Background: The wound dressings perform a crucial role in the cutaneous wounds' management due to their ability to protect wounds and promote dermal and epidermal tissue regeneration. Objective: the aim of the present study to evaluate the effectiveness of using hydrogel/nano silver-based dressing vs. traditional dressing on diabetic foot wound healing.
Approach: Sixty patients with type-2 diabetes hospitalized for diabetic foot wound treatment were recruited from selected Surgical departments at Kasr Al-Aini university hospital.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Diabetes Mellitus||Procedure: Hydrogel/nano silver-based dressing||Not Applicable|
Data Collection: The patients of group-I wounds were cleaned using normal saline; then, the wounds were closed firmly with hyderogel\nano silver dressing. The dressing was changed every two days according to dressing manufacture instruction. When the dressing was opened after three days, the wound was assessed for granulation tissue, wound, and discharge size.
The patients of group II wounds were dresses using a traditional method, cleaned by normal saline, use of betadine antiseptic; then they were secured with clean linen gauze. The dressing was changed once daily. The wound healing process of the two groups was then assessed for three consecutive weeks.
