; - tNPWT systems that has successfully completed a coding verification request with CMS and has the following capabilities (e.g., range of negative pressure, connective tubing, canister, foam or gauze filler, and approved for ...

Phase

Registry Trial of the Effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma for Chronic Non-Healing Wounds

The proposed investigation is designed to solicit a large number of patients (N=1,500) with non-healing wounds (Diabetic Foot Ulcers, Venous Ulcers, or Pressure Ulcers) that have not responded to standard wound care in the previous 30 days or more. A prospective, interventional, single-blinded, controlled, registry trial will be used. Data ...

Phase N/A

Study of SANTYL vs Hydrogel (SoloSite ) for Pressure Ulcers

This study is designed to compare SANTYL® versus hydrogel (SoloSite®) in the treatment of pressure ulcers for participants in a long-term care facility. After meeting study criteria, participants will be randomly assigned for application of SANTYL® or SoloSite® to their pressure ulcer for up to 6 weeks. A study previously ...

Phase

Trial Comparing SOC +Skin IQ MCM vs SOC for Pressure Ulcer (PU)

This prospective, randomized, controlled study is designed to capture, evaluate and compare the effects of Skin IQ™ MCM coverlet placed over commercially available pressure redistribution surfaces versus commercially available pressure redistribution surface (SOC) used by itself to manage patients at risk for tissue breakdown. Anticipation is that 160 Subjects will ...
