Disease relevance of Occlusive Dressings


High impact information on Occlusive Dressings

  • RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Fifty patients were treated with topical phenytoin, and 50 patients matched for age, sex, and ulcer areas, depth, chronicity, and infection were dressed with dry sterile occlusive dressing [5].
  • Forty-five children with 59 discrete burn wounds and from whom MRSA were isolated were treated with 2% mupirocin ointment under occlusive dressings, applied twice daily for 5 days [6].
  • The importance of the awareness of the presence of mycotic lesions and their possible spread with the application of steroid ointments under occlusive dressings in a psoriatic patient is stressed [7].
  • Test agents were applied to the untanned midback under an occlusive dressing for 6 hr and then exposed to broad-spectrum radiation containing UV-A and visible wavelengths from a Xenon arc source [8].
  • A standard dose of theophylline gel, equivalent to 17 mg anhydrous theophylline, was applied to an area of skin 2 cm in diameter over the upper abdomen under an occlusive dressing, and serial theophylline levels were measured; 25 studies were performed in 20 infants of less than or equal to 30 weeks gestation [9].

Associations of Occlusive Dressings with chemical compounds

  • Due to its ability to accelerate wound contraction and healing, chitosan hydrogel may become accepted as an occlusive dressing for wound management [17].
  • Measurement of plasma concentrations and percent urinary excretion of the metabolites in healthy men was performed following occlusive dressing of dexamethasone 17,21-dipropionate cream and ointment [18].
  • Adult male volunteers wore three topical systems, which were applied to the upper back daily (Monday through Friday) for 6 weeks: (1) TTD with no pretreatment of application site; (2) TTD with pretreatment of application site using triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% cream; and (3) an inactive occlusive dressing (control) [19].
  • In 28 patients with vitiligo, 5% fluorouracil cream was applied daily to vitiliginous lesions under occlusive dressings, following an epidermal abrasion on the first day [20].
  • Initially, a double-blinded trial was undertaken on each preparation individually against placebo, as the recommended method of application was different for EMLA (2.5 g applied for 60 min under an occlusive dressing) and the amethocaine formulation (0.5 g applied for 30 min) [21].

Gene context of Occlusive Dressings

  • In this study, we compared the usefulness of combination therapy of bifonazole (Mycospor cream) + 10% urea ointment (Urepearl) (overlapping application group = group I) with occlusive dressing therapy with the same agents (group II) in the treatment of MTTP, and obtained the following results [22].
  • To evaluate the effects of TGF-beta on healing of partial-thickness injuries in vivo, wounds (20 x 20 x 0.6 mm) were created on the dorsal thoracolumbar region of adult pigs by an electrokeratome and were treated daily for 5 days after injury with vehicle or vehicle containing 0.1 or 1 microgram/ml TGF-beta and covered with occlusive dressing [23].
  • The blanching of corticosteroids after occlusive dressing is difficult to recognize by the isotherms of AGA Thermovision [24].
  • Occlusion decreased the permeation amount of PAI-2 from 46% to 15% due to losses on the occlusive dressing (P=0.001) [25].
  • Because occlusive dressings and some creams have been found to speed epithelialization of blade-induced wounds, we studied the effect of two occlusive dressings and a polyglycerylmethacrylate cream containing low concentration of fibronectin on epithelialization in second-degree burn wounds [26].
