Pressure and Diabetic Foot

Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a worldwide burden in the management of patients with diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy has a key role in the physiopathology of DFU. Others factors as skin vulnerability to plantar pressure, glycation of skin protein, articular rigidity, vascular component and abnormal foot plantar pressure are also important ...

Phase N/A

Negative Pressure Vs. Compression in Venous Ulcers

Venous ulcers are characterised by a cyclical pattern of healing and recurrence, with recurrence rates between 45 and 70% at one year. Venous leg ulceration has been identified as a common source of morbidity and reduced quality of life, especially in the elderly population. Non-healing ulcers place the patient at ...

Phase N/A

An RCT on Support Surfaces for Pressure Ulcer Prevention

Pressure injuries are a serious health care problem and threaten the health and well-being of millions of people. Most pressure injuries are avoidable with the application of standard practices and proper utilization of existing technology. Support surface technology has been shown to prevent pressure injuries, but the effectiveness of specific ...

Comparison Between Two Different Protocols of Negative Pressure Therapy for Healing of Chronic Ulcers

Assessment of wound surface area was done by a graded plastic sheet and a metric graph paper, by counting the complete squares of the metric graph paper, while the wound size was done by using a 10 cm syringe filled with dermazin cream and filling the wound with it. Negative ...

Correlation Between Pressure Differences and Micro-vascularization Changes in Bedridden Paraplegic Patient

Paraplegic patients have defective wound healing for sore below the level of spinal lesion. Defect of vascularization of the healing zone certainly participate to this effect. Therefore, this study want to measure, in a clinical settings, the interface pressure (e.g. the pressure between the patient body and the surface he/she ...

Phase N/A

Fluid Immersion Simulation (FIS) System Versus Air Fluidized Bed (AFB) System for Pressure Ulcers

Secondary Objectives: Compare the complication rate in each treatment group during the acute postoperative period (2 weeks). Comparisons of the inflammatory and bacterial microbiomes of pressure ulcers following surgical therapy. Comparisons of baseline patient characteristics and their relationship to both early and late pressure ulcer recurrence, and complication rates. Assessment ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection of Pressure Induced Tissue Damage by Infrared Spectroscopy (ODP) Device

During pressure injuries formation early sub dermal bio signal appear. By applying infrared spectroscopy at a suspicions injury site on the human body and obtaining a reflected infrared light infrared allows to determine early formation of a pressure injury/

Phase N/A

PuraPly AM Plus the Standard of Care to Standard of Care Alone for the Management of Stage II-IV Pressure Ulcers.

This study seeks to demonstrate how PuraPly AM performs against standard of care in Stage II-IV Pressure Ulcers through a prospective randomized controlled study design. Subjects may be enrolled for up to 24 weeks; if healing occurs prior to week 24, a follow up healing confirmation visit shall occur two ...

Phase N/A

Pressure Ulcers in Patients Receiving Enteral Nutrition Therapy and Their Relationship With Gut Microbiota

Participants will be randomly assigned to the experimental group where they will be given enteral nutrition formula rich in zinc and arginine plus a symbiotic (Probinul- Ca.Di.GROUP S.r.l.) once a day for 90 days or the control group where they will receive only the enteral nutrition formula rich in zinc ...

Phase N/A

Pressure Ulcer Incidence Cat. II+ on a Static Air Mattress: a Multicenter Cohort Study in Nursing Home Residents at Risk

Pressure Ulcers are a serious and common problem for residents admitted to long-term care facilities and community care patients. They represent a major burden to patients, carers and the Healthcare system, affecting approximately 1 in 20 community patients. International guidelines recommend the use of pressure redistribution support surfaces, systematic patient ...
