Efficacy of Chinese and Western Medical Techniques in Treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers With Necrotizing Fasciitis of the Lower Leg.

To determine a new method of leg salvage therapy, we need to analyze and assess the clinical effectiveness of Chinese and Western medical products in the treatment of acute diabetic foot ulcers necrotizing fasciitis of the lower leg. A total of 46 patients with severe diabetic foot ulcers and necrotizing fasciitis of the lower leg were treated with surgical debridement, bone drilling, open joint fusion, and microskin implantation. Wounds were treated with moisture-exposed burn therapy and moisture-exposed burn ointment; related disorders were also treated successfully; wounds were also treated properly. Patients' lives and wound healing were not only greatly reduced when it comes to severe diabetic foot ulcers complicated by necrotizing fasciitis of the lower leg, but also greatly reduced the incidences of high amputation and disability.

On-site Gram staining that increases a post-test probability of an ominous infection: a case of necrotizing fasciitis caused by Vibrio vulnificus: a case report.

Case study The case of a 65-year-old Asian man with alcoholic cirrhosis complicated by esophageal varices was admitted to Saga Medical School Hospital's emergency division in early August, suffering of acute pain, redness, swelling, and purpura of the lower extremities. Raw seafood ingestion, as demonstrated in this patient prior to his recent admission, predisposes those with a chronic liver disease to a life-threatening Vibrio vulnificus infection. Gram-negative rods were morphologically compatible with V. vulnificus, according to Gram stain of the small amount of discharge from the test lesion's incision. V. vulnificus by mass spectrometry, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization, and wound culture were recovered Gram-negative rods, which were later identified as V. vulnificus by mass spectrometry, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization. Conclusions The pre-test probability of V. vulnificus infection was bolstered by on-site Gram staining in the emergency division.

Necrotizing Fasciitis of the Breast: A Case Series and Review of the Literature.

Abstract Background: Primary necrotizing fasciitis of the breast is a rare medical condition and, therefore, a challenge for the clinical physician. Patients and Methods: In the current article, we discuss three cases that we treated in our surgical department using a combination of empirical antibiotic therapy, complete surgical debridement in stages, and negative pressure wound therapy. Early clinical signs as well as risk factors are both of utmost importance.
