161. Randomized clinical trial of negative pressure wound therapy for high-risk groin wounds in lower extremity revascularization

Randomized clinical trial of negative pressure wound therapy for high-risk groin wounds in lower extremity revascularization The surgical site infection (SSI) rate in vascular surgery after groin incision for lower extremity revascularization can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. This trial was designed to study the effect of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) on SSI in closed groin wounds after lower extremity revascularization in patients at high risk for SSI.A single-center (...) , randomized, controlled trial was performed at an academic tertiary medical center. Patients with previous femoral artery surgical exposure, body mass index of >30 kg/m2 or the presence of ischemic tissue loss were classified as a high-risk patient for SSI. All wounds were closed primarily and patients were randomized to either NPWT or standard dressing. The primary outcome of the trial was postoperative 30-day SSI in the groin wound. The secondary outcomes included 90-day SSI, hospital duration of stay

163. Wound healing in wild male baboons: Estimating healing time from wound size. (PubMed)

Wound healing in wild male baboons: Estimating healing time from wound size. Wound healing in animals is important to minimize the fitness costs of infection. Logically, a longer healing time is associated with higher risk of infection and higher energy loss. In wild mammals, wounds caused by aggressive intraspecific interactions can potentially have lethal repercussions. Clarifying wounding rate and healing time is therefore important for measuring the severity of the attacks. In addition (...) , impact of secondary damage of wounds (e.g., accidental peeling off of scabs) on heeling time is unknown despite the risk of infection in wild mammals. In baboons, most male injuries have been reported to result from male to male fights. Here, we investigated the relationship between wound size and healing time in wild anubis baboons to clarify the healing cost of physical attacks including secondary damage of wounds. Observations were conducted daily between August 2016 and July 2017 in Kenya

173. Enterococcus faecalis modulates immune activation and slows healing during wound infection. (PubMed)

Enterococcus faecalis modulates immune activation and slows healing during wound infection. Enterococcus faecalis is one of the most frequently isolated bacterial species in wounds yet little is known about its pathogenic mechanisms in this setting. Here, we used a mouse wound excisional model to characterize the infection dynamics of E faecalis and show that infected wounds result in 2 different states depending on the initial inoculum. Low-dose inocula were associated with short-term, low (...) -titer colonization whereas high-dose inocula were associated with acute bacterial replication and long-term persistence. High-dose infection and persistence were also associated with immune cell infiltration, despite suppression of some inflammatory cytokines and delayed wound healing. During high-dose infection, the multiple peptide resistance factor, which is involved in resisting immune clearance, contributes to E faecalis fitness. These results comprehensively describe a mouse model

174. Volatile organic compound detection as a potential means of diagnosing cutaneous wound infections. (PubMed)

Volatile organic compound detection as a potential means of diagnosing cutaneous wound infections. Chronic cutaneous wound infections and surgical site infections (SSIs) present a huge burden on the healthcare system and can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. Current diagnostic methods of identifying and confirming infection involve culture-based and molecular methods. Both techniques are time-consuming and delays commonly lead to untargeted empirical treatment. An ideal diagnostic (...) method would be noninvasive and highly sensitive and detect pathogenic organisms with a high degree of accuracy to allow targeted treatment. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a diverse group of carbon-based molecules produced and released by humans and microorganisms. VOC detection has the potential in aiding cutaneous wound infection diagnostics using noninvasive and time-efficient methods. This review provides a comprehensive update on VOCs produced and emitted by bacteria commonly associated

Routine Use of Topical Bacitracin to Prevent Sternal Wound Infections After Cardiac Surgery. The development of sternal wound infections remains a serious complication after cardiac surgery. A number of studies have assessed the use of topical antibiotics placed on the sternal edges. We evaluated the routine use of bacitracin ointment applied over the sternotomy skin incision as a prophylactic measure against sternal wound infections.A retrospective review of all coronary artery bypass graft (...) and valve surgery cases performed at a single institution between 2006 and 2015 was performed (n = 1,495). Appropriate preoperative intravenous antibiotics were administered for all patients. Bacitracin topical antibiotic ointment was routinely applied to the sternal surgical incision after skin closure for all patients during this period. The incidence of sternal wound infection was assessed.During this 9-year experience, no episodes of deep sternal wound infections were observed, compared

176. A systematic review of clinical effectiveness of wound edge protector devices in reducing surgical site infections in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. (PubMed)

A systematic review of clinical effectiveness of wound edge protector devices in reducing surgical site infections in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. This article highlights the clinical effectiveness of wound edge protector devices (WEPD) in preventing the post-operative surgical site infections (SSI) in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. Using the principles of meta-analysis and systematic review as recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration, the data from selected randomized (...) , controlled trials (RCTs) were analysed to generate summated outcome and presented in the form of odds ratio (OR). Eighteen RCTs on 3808 reported the effectiveness of WEPD in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. The use of WEPD was associated with the reduced incidence of overall SSI (OR 0.59; 95% CI 0.43-0.81; z = 3.30; p < 0.001) and superficial SSI (OR 0.42; 95% CI 0.18-0.95; z = 2.09; p < 0.04). In addition, WEPD also successfully reduced the risk of SSI in clean-contaminated wounds (OR 0.67; 95% CI

Predictive ability of the Society for Vascular Surgery Wound, Ischemia, and foot Infection (WIfI) classification system after first-time lower extremity revascularizations. The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) Wound, Ischemia and foot Infection (WIfI) classification system was proposed to predict 1-year amputation risk and potential benefit from revascularization. Our goal was to evaluate the predictive ability of this scale in a real-world selection of patients undergoing a first-time lower (...) extremity revascularization for chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI).From 2005 to 2014, 1336 limbs underwent a first-time lower extremity revascularization for CLTI, of which 992 had sufficient data to classify all three WIfI components (wound, ischemia, and foot infection). Limbs were stratified into the SVS WIfI clinical stages (from 1 to 4) for 1-year amputation risk estimation, a novel WIfI composite score from 0 to 9 (that weighs all WIfI variables equally), and a novel WIfI mean score from 0

Wound protectors in reducing surgical site infections in lower gastrointestinal surgery: an updated meta-analysis. Surgical site infection (SSI) is a common complication in gastrointestinal surgery. Wound protection devices are being increasingly used in the attempt to reduce infection rates. We performed a meta-analysis to determine if wound protectors reduce the incidence of SSIs in lower gastrointestinal surgery.MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched between 1946 and 2016. Randomized (...) controlled trials comparing wound protector versus no wound protector in lower gastrointestinal surgery were included. Our primary outcome was surgical site infection. Subgroup analysis was conducted comparing single-ring versus dual-ring wound protectors.Twelve RCTs with 3029 participants were included. There was a significant decrease in the odds of developing SSI in the wound protector group (OR 0.64, 95% CI 0.45-0.90, P < 0.01, I 2 = 55%).
