Early Effects of Combined Ultrasound and Electric Field Stimulation on Chronic, Recalcitrant Skin Ulcerations


This study evaluates a Combined Ultrasound and Electric Field Stimulation Device (CUSEFS) on chronic recalcitrant wounds. Patients chosen for the study suffered from Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU’s) or Venous Leg Ulcers (VLU’s). Twice weekly use of the CUSEFS for fifteen minutes a session was performed for one week on patients whose wound had shown no improvement in the previous two weeks. 96% of the subjects showed some response. The majority of these recalcitrant wounds closed between 8-20% in the first week of treatment with CUSEFS. CUSEFS has shown to be effective in initiating wound healing in chronic, stagnant, recalcitrant ulcers. The modality is easy to use, and has a place in the wound care armamentarium.
