Effects of Circadian Rhythm Disorders on Wound Healing and Strength of Bowel Anastomosis in Rats

Key words: 

Many body systems, especially the immune system, are affected by circadian rhythm disorders (CRDs). This study investigated the effects of shift lag on wound healing and bowel anastomosis in rats....

Visualization of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Distributions Within Pressure Ulcer Tissue Using the Wound Blotting Method: A Case Report and Discussion

Key words: 

Wound blotting can be used to visualize the protein distribution on a wound bed through protein collection by attaching a nitrocellulose membrane to the wound surface. This study checked for consistency between the protein distributions determined by wound blotting and those determined by removal of the tissue....

Surface Acoustic Wave Patch Therapy Affects Tissue Oxygenation in Ischemic Feet

Key words: 

  Abstract: Introduction. Transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2) less than 30 mm Hg at the toe leads to local tissue hypoxia and nonhealing wounds. Studies regularly illustrate that TcPO2 values are strong predictors of healing and can accurately demonstrate altered levels when extremities have restricted blood flow....
