  Wound Care Update 
  • Medical director introduces maggot therapy to Mo. wound clinic
    The director of wound care and hyperbaric medicine at Cox Medical Center in Branson, Mo., has introduced maggot debridement therapy to the wound clinic's treatment options. Two patients have been treated with the therapy who otherwise may have required amputation, Dr. Robert Dorsey said. The therapy cleans wounds well and promotes faster healing, but some patients remain averse, Dorsey said. Branson Tri-Lakes News (Mo.) (1/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Study: Poor adherence leads to foot ulcer recurrence
    Patients who were prescribed custom footwear often did not wear it at home, leading to foot ulcer recurrence, a study of 107 patients with diabetes, neuropathy and a recently healed plantar foot ulcer found. Adherence away from home was significantly higher than adherence at home, though more steps were taken at home, the researchers reported in the journal Diabetes Care.

  • Simple, low-cost interventions can reduce amputations
    A study of 114 Swedish patients found that simple interventions, such as shoe inserts, podiatry and regular checkups could reduce diabetic foot amputations by at least 50%. Over a one-year period, only 0.9% of participants who used shoe inserts developed new foot ulcers, compared with reports of 3% to 8% in similar populations with diabetes. The results were slated for presentation at the International Conference on Prosthetics and Orthotics in India. Diabetes.co.uk (U.K.) (1/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
