146. Nutritional interventions for preventing and treating pressure ulcers. (Abstract)

Nutritional interventions for preventing and treating pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers affect 10% of people in hospitals and older people are at highest risk. The correlation between nutritional intake and the development of pressure ulcers is suggested by several studies, but the results are inconsistent.To evaluate the effectiveness of enteral and parenteral nutrition on the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.The Cochrane Wounds Group Specialised Trials Register and the Cochrane (...) Central register of Controlled Trials were searched in September 2002. An additional search of PubMed and Cinahl and hand search of conference proceedings and journals was performed, bibliographies of relevant articles were examined and experts in the field as well as manufacturers were contacted in order to find additional literature that may be relevant.Randomised controlled trials evaluating the effectiveness of enteral or parenteral nutrition on the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers

Prospective cohort study of routine use of risk assessment scales for prediction of pressure ulcers. To evaluate whether risk assessment scales can be used to identify patients who are likely to get pressure ulcers.Prospective cohort study.Two large hospitals in the Netherlands.1229 patients admitted to the surgical, internal, neurological, or geriatric wards between January 1999 and June 2000.Occurrence of a pressure ulcer of grade 2 or worse while in hospital.135 patients developed pressure (...) ulcers during four weeks after admission. The weekly incidence of patients with pressure ulcers was 6.2% (95% confidence interval 5.2% to 7.2%). The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.56 (0.51 to 0.61) for the Norton scale, 0.55 (0.49 to 0.60) for the Braden scale, and 0.61 (0.56 to 0.66) for the Waterlow scale; the areas for the subpopulation, excluding patients who received preventive measures without developing pressure ulcers and excluding surgical patients, were 0.71

150. Hormone replacement therapy and prevention of pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers. (Abstract)

Hormone replacement therapy and prevention of pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers. Pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers are common chronic wounds. Oestrogens in the form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) might have an effect on wound healing, but this possibility has not been studied in detail. Using a case-cohort study including elderly patients in the UK General Practice Research Database, we showed that patients who received HRT were less likely to develop a venous leg ulcer (age (...) -adjusted relative risk 0.65 [95% CI 0.61-0.69]) or a pressure ulcer (0.68 [0.62-0.76]) than those who did not use HRT. Therefore, we believe that HRT could be beneficial for the prevention of these wounds.

Pressure relieving interventions for preventing and treating diabetic foot ulcers. Foot ulceration is thought to affect 15% of all people with diabetes at some time during their life.To assess the effectiveness of pressure relieving interventions in the prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.Searches of 19 databases, hand searching of journals, bibliographies and identification of unpublished work by written communication with recognised experts in the diabetic foot.Randomised (...) controlled trials evaluating pressure relieving interventions either in the prevention or the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. There was no restriction on articles/trials based on language or publication status.Data extraction and assessment of study quality was undertaken by two reviewers independently. Each trial was analysed separately, no pooling of results was possible due to the difference in patients, comparisons and outcomes.Prevention 4 RCTs of pressure relieving interventions were identified
