The influence of debridement on diabetic foot ulcers: nationwide utilization and outcomes

Tettelbach and coworkers have more compelling data supporting debridement. Objective: To determine the role of debridement when patients are using placental-derived allografts (PDAs), data from two prospective, multicentre, randomised controlled trials (RCTs) were evaluated for the quality or adequacy of debridement on diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) treated with PDAs. Results were compared with real-world findings via... Continue Reading →

Inforatio technique in wound healing- punching your way to success?

Fascinating work from our Danish colleagues. They are testing their (and our collective) observation regarding the disconnect between why punch biopsies seem to heal quite rapidly but chronic wounds don't. Introduction Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are associated with extensive consequences for the affected patients and treatment of these hard-to-heal ulcers is known for being challenging....

The Use of Point-of Care Bacterial Autofluorescence Imaging in the Management of Diabetic Foot Ulcers: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial #Diagnostics #Theragnostics

Important work from our SALSAmigos in Leeds. We see a slow and steady march toward companion diagnostics for our patients. Here we see fluorescence-guided debridement as an example of this. OBJECTIVE To estimate comparative healing rates and decision-making associated with the use of bacterial autofluorescence imaging in the management of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). RESEARCH...

Ultrasound-Assisted Wound (UAW) Debridement in the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis @JosLuisLzaroMa1 #Diabeticfoot @alpslimb 

More and more data to support improvement in wound optimization with ultrasound assisted wound debridement from our long-time friends from the Complutense in Madrid. A systematic review and meta-analysis were carried out to investigate the effect of ultrasound-assisted wound (UAW) debridement in patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). All selected studies were evaluated using the... Continue Reading →

A microbial-load-guided debridement decision tree using bacterial fluorescence imaging #DiabeticFoot #ActAgainstAmputation

Strong concept from Cole and Coe. One can see the future of theragnostic-driven care in works like this. Use of a bacterial fluorescence imaging system to target wound debridement and accelerate healing: a pilot study Objective: Optimal wound-bed preparation consists of regular debridement to remove devitalised tissues, reduce bacterial load, and to establish an environment...
