1. Interventions for ulceration and other skin changes caused by nerve damage in leprosy. (PubMed)

Interventions for ulceration and other skin changes caused by nerve damage in leprosy. At the end of 2016, 145 countries reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) over 173,000 new cases of leprosy worldwide. In the past 20 years, over 16 million people have been treated for leprosy globally. The condition's main complications are injuries and ulceration caused by sensory loss from nerve damage. In this review we explored interventions to prevent or treat secondary damage to the skin (...) existing ulcers, one of them also evaluated prevention of new ulcers. One study aimed to prevent skin changes, such as cracking and fissures. Investigated interventions included: laser therapy, light-emitting diode (LED), zinc tape, intralesional pentoxifylline, pulsed magnetic fields, wax therapy, ketanserin, human amniotic membrane gel, phenytoin, plaster shoes, and footwear.We are uncertain about the following key results, as the certainty of evidence is very low.

12. Ambiguous skin ulcer on the ear pinna. (PubMed)

Ambiguous skin ulcer on the ear pinna. Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a parasitic disease which has a biphasic life cycle; infection by promastigotes from the sandfly reaches a wound where it is phagocytosed by macrophages, producing the amastigote (the Leishmania donovani body) in the host. A protozoan parasite transmitted by the phlebotomous sandfly causes human leishmaniasis. Cutaneous forms include classical cutaneous, mucocutaneous and post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis. It affects c (...) . 300 million individuals in more than 90 nations around the globe. The cutaneous form in the Old World is caused at low altitudes mainly by L. major (which has an animal reservoir, rodents such as mouse) and in swampy regions and high altitudes by L. tropica (which has no animal reservoir). L. aethiopica and L. major lead to disseminated ulcers in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, India, Tunisia, Sudan and Ethiopia, whose main electrophoretic isozyme pattern Zymodeme in Saudi Arabia is LON

13. Zinc deficiency exacerbates pressure ulcers by increasing oxidative stress and ATP in the skin. (PubMed)

Zinc deficiency exacerbates pressure ulcers by increasing oxidative stress and ATP in the skin. Zinc deficiency is believed to be a predisposing factor for the development and intractable healing of pressure ulcers (PUs); however, the mechanisms of this association have not been elucidated.Objective was to elucidate the mechanisms of the formation of severe and prolonged PUs under the zinc deficiency condition.We assessed PUs formation after cutaneous ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice (...) stress, and apoptosis induced by cutaneous I/R injury. I/R injury-induced oxidative stress signals were significantly higher in ZD OKD48 mice than in ZA OKD48 mice. Additionally, zinc deficiency reduced the number of LCs and increased the amount of ATP in cutaneous I/R-injured skin. Oral supplementation of zinc improved zinc deficiency-associated PUs.Zinc deficiency might increase cutaneous I/R injury-induced vascular damages, oxidative stress, and apoptosis, as well as ATP amount in I/R area due

15. The altered expression of syndecan 4 in the uninvolved skin of venous leg ulcer patients may predispose to venous leg ulcer. (PubMed)

The altered expression of syndecan 4 in the uninvolved skin of venous leg ulcer patients may predispose to venous leg ulcer. Syndecan 4 (SDC4), a heparan sulfate proteoglycan, and neuropilin 1 (NRP1), a transmembrane receptor, are both involved in normal wound healing, but little is known about their possible role in venous leg ulcer pathogenesis. We aimed to investigate whether there are any expression abnormalities and/or gene polymorphisms of SDC4 and NRP1 associated with venous leg ulcer (...) . SDC4 showed significantly lower mRNA and protein expression in the uninvolved dermis of venous leg ulcer patients (n=15) compared with controls (n=15; p=0.0136), while NRP1 showed no expression abnormalities. None of the examined SDC4 and NRP1 polymorphisms showed a difference in their allelic distribution between leg ulcer patients (n=92) and controls (n=92). We hypothesize that SDC4 may play an essential role not only in the inflammation and tissue formation phases of normal wound healing

16. Skin grafting for venous leg ulcers. (PubMed)

Skin grafting for venous leg ulcers. Venous leg ulceration is a recurrent, chronic, disabling condition. It affects up to one in 100 people at some time in their lives. Standard treatments are simple dressings and compression bandages or stockings. Sometimes, despite treatment, ulcers remain open for months or years. Sometimes skin grafts are used to stimulate healing. These may be taken, or grown into a dressing, from the patient's own uninjured skin (autografts), or applied as a sheet (...) pads with an autograft delivered on porcine gelatin microbeads, the fifth trial (92 participants) compared a meshed graft with a cultured keratinocyte autograft, and the sixth trial (50 participants) compared a frozen keratinocyte allograft with a lyophilised (freeze-dried) keratinocyte allografts.Significantly more ulcers healed when treated with bilayer artificial skin than with dressings. There was insufficient evidence from the other trials to determine whether other types of skin grafting

Effect of low-level laser therapy on the healing process of donor site in patients with grade 3 burn ulcer after skin graft surgery (a randomized clinical trial). Skin graft is a standard therapeutic technique in patients with deep ulcers, but managing donor site after grafting is very important. Although several modern dressings are available to enhance the comfort of donor site, using techniques that accelerate wound healing may enhance patient satisfaction. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has (...) been used in several medical fields, including healing of diabetic, surgical, and pressure ulcers, but there is not any report of using this method for healing of donor site in burn patients. The protocols and informed consent were reviewed according to Medical Ethics Board of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences (IR.SBMU.REC.1394.363) and Iranian Registry of Clinical Trials (IRCT2016020226069N2).
