In this show edition for May’s EWMA congress, our education features include the description of a new algorithm for the management of diabetic foot ulcers, with recommendations from Central and Eastern Europe; a systematic review of the evidence of bacterial biofilms within acute wounds; and an overall view of the role of probiotics as wound healers. The impact of nutritional status at admission on the short-term prognosis of diabetic foot ulcers is the focus for one of our practice features, as well as a case report on rapidly evolving gangrenous vasculitis in a critically ill patient with ulcerative colitis, and the performance of clinical risk scores in the diagnosis of necrotising fasciitis. Supplements/intensive nutrition and their effect on pressure ulcer healing is evaluated in a multicentre, randomised controlled study. Further research includes an observational study on wound pH and temperature as predictors of healing.
This edition also includes the North American Supplement which includes a scoping literature review examining the pathophysiology of oedema in the ischaemic and post-revascularised limb, compares compression stockings to pneumatic compression devices, and summarises compression regimens in patients with severe peripheral artery disease; a review describes events that affect the viability of cells at the burn wound site resulting in burn wound conversion and identifies potential targets for clinical interventions that may diminish burn wound conversion; a randomised controlled trial of 38 patients undergoing elective knee arthroscopy, using two portals, compares two closure techniques: approximation of the skin with a micro-anchor skin dressing or an absorbable suture and liquid bonding agent skin; and a description of a novel debridement technique for use in wounds with vertical edges or where the tissue in the wound base does not connect to the wound edges.
This month’s online Research Supplement paper focuses on the topical delivery of mupirocin calcium nanostructured lipid carriers using a full-thickness excision wound healing model.
