3. Comparison of the treatment of hydrocolloid and saline gauze for pressure ulcer: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. (Full text)

Comparison of the treatment of hydrocolloid and saline gauze for pressure ulcer: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. To determine the hydrocolloid dressing versus saline gauze for the treatment of pressure ulcer.Pubmed and Web of Knowledge were searched for randomized controlled trials for the treatment of hydrocolloid and saline gauze for pressure ulcer. The random effect model was used. Sensitivity analysis and publication bias were conducted.Seven randomized controlled trials (...) involving a total of 329 participants were included in this meta-analysis. The combined results suggested that significant association in complete healing were detected among hydrocolloid dressings and saline gauze [Summary RR=2.20, 95% CI=1.21-4.02, I(2)=48.5%]. The associations were also significant when we only combine the results for ulcers healed and the treatment duration of 8-12 weeks. No publication bias was found.Our meta-analysis suggested that the use of hydrocolloid dressing increased

hypothesised that it might be effective in reducing bleeding after extraction too. Ten patients who required bilateral extractions took part in this split-mouth, randomised, single-blind, controlled clinical trial. After extraction, sockets were packed with similar gauze dressings soaked in normal saline 4 ml at room temperature (control) and warmed to 42°C (experimental). The extent of bleeding on each side was measured by subtracting the original weight of the gauze from its weight after absorption (...) Local heating of the wound with dressings soaked in saline at 42°C can reduce postoperative bleeding: a single-blind, split-mouth, randomised controlled clinical trial. Control of bleeding is essential during oral procedures. Although various chemical agents have been introduced and tested, hot water dressing has not to our knowledge been assessed before. Studies of operations for epistaxis or sinus conditions have suggested that irrigation with hot water can reduce bleeding, so we

modelled the relative effectiveness of any two treatments as a function of each treatment relative to the reference treatment (saline gauze). We assumed that treatment effects were similar within dressings classes (e.g. hydrocolloid, foam). We present estimates of effect with their 95% confidence intervals for individual treatments compared with every other, and we report ranking probabilities for each intervention (probability of being the best, second best, etc treatment). We assessed the certainty (...) regarding the rank order of interventions in this review (very low-certainty evidence), but we report here a summary of results for some comparisons of interventions compared with saline gauze. We present here only the findings from evidence which we did not consider to be very low certainty, but these reported results should still be interpreted in the context of the very low certainty of the network as a whole.It is not clear whether regimens involving protease-modulating dressings increase

14. Antimicrobial gauze as a dressing reduces pin site infection: a randomized controlled trial. (Full text)

Antimicrobial gauze as a dressing reduces pin site infection: a randomized controlled trial. Pin site infection is a common problem in external fixation. Plain gauze wetted with normal saline is commonly used for a pin site dressing owing to the simplicity and low cost. Evidence to support adding an antimicrobial agent in the dressing material is lacking.We compared the rate of pin tract infection using plain gauze and gauze impregnated with polyhexamethylene biguanide in patients undergoing (...) limb lengthening procedures.We included 38 patients (40 limbs) undergoing limb lengthening or deformity correction using an external fixator between July 2009 and June 2010. There were 23 male patients and 15 female patients, with a mean age of 26.3 years (range, 5-68 years). The patients were randomized into two groups: a polyhexamethylene biguanide group (22 limbs) and a control group (18 limbs).

Celox® Rapid had stronger adherence to tissues compared to PolySTAT/chitosan gauzes, blood loss was greater due to hematoma formation under the Celox® dressing. Animals treated with PolySTAT/chitosan gauzes required less saline infusion to restore and maintain blood pressure above the target blood pressure (60mmHg) while other treatment groups required more saline due to continued bleeding from the wound. These results suggest that PolySTAT/chitosan gauzes are able to improve blood clotting (...) PolySTAT-Modified Chitosan Gauzes for Improved Hemostasis in External Hemorrhage Positively-charged chitosan gauzes stop bleeding from wounds by electrostatically interacting with negatively-charged cell membranes of erythrocytes to cause erythrocyte agglutination and by sealing wounds through tissue adhesion.

, controlled trial to compare the effect of normal saline-impregnated gauze and insulin dressing in pressure ulcer healing. Persons with immunodeficiency, diabetes mellitus, pregnancy, osteomyelitis, and peripheral vascular illness were not eligible for the study. Study participants were randomized to receive either normal saline dressing gauze or insulin dressing twice daily for 7 days. At baseline, patient demographic data and ulcer history were recorded. Baseline and follow-up ulcer assessments (days 4 (...) and day 7) included ulcer measurement (length and width) and completion of the Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH version 3.0) tool. Patients in the control group received dressings of sterile gauze soaked with normal saline; patients in the intervention group received topical insulin (1 U/cm2 wound area). The insulin was sprayed over the wound surface with an insulin syringe, allowed to dry for 15 minutes, and then covered with sterile gauze. To ascertain the safety of study participants, blood
