  • [The gluteus maximus inferior split-muscle flap for the cover of ischiatic pressure ulcers: Study of 61 cases]. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: The gluteus maximus inferior split-muscle flap, simple to implement, provides coverage of ischial pressure sores while sparing muscle flaps usually used for this indication. The recurrence rate associated with the gluteus maximus inferior split-muscle flap is comparable to biceps femoris and gluteus maximus muscle flaps (totally harvested). It does not sacrifice function gluteus maximus muscle and can be performed in the valid patient. This flap keeps the Superior split-muscle, mobilized in case of sacral pressure ulcer. The gluteus maximus inferior split-muscle flap is the first intention flap indicated for the cover of cover of ischiatic pressure ulcers of less than 8cm in diameter.
  • Predictability of Pressure Ulcers Based on Operation Duration, Transfer Activity, and Body Mass Index Through the Use of an Alternating Decision Tree. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Among the factors identified, only "transfer activity" can be modified by nursing intervention. While shear force and friction are known to lead to pressure ulcers, transfer activity has not been identified as such. Our results suggest that transfer activities creating shear force and friction correlate with pressure ulcer development. The ADT algorithm was effective in determining prediction factors, especially for highly imbalanced data. Our three stumps ADT yielded accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity values of 72.1%±3.7%, 79.3%±18.1%, and 72.1%±3.8%, respectively.Transfer activity, identified as an interventional factor, can be modified through nursing interventions to prevent pressure ulcer formation. The ADT method was effective in identifying factors within largely imbalanced data. J. Med. Invest. 63: 248-255, August, 2016.
