共计183例患者接受了筛选,其中84例被纳入研究;41例参与者被分配至压迫组,43例被分配至对照组。本试验在发生23次蜂窝织炎发作后进行了计划的期中分析,当时压迫组6例参与者(15%)和对照组17例参与者(40%)已发生蜂窝织炎发作(风险比,0.23;95%置信区间[CI],0.09~0.59;P=0.002;相对危险度[事后分析],0.37;95% CI,0.16~0.84;P=0.02),本试验因压迫组效果良好而终止。压迫组3例参与者(7%)和对照组6例参与者(14%)因蜂窝织炎住院(风险比,0.38;95% CI,0.09~1.59)。两组的大多数生活质量结局无差异。本试验期间未发生不良事件。



在患腿部慢性水肿和蜂窝织炎的患者中进行的这项小规模、单中心、非盲法试验表明,压迫疗法与保守疗法相比降低了蜂窝织炎的复发率(由澳大利亚Calvary Public Hospital Bruce资助;在澳大利亚新西兰临床试验注册系统[Australian and New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry]的注册号为ACTRN12617000412336)。
