  Wound Care Update 
  • Houston-area wound care clinic opens
    The recently opened wound care clinic at St. Luke's The Woodlands Hospital features hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat hard-to-heal wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, infections or radiation. Specialists will also provide wound debridement, skin substitutes and negative-pressure wound dressings to accelerate healing and reduce pain.

  • Treated bandages could quickly halt blood loss from wounds
    Researchers reported at a biomedical engineering meeting that they are exploring the use of a chemical called tetraethyl orthosilicate in developing bandages that could halt blood flow from wounds quicker than standard bandages. Experiments showed that fabrics treated with the chemical, which has properties similar to glass fiber, reduced the time needed for plasma to start clotting by 25% to 30%.

  • Antimicrobial light therapy heals leg ulcers in study
    Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy completely healed half of chronic leg ulcers treated after three months, compared with 12.5% of those in the placebo group, a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found. Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy significantly reduced bacterial loads in all wounds and caused no adverse reactions, researchers said.

  • Nanotech film holds promise for wound care
    An experimental dressing consisting of a hydrophilic layer and a hydrophobic layer and infused with silver nanoparticles might have application in wound healing, scientists say. "Imagine a medical dressing where the superhydrophobic surface on top protects the wound from dust and bacteria while the hydrophilic surface at the bottom delivers drugs that can accelerate wound healing or help avoid infections," co-developer Jian Ji said.
