GANGRENE




BASIC INFORMATION


"For Informational Use Only"
For more detailed information contact your health care provider
about options that may be available for your specific situation.


DESCRIPTION

Gangrene is a condition in which body tissues die, and ultimately decay, as a result of inadequate oxygen supply. It can affect any body part, but most frequently affects extremities such as the toes, feet, fingers, hands, and arms. Gangrene of the internal organs is especially dangerous.

gangrene


There are two types of gangrene: wet gangrene and dry gangrene. See "Causes" for a description of the two types of gangrene.





FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

Wet Gangrene:
  • Swelling in infected part.

  • Tenderness in infected part.

  • Severe and rapidly worsening pain.

  • As infection progresses, the affected tissue changes color, usually from pink to deep red to gray-green or purple.

Dry Gangrene:
  • Dull, aching pain in affected area.
  • Coldness in the affected area.
  • Pain and pallor of the affected area are early signs.





CAUSES

Wet Gangrene:
  • Wet gangrene is the result of a wound or injury that becomes infected. The infection prevents adequate venous drainage, depriving the area of needed blood supply and oxygen. The disruption in oxygen supply in turn promotes the infection. (See symptoms above.) If left untreated, wet gangrene can lead to shock and death in a matter of days. Fortunately, careful hygiene can usually prevent this type of gangrene.


  • Dry gangrene does not involve bacterial infection. It is caused by stopped or reduced blood flow, which results in oxygen-deprived tissue. Reduced blood flow may be caused by injury, hardening of the arteries, poor circulation, diabetes, or blockage in a blood vessel. The condition most often occurs in the feet and toes. (See symptoms above.)


  • Sometimes gangrene is caused by frostbite. In frostbite, the oxygen-deprived area dies, but the gangrene does not spread to any other area. As the flesh dies, it may be painful, but once the skin is dead, it becomes numb and slowly darkens.




GANGRENE RISKS

The risk of developing gangrene is higher than normal for people with diabetes, who smoke or drink excessively or who have poor circulation in general. Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle decrease the likelihood of developing gangrene and also aid in recovery should you require surgery for this condition.



TREATMENT


CONSIDERATIONS

  • The only treatment for established gangrene is surgical removal of the affected area.


  • For Wet gangrene, treatment with antibiotics and surgical removal of the dead tissue are usually necessary. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be employed as well. See Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for more information.


  • Slowly developing dry gangrene may be reversed by arterial surgery. Chelation is an alternative. See Chelation Therapy for more information. If an acute arterial obstruction is involved, emergency surgery must be performed.


  • See Arteriosclerosis/Atherosclerosis and Circulation Disorders for more information.


  • Raynaud's syndrome, a condition that affects the small arteries of the fingers and toes, can lead to gangrene if not treated. See Raynaud's Disease / Raynaud's Phenomenon for a more complete discussion of this condition.





  • HERBAL & HOLISTIC RECOMMENDATIONS


    HERBS

  • Butcher's Broom is important for circulation.


  • Bromelain and Turmeric (curcumin) are good for reducing swelling and inflammation.


  • Olive Leaf is good for fighting infections.


  • Other beneficial herbs include Bayberry, Cayenne (capsicum), Echinacea, Ginkgo Biloba, and Goldenseal.

  • Goldenseal made into a poultice can be directly applied to the abscess. Or apply alcohol-free Goldenseal Extract to sterile gauze and place the gauze over the abscess.

    CAUTION! Do not take Goldenseal on a daily basis for more than one week at a time, and DO NOT USE IT DURING PREGNANCY. If you have a history of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or glaucoma, use it only under a health care provider's supervision.

    Goldenseal Root Tincture, 100% Organic, 2 fl. oz.

    Echinacea Goldenseal Tincture, Nature's Way, Alcohol Free, 1 fl. oz.

  • A poultice that combines Lobelia and Slippery Elm bark is soothing and fights infection.


  • Milk Thistle, taken in capsule form, is good for the liver and aids in cleansing the bloodstream.


  • Tea Tree Oil, applied externally, is a potent natural antiseptic that kills infectious organisms without harming healthy cells. Mix 1 part tea tree oil with 4 parts water and apply the mixture with a cotton ball 3 times daily. It will destroy bacteria, hasten healing, and prevent infection from spreading.
