The Balancing Effect: The Influence of pH on Chronic Wound Healing

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain association between wound pH and healing process and progress
  • Correlate the beneficial impact of slightly acidic pH in controlling wound infection, increasing antimicrobial activity, altering protease activity, releasing oxygen, reducing toxicity of bacterial end products, and enhancing epithelialization and angiogenesis
  • Recognize the deleterious effects of high pH in the wound bed and the ability of high pH to encourage pathogen growth
  • Examine the importance of purity of hypochlorous acid preservative in a cleanser solution, and the role of the low pH

Venous Leg Ulcers, Micronized Purified Flavonoid Fraction and the Data

Flavonoids are the most abundant bioactive compounds all around the world and are emerging as an important source of new wound healing therapies. Most wound healing medicinal plants possess multiple flavonoids that act synergistically or collectively. Flavonoids also have venotonic and lymphotonic properties and act on leukocytes and endothelium, resulting in decreased inflammation and permeability. This session will examine and evaluate published data related to the role of micronized purified flavonoid fractions (MPFF/diosmin/ hesperidin) as part of standard of care for management of venous leg ulcers.
