Special Issue Introduction:

Wound care management fail to optimize due to a lack of efficient referral system, well-integrated multidisciplinary team, and specialized wound care unit. Thus, establishing a patient-centered wound care unit can ensure regular follow up, on-site wound assessment, avoid delay in early debridement, and continual care with education and prevention. The well-established clinical pathway conjoined with the adjuvant advanced technology, such as negative pressure wound therapy, hyper-bariatric oxygenation, and modern wound dressings, may offer the chance for intractable difficult wound or limb salvage.

    Aim: Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) has been discussed in several studies, but without a focus on peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which is a common comorbidity. This study aims to investigate the feasibility of NPWT in the treatment of DFU with PAD in regards to limb salvage and the clinical course. Methods: The authors retrospectively collected patients with DFU and PAD diagnosed with either Doppler ultrasound or angiography as the PAD study group. Patients with DFU but no PAD were enrolled as the non-PAD comparison group. NPWT was applied to both... Read more
