Comparison of Efficacy and Complications Between Negative Pressure Wound Therapy and Conventional Mechanical Fixation in Skin Grafts: A Retrospective Analysis.

Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a therapeutic technique using a suction dressing to remove excess exudation and promote healing in acute or chronic wounds and second-and third-degree burns. Negative pressure could be utilized to secure a skin graft, improving the drainage. Shen X and Coll conducted this retrospective study in which they evaluated 186 patients

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Effects on Chronic Wounds

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) delivers 100% inspired oxygen to individuals at 2.0 to 2.5 absolute atmospheres (ATA) of pressure for a typical total duration of 60-120 minutes during 1-2 daily sessions inside a hyperbaric chamber. Laura Bolton conducted a systematic review of randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing HBOT effects on chronic wounds to those of another therapeutic regimen.

The use of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Etiologies of chronic diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are multifactorial. They are caused by angiopathy and poor skin sensation due to peripheral neuropathy.
Chou WY conducted this study at Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (Kaohsiung, Taiwan). During the course of study, a total of 21 patients were screened. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy was shown to induce neovascularization and increase angiogenic and osteogenic growth factors that lead to improvement in blood flow perfusion and tissue regeneration.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as an Adjunctive Therapy for Wound Care

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an of treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen at a pressure greater than 1 atmospheric pressure (ATA) in a chamber. The aim of the treatment is to increase the O2 level dissolved in the plasma up to 15 times the normal amounts, which helps in the treatment of many diseases.
