Use of Adhesive Elastic Taping for the Therapy of Medium/Severe Pressure Ulcers in Spinal Cord Injured Patients

All patients with a significant deficiency of skin sensitivity and reduced mobility are potentially at risk of Pressure Ulcers (PUs), in particular the persons affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), also due to their frequent alteration or loss of subcutaneous skin sensitivity. More than one-third of individuals hospitalized in Spinal ...

Prevention of Pressure Sores in the Prone Position in ARDS Patients

A nursing strategy to prevent pressure sores in the prone position in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients. A multicenter controlled prospective stepped wedge trial.

Phase N/A

Effectiveness of Aurix Therapy in Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers (PUs) are a common problem in all patient care settings, especially long-term acute care facilities and nursing homes. Aurix is a platelet-rich plasma gel used in the treatment of non-healing chronic wounds. The results of Aurix to date when used to treat PUs have been promising. The aim ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Concomitant Use of ACell MicroMatrix and ACell Cytal to Standard of Care in Stage 3 or 4 Pressure Injuries

A three arm, parallel-design, randomized study comparing 2 experimental arms to a single control arm. The primary comparison will be Group 1 (MicroMatrix and ACell Cytal Wound Matrix 2-Layer vs. Group 3 (NPWT) to determine if Group 1 is superior to Group 3. NPWT is the standard of care (SOC) ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
