Dehydrated human amnion/chorion membranes and wound healing

Wound healing is a well-coordinated sequence of events in which signalling and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) are integral components. dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the enhancement of wound repair compared with standard compression therapy.

Bioresorbable scaffold as a dermal substitute

Burns, trauma, chronic and complex wounds can result in complete loss of skin, leading to infection, increased insensible water loss, hypothermia, difficulties in patient management. Lenon Cardoso and Coll performed this study to assess the efficiency of a porous bioresorbable membrane Poly (L-co-DL lactic acid)-co-trimethylene carbonate, PL-co-DLA-co-TMC, as a dermal substitute associated with partial skin graft in rats.

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.
