Ligament Damage

LEVAMED-Image-quer-04

Explore the multiple education and training programs provided by medi®

The potential for torn ligaments and damage to the ankle

Ligaments are connective tissues between two bones that help stabilize the joint. In general, they are relatively inelastic, which means they become lax or rupture completely if they are overstretched.

Ligament injuries of the ankle joint often occur during sporting activities. Ruptures of the lateral ligaments and capsular injuries in the ankle joint happen most often when the ankle is bent when landing. Of particular risk for injuries are those playing football, skiing, martial arts and similar sports. In most cases, the knee twists inwards with the upper body bending backwards at the same time. The fibers very often tear where the ligament is connected into the thigh bone.

Chronic ligamentous instability can lead to excessive wear and tear of the articular cartilage and the onset of osteoarthritis. This is why you are recommended to consult an orthopedic specialist or sports doctor, even if the sprain seems harmless.

Venous Leg Ulcer

Venous stasis ulcers

Venous leg ulcers are wounds or sores on the lower leg, usually near the inside of the ankle, that have difficulty healing because of poor blood circulation.  The veins in the legs are not transporting blood back to the heart due to improperly functioning valves which is called venous insufficiency.  When left untreated, ulceration occurs as cells in the tissue do not receive enough oxygen and nutrition.

The treatment for Venous Stasis ulcers is centered around effective compression therapy to regenerate proper circulation and get oxygen and nutrients to the affected limb.  This is coordinated with necessary debridement of bad tissue and exudate management to maintain a proper wound healing environment. proper circulation and get oxygen and nutrients to the affected limb.  This is coordinated with necessary debridement of bad tissue and exudate management to maintain a proper wound healing environment.

Super Absorbent Dressings

What are Super Absorbent Polymer dressings?

Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) dressings are designed to absorb and retain moderate-to-heavy amounts of exudate in wounds with excessive drainage while maintaining a moist wound bed. These dressings contain polymer material that can hold several times its weight in moisture and convert it to a gel-like material that can be held away from the wound bed.

When should a SAP dressing be used?

When exudate is not appropriately managed, it has been known to slow wound-healing and negatively impact a patient’s life. SAP dressings have some of the highest absorption rates and capacities on the market, making them an optimal choice for heavily draining wounds. Due to their ability to lock away moisture, SAP dressings are a common choice to be used with compression therapy bandages and garments.

What is a chronic wound?

An acute wound is caused by a traumatic encounter such as a surgery or injury that can happen in an accident. Chronic wounds are those that get “stuck” in the healing process due to various reasons. The wound-healing process can get derailed due to poor circulation, edema, infections and nutritional factors. A chronic wound care specialist can help identify these conditions and get patients back on a healing path.

Types of Wounds

mediven-ulcer-kit-donning-IM-0703

What are the various wound types?

Wounds are classified into six types of wounds based on how the wound is developed. 

Abrasions – scrapes or scratches on the surface layers of the skin.

Avulsions – the tearing of the skin, usually from a traumatic incident. 

Incisions – a smooth cut like those during surgery.

Laceration – an abnormal or rough cut that may occur from an accident.

Punctures – a wound that permeated through several skin layers, caused by a sharp, pointed object.

Ulceration – an open wound that develops from within the body itself due to health conditions like poor circulation or diabetes.

What is a chronic wound?

Wounds are classified as either acute, or chronic based on how long the wound has been prevalent. An acute wound is caused by a traumatic encounter, such as a surgery or injury that can occur in an accident.   Chronic wounds are those that get “stuck” in the healing process due to various reasons.  The wound-healing process can get derailed due to poor circulation, edema, infections and nutritional factors. A chronic wound care specialist can help identify these conditions and get patients back on a healing path.

Breast Cancer Arm Sleeves

How to treat early stage lymphedema header c 1

How do lymphedema compression sleeves work?

For early-stage, or mild lymphedema, a compression arm sleeve or glove or gauntlet is typically prescribed for initial treatment. These garments apply pressure to the arm, hand or both to promote lymph fluid movement to the body core.  Properly fit compression arm sleeves are tighter at the wrist/hand area and gradually decrease pressure up the length of the arm to move the lymph fluid out of the arm.

A lymphedema therapist or a durable medical equipment store can assist with finding the right compression arm sleeve. The medi® lymphedema program has a selection of arm sleeves to best meet the needs of the patient:

What compression arm sleeves are best for early-stage lymphedema?

The severity of lymphedema determines the applied pressure required, the stiffness or containment level of the material and the style of the product.    Early-stage lymphedema typically has relatively low edema or swelling levels.  Also, in most cases this will be a patient’s first experience wearing a compression therapy garment. This entry-level garment must provide a positive patient experience so it is more easily adapted into a lifestyle routine. Introductory arm sleeves are usually a 20-30 mmHg compression level but can be prescribed by doctors and therapists at higher levels (30-40 mmHg).  These garments typically have a soft texture and are highly elastic for application purposes. 

Effective compression therapy is when the correct amount of compression is applied to the arm with consistent patient compliance.  Building upon the beloved mediven comfort line of ultra-soft, sensitive and easy-to-apply lower extremity compression, these same features were applied in an upper extremity solution to deliver successful therapy.

 

How to select the right compression arm sleeve?

The therapeutic need of the patient is at the forefront of concern when determining the correct compression garment for a condition. A clinician will determine the appropriate compression level, either a 15-20 mmHg, 20-30 mmHg, or 30-40 mmHg for most early-stage treatments.  The style of garment will also be indicated to determine the necessary limb coverage and suspension needs. Lastly, the stiffness or elasticity level will be determined by the current edema level status. The more edema that is present, the stiffer the material will need to be to contain the limb size.

Factors outside of the therapeutic needs will come into play such as patient lifestyle, limb size, and dexterity which all help specify the right product selection.  Patients who use their hands at work may need more of an elastic product with greater flexibility.  Another factor for consideration would be if a caregiver is needed to help apply a compression arm sleeve, for example. The medi portfolio of compression solutions is comprised of mediven elastic garments and circaid inelastic wraps.  From ready-to-wear to custom options, and from elastic to inelastic varieties, medi has the right compression solution for lymphedema.

Other mediven elastic arm sleeve alternatives:

The easy and adjustable upper extremity solution

An alternative to the stretch of elastic garments, the circaid juxtafit essentials is an inelastic garment available in both an arm and hand piece that have limited stretch when the circumference of the limb changes with movement of the body. The resistance of the garment will make compression levels rise and fall and multiple compression levels can be achieved all within this one garment. A perfect solution for those who need independent adjustability.
