The effectiveness of topical hyaluronic acid on decreasing Interleukin-6 and acceleration of wound healing (Push Score) in Wagner II-III diabetic foot ulcer in Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya

Abstract

Background: A diabetic foot ulcer is a complication that often occurs in patients with diabetes mellitus. The healing process of a chronic wound is more complicated and requires more complex treatment. There is an increase in IL-1, IL6, and TNF-α pro-inflammatory cytokines in a chronic wound. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a component that has been used for a long time and is known to help the wound healing process. This study was at a time to determine the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid on the reduction of interleukin-6 in accelerating the healing of Wagner II-III diabetic foot ulcers.

Methods: This study is an experimental, randomized study of pre and post-test design on diabetic foot ulcer patients with the Wagner II-III classification who were controlled at the thoracic, cardiac, and vascular surgery polyclinic at Dr. Soetomo Hospital Surabaya. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 20 for Windows.

Result: About 39 samples are willing to participate in the study, divided into 20 samples in the treatment group and 19 in the control group. The mean concentrations of IL-6 in the treatment group before and after the intervention were 280.70±155.50 ng/ml and 126.60±145.60 ng/ml. There was a significant decrease in IL-6 levels (p<0.05) before and after the intervention. The mean concentrations of IL-6 in the control group pre and post were 315.20±127.40 ng/ml and 136.30±134.60 (p<0.05). The decrease in the control and treatment groups was no statistically significant difference (p>0.05). There was no significant difference in the PUSH Score (p>0.05) in the two groups before intervention/treatment. The decrease of wound area in the control and treatment groups were -4.80 ((-0.40)-(-24.50)) and -4.8 ((-0.70)-(-30.90)) (p>0.05).

Conclusion: Topical hyaluronic acid and wound care using 0.9% NaCl reduced interleukin-6 levels, PUSH scores, and wound area in Wagner II-III diabetic foot ulcers.
