Introduction: Single-use negative pressure wound therapy (sNPWT) systems have been noted to significantly reduce the rate of surgical site infections and wound complications in closed surgical…
Poster
Introduction: Early intervention with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in hard-to-heal wounds is associated not only with improved outcomes, but also with lower costs of treatment. Objective:…
Poster
Objective: Moderate-to-heavy bacterial loads delay healing and can lead to infection; therefore, clinical evaluation of signs and symptoms (CSS) of the bacterial-infection continuum is imperative to…
Poster
Introduction: Venous leg ulcerations (VLUs) frequently represent a significant clinical challenge. Dehydrated human amnion and chorion allografts have shown great promise in the treatment of…
Poster
Introduction: Wound colonization and infection are often asymptomatic and are therefore grossly under-detected in the chronic wound population. Typically polymicrobial in nature, the vast majority of…
Poster
Problem: The triad, bacterial inflammation, painful dermatitis, and exudate with skin maceration, can delay effective wound clinic compression for months resulting in venous leg ulcer (VLU) outliers…
Poster
Background: Surgical site complications (SSCs) are associated with excess morbidity and mortality and represent a significant burden to the health-care system, making surgical site infection (SSI)…
Poster
Introduction: Bacteria can cycle between two distinct modes of growth, as free-floating “planktonic” and attached “biofilm.” Opportunistically seizing hold of acute and chronic wounds once…
Poster
Introduction: Removal of medical adhesive dressings, such as ostomy wafers, may result in skin stripping at the wound and peri-wound areas. Medical adhesive removers weaken the dressing’s adherence…
Poster
Introduction: Patients with chronic lower extremity wounds are reported to have inflammation associated with biofilm bacterial colonization of the wound bed. A novel therapy, Theraworx (TWX), has…
