About End-Stage Renal Disease
Impaired renal function has multiple implications on wound healing. Therefore, a multi-disciplinary approach should be ideally used to achieve favorable outcomes in wound healing and to improve the general health of patients with impaired renal function. Our treatments at the Hyper Healing Wound Care Clinic can help the ESRD patient with dermatological issues, non-healing wounds, post-acute surgical wounds, dehiscent AV fistula and PD catheter site wounds.
The common risk factors for poor wound healing observed in patients with CKD and ESRD, include poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, chronic venous insufficiency, and aging. ESRD patients have a unique spectrum of wounds related to impaired calcium–phosphorus metabolism, including calciphylaxis, in addition to having the risk factors presented by CKD patients. Overall, there is a wide range of uremic toxins that may affect local mechanisms of wound healing. The staff at Hyper Healing Wound Care Center has the experience with a broad array of wounds, especially in the complex renal patient.
Our physicians and nurse practitioners follow patients at our wound centers as well as at a variety of Assisted Living Facilities from Riverview to Lutz. By referring an ESRD patient to us at the early stages of their symptoms, you can ensure that your patient’s outcomes will be addressed timely and efficiently.
