Clinical challenges of using ambulatory VAC therapy in diabetic foot ulcer treatment
AbstractWound management continues to present a major health challenge throughout the world. In an attempt to meet the demanding difficulties encountered in the management of chronic ulcers, clinicians often seek the intervention of technology and evidence-based methods for assistance. Advanced wound technology has conveyed a series of benefits in wound care, and whilst these advancements have been appreciated, it is equally important to emphasise that such technology has introduced some new challenges for clinicians. The purpose of this paper was to highlight the practical and clinical challenges encountered by the authors when using ambulatory vacuum assisted closure therapy in the management of diabetic foot ulceration.
