Abstract

This preliminary study investigates the use of a radiant-heat bandage, Warm-Up Active Wound Therapy, as a new approach to the treatment of patients with chronic venous ulcers. Thirteen patients were randomly assigned to either conventional therapy or Warm-Up Active Wound Therapy for inpatient treatment of chronic venous stasis ulcers. Our results indicated that Warm-Up Active Wound Therapy is more effective than conventional therapy in healing chronic venous ulcers, and patients reported a significant reduction in wound pain. Warm-Up Active Wound Therapy also was found to be a safe treatment modality with no adverse events occurring in any patient.
