Title Relationship between maceration and wound healing on diabeti
Abstract Abstract The aim of this study was to clarify the relationship between maceration and wound healing. A prospective longitudinal design was used in this study. The wound condition determined the type of dressings used and the dressing change frequency. A total of 62 participants with diabetic foot ulcers (70 wounds) were divided into two groups: non-macerated (n=52) and macerated wounds (n=18). Each group was evaluated weekly using the Bates–JensenWound Assessment Tool, with follow-ups until week 4. The Mann–Whitney U test showed that the changes in the wound area in week 1 were faster in the non-macerated group than the macerated group (P=0⋅02). The Pearson correlation analysis showed a moderate correlation between maceration and wound healing from enrolment until week 4 (P=0⋅002). After week 4, the Kaplan–Meier analysis showed that the non-macerated wounds healed significantly faster than the macerated wounds (log-rank test=19⋅378, P=0⋅000). The Cox regression analysis confirmed thatmaceration was a significant and independent predictor of wound healing in this study (adjusted hazard ratio, 0⋅324; 95% CI, 0⋅131–0⋅799; P=0⋅014). The results of this study demonstrated that there is a relationship between maceration and wound healing. Changes in the wound area can help predict the healing of wounds with maceration in clinical settings.
