A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Determine the Effects of Topical Insulin on Wound Healing

Abstract

Although the literature contains evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of insulin on wound healing, no suitable method for the routine administration of insulin has been reported. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted to determine the safety and efficacy of topical insulin on healing in 45 patients (29 men, mean age for both groups 40.62 years, range 12 to 71 years) with noninfected acute and chronic extremity wounds....

A Retrospective Study of High-Voltage, Pulsed Current as an Adjunctive Therapy in Limb Salvage for Chronic Diabetic Wounds of the Lower Extremity

Abstract:

Complex diabetic ulcers of the lower extremity can be slow to heal and may lead to amputation. A retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the effect of a form of electrical stimulation using high-voltage, pulsed current (HVPC) as an adjunct to a multidisciplinary approach to limb salvage for chronic diabetic wounds of the lower extremity....
