International Wound Journal — Jiang G, Zhu Y, Zhang M, et al. | February 09, 2022
The risk factors of poor wound healing (PWH) in spinal tuberculosis (STB) patients are investigated.
This retrospective study included a total of 232 STB patients who had undergone debridement surgery.
PWH was observed in 30 of the 232 patients.
Following are identified as independent risk factors for PWH following surgery for STB: pulmonary tuberculosis, long operation time and low postoperative albumin level.
Researchers support making efforts to cure pulmonary tuberculosis, control operation time and supervise postoperative serum albumin to lower the risk of PWH among STB patients.
