In June’s edition of JWC, the relationship between cleaning frequency and pressure ulcer healing time in older people receiving home care is examined; and a case report describes piperacillin/tazobactam-induced sudden severe thrombocytopenia in a patient with a pressure ulcer (PU). PUs feature in two further studies-one focusing on their relation to prone positioning, the other on their development in patients treated for acute ischaemic stroke.  Predictors of surgical management in diabetic foot infections are analysed; and a systematic review examines the treatment of hard-to-heal wounds in ischaemic lower extremities with a novel fish skin-derived matrix. A preliminary study examines the effects of neuromuscular taping form I on wound temperature and erythema in diabetic foot ulcers; and a pilot study looks at the effects of oral multispecies probiotic on wound healing, periodontitis and quality of life on patients with diabetes. A grounded theory approach is used to understand patient behaviour after referral to a wound care clinic for diabetic foot ulcer care; and a single application of a debridement pad is evaluated in an observational study.
In this month’s WUWHS supplement, two case reports feature; one on the lessons learned from an aggressive tumour masquerading as a neuropathic heel ulcer, and the other describing a case of non-lactational mastitis with multiple sinus wounds treated by integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine. The clinical characteristics and mortality rates between Fournier’s gangrene originating from perianal or from urogenital regions are compared, and the effectiveness of active and reactive mattresses in pressure injury healing are also compared in a pilot study. 
The online Research supplement features two new papers: a literature review on the clinical use of 0.1% polyhexanide and propylbetaine on acute and hard-to-heal wounds; and an examination of the correlation between initial serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and granulation growth in diabetic foot ulcers.
