As autumn approaches, cosy up with September’s edition of JWC. The use of single-use negative pressure wound therapy over a six-year period in vascular patients is the focus of a clinical and economic evaluation. A number papers this month focus on wound dressings including: consensus expert opinion on the use of multilayer silicone foam dressings as adjuvant therapy to prevent pressure injuries; evaluation of the pro-angiogenic properties of an inorganic silica gel fibre fleece; an in-depth look at superabsorbent dressings to promote critical thinking among health professionals on what to ask manufacturers to inform decision-making on dressing choice; and a community setting survey of nurses to evaluate AQUACEL dressings. Various modes of managing ulcers feature in three papers: a service evaluation of an advanced self-care delivery model for leg ulcer management; use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment for University of Texas grade 3 diabetic foot ulcers; and a description of the MACAN study looking at the management of hard-to-heal leg ulcers with an acid-oxidising solution versus standard of care. A cost-effectiveness evaluation of a specialist wound care service is also described. Our guest editorials feature a discussion on cold plasma treatment by Dr Koen Lim and colleagues in the Netherlands. A description of the opening of the first Italian Leg Club in Pisa is presented by Ellie Lindsay, and Marco Romanelli.



This edition of the North American Supplement features a case report providing a step-by-step guide on the quick removal of a septic foot, and a retrospective review of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for paediatric patients—an unintended consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. There is also a description of guidelines for the use of topical oxygen therapy in the treatment of hard-to-heal wounds based on a Delphi consensus. Guest editorials feature a discussion on the use of data-centred education and treatment personalisation to improve wound care outcomes by Tobe Madu, a summary of the proceedings of the Leaders in Wound Healing Conference from Tomas Serena, and early wound bed preparation: irrigation and debridement by James Stiehl.



And if you’re still eager for more JWC content, our special online Research Supplement features a round-up from across the globe of research and innovation in the field of wound care.
