[1] The rationale behind this technique, which is not an obliteration method, is to facilitate new bone formation underneath and epithelialization over the surface of the fascioperiosteal flap.
Topical silver sulfadiazine cream was chosen because of its antimicrobial spectrum of action, antifungal properties, and promotion of epithelialization while being able to penetrate eschars and necrotic tissue.
Therefore, this study was done to establish the role of curcumin in inflammation on epithelialization and collagenization of buccal mucosa of rabbits.
Interestingly, a sharp (40%) reduction was observed in epithelialization period of the treated wounds Figure4.
The pathological evaluation revealed more collagenization, neovascularization, and epithelialization as well as less tissue necrosis, inflammation, and granulation tissue formation in the case group compared with the control group.
In case, skin is lost, but perichondrium is preserved, it will "take" a thin skin graft or else granulation and epithelialization can occur.
Overall, the company said, the results of this study showed that healing of skin grafts occurred more rapidly in ADRC-treated animals than in controls with more rapid formation of new skin (epithelialization), earlier restoration of skin function (ability to resist water evaporation), and improved skin elasticity.
In this study, the authors examined the effects of OXY and an OXY receptor antagonist [atosiban (ATO)] on skin wound healing, considering epithelialization and neovascularization.
Wound contraction area was assessed by digital Visitrak device (Smith & Nephew) [23-25] for determining epithelialization time and percentage of wound contraction compared to wound on initial day.
Based on the results of prior studies [10, 11], the spindle and transcutaneous adapter were constructed to be smooth and highly polished, in an attempt to promote epithelialization of the skin-implant interface and limit abscess formation creating a stable stoma at the skin-implant interface.
The median period until complete epithelialization after ESD was significantly shorter in the LB group (LB group versus non-LB group: 51.0 days versus 105 days; P = 0.012).
MSCs thus have a potent secretome capable of influencing the activation, migration, and proliferation of different cells involved in the wound healing process to promote angiogenesis, epithelialization, and fibroproliferation.
