New Insights on the Effects of Dietary Omega‐3 Fatty Acids on Impaired Skin Healing in DFU and VLU #DiabeticFoot #Wound Healing

A terrific review by Rome’s Serini and Calviello Long-chain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (Omega-3 PUFAs) are widely recognized as powerful negative regulators of acute inflammation. However, the precise role exerted by these dietary compounds during the healing process is still largely unknown, and there is increasing interest in understanding their specific effects on the implicated […]

Mixed up Macrophages: M1/M2 Dysregulation in Diabetic Foot Ulcers

A great review from Queensland that should help put some of the confusing M1-M2 phenotype story into sharper relief. Skin Wound Healing: Normal Macrophage Function and Macrophage Dysfunction in Diabetic Wounds Abstract: Macrophages play a prominent role in wound healing. In the early stages, they promote inflammation and remove pathogens, wound debris, and cells that […]

The Thermo-Pressure Concept: A New Model in Diabetic Foot Risk Stratification

The Thermo-Pressure Concept: A New Model in Diabetic Foot Risk Stratification This from our Maltese SALSAmigos, Perren and coworkers Abstract: Elevated foot pressure and high temperatures have been proposed as predictive factors for diabetic foot ulceration; however, on their own, their predictive value is still questionable. This pilot study hypothesized that combining these two measurements […]
