  • Survey examines clinician views on algorithms for NPWT
    A survey on negative pressure wound therapy algorithms found a lack of consensus on how to define a chronic versus acute wound and misperceptions of commonly used surgical closure definitions. Clinicians said the evidence-based negative pressure wound therapy algorithms are relevant or appropriate and have strong content validity, but some guidance on optimal usage is needed.

  • Transient electronics might speed wound healing
    Scientists have developed a prototype electronic device that enhanced wound healing before dissolving. The research, funded by the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation, is reported in the journal Science. "We used only metals that already exist in the body, so we’re confident they can dissolve without concerns about toxicity," Northwestern University professor Yonggang Huang said. Other medical applications for the technology include monitoring vital signs, delivering medications and tracking patient progress. Forbes (9/27) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Researchers develop phenytoin sodium-based wound gel
    Researchers at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland worked with doctors at Beaumont Hospital to develop a wound-healing gel based on phenytoin sodium, an anticonvulsant known to have wound-healing properties. The researchers say they are looking for a partner to scale up clinical trials for TopGel. The Irish Times (Dublin) (10/1) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Mice that can regrow tissue could aid wound care research
    Two species of African spiny mouse can completely regenerate damaged skin instead of scar tissue. Researchers will attempt to identify the molecular mechanisms and genetic pathways involved in the regeneration process, and apply those findings to people. "We just need to figure out how to dial the process in mammals back to do something the entire system already knows how to do," study leader Ashley Seifert said.
