There’s plenty to read to while away the long winter evenings in this month’s edition of JWC. We have the second part of the study into the clinical impact of hydro-responsive dressings in dynamic wound healing. Dressings also feature in two further papers: one examining the effectiveness of microencapsulated sodium fusidate to impart antibacterial properties into cotton dressings for traumatic wounds, the other describing the use of autologous conditioned serum dressings in hard-to-heal wounds. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) features in two papers: the use of a low-vacuum NPWT protocol for complex wounds with exposed vessels, and a three-step protocol using NPWT, artificial skin and autogenous skin implantation to treat diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). DFUs are the focus of our cover paper which is an evaluation of the effectiveness of combined modulated ultrasound and electric current stimulation to treat DFUs. Reducing pain and promoting healing at graft donor sites through the application of autologous platelet-rich plasma is described, as is the use of topical oxygen treatment in relieving pain from hard-to-heal leg ulcers and improving healing. A retrospective evaluation examines the role of the perioperative prone position in the low recurrence of pelvic region pressure injuries, and an animal model, using mice, is the focus of a cross-sectional histological study of full-thickness skin grafts to reinforce the abdominal wall comparing the intra- and extraperitoneal onlay positions. We also present an overview of an online JWC masterclass on antimicrobial stewardship, with a further paper on the results of an e-survey of delegates of the masterclass examining this issue in relation to wound care.
