ABSTRACT

Pressure ulcers represent an immense problem among elder and disabled population. This study was conducted to compare the therapeutic efficacy of both honey and ultraviolet radiation in healing of pressure ulcers in patients with complete or incomplete spinal cord injury. Forty five male patients participated in this study; having pelvic pressure ulcers ranging between grades III and IV. Fifteen patients received honey therapy and regular wound care (Group I ), 15 received ultraviolet -C radiation and regular wound care(Group II) and 15 received traditional physical therapy and regular wound care ( Control Group III).Evaluation of pressure ulcers was performed through measuring the wound surface area and volume of pressure ulcer ; pre-, 7 days post –initiation of therapy (Post I ), 14 days (Post II )and 21 days (Post III) by tracing method and a syringe respectively. There was a significant difference between ultraviolet –C and honey therapy groups before treatment regarding wound surface area, while there was no significant difference regarding the volume. There was non significant difference between both groups for the mean values of wound surface area and its` volume after 7, 14 and 21 days from the initiation of treatment. But, there was a percentage of improvement in favor of honey therapy. It has been concluded that the application of honey therapy was better than ultraviolet –C radiation for treating and improving the rate of healing process of patients with complete or incomplete spinal cord injury and having pelvic pressure ulcers.

Keywords: Honey therapy–Ultraviolet radiation–treatment–pressure ulcer.
