Thanks to a cutting-edge treatment, Anton not only kept her toes, but also maintained normal movement in her foot. Grafix, cryopreserved human placental tissue, was applied to the surface of Anton's wound. She also received hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a medical treatment in which patients breathe 100 percent oxygen while under pressure in a hyperbaric chamber, and wore a total contact cast to maximize offloading.

Leishmania is an obligate intracellular pathogen that invades phagocytic host cells. Approximately 30 different species of Phlebotomine sand flies can transmit this parasite either anthroponotically or zoonotically through their bites. Leishmaniasis has been reported as one of the most dangerous neglected tropical diseases, second only to malaria in parasitic causes of death. People can carry some species of Leishmania for long periods without becoming ill, and symptoms depend on the form of the disease.
To most, an operating room and a manufacturing plant are as different as any two places can be. But not to Dennis Orgill. Orgill showed for the first time how to regenerate both the epidermis and the dermis of the skin. He developed a process of infusing a collagen skin graft — known as a scaffold — with healthy cells to promote regeneration. When applied to the wound, the cell-infused scaffold was found to promote healing.

Low-power exercise may be the key to speeding wound healing rates in patients with diabetes, a new study suggests. Previous research showed moderate-intensity exercise to improve wound healing in both mice and human subjects, but little was known about the impact different intensities could have on healing rates.

For clinical leaders on the front lines of healthcare, keeping patients and staff safe is the No. 1 priority. The products and practices that are utilized to support infection prevention are the same products and practices that support the safety of the employee as care is given. If facilities focus on one goal and not the other, they won't realize the desired outcome for patients and healthcare workers. It's critical in today's environment to always address both.
