Intraoperative Hyaluronic Acid Gel Injection for Improvement of Scar Quality Following Reduction Mammaplasty
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of hyaluronic acid gel injections compared to saline injections in improving scar quality in patients undergoing breast reduction surgery. Hyaluronic acid has been implicated in scarless fetal healing, and the investigators therefore hypothesize that injections of hyaluronic acid gel into breast reduction incisions will improve their appearance compared to injections of saline.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A group of high molecular weight chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans that form aggregates with HYALURONIC ACID.
Mucoid states characterized by the elevated deposition and accumulation of mucin (mucopolysaccharides) in dermal tissue. The fibroblasts are responsible for the production of acid mucopolysaccharides (GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS) in the ground substance of the connective tissue system. When fibroblasts produce abnormally large quantities of mucopolysaccharides as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, or heparin, they accumulate in large amounts in the dermis.
A natural high-viscosity mucopolysaccharide with alternating beta (1-3) glucuronide and beta (1-4) glucosaminidic bonds. It is found in the UMBILICAL CORD, in VITREOUS BODY and in SYNOVIAL FLUID. A high urinary level is found in PROGERIA.
A therapeutic treatment typically involving INTRA-ARTICULAR INJECTIONS of HYALURONIC ACID and related compounds. The procedure is commonly used in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS with the therapeutic goal to restore the viscoelasticity of SYNOVIAL FLUID, decrease pain, improve mobility and restore the natural protective functions of hyaluronan in the joint.
The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.
The main objective is the long-term comparison (3 years and 4 months) of the efficacy and safety of repeated intra-articular administration of hyaluronic acid in the treatment of osteoarth...

Introduction: Tympanic membrane perforation represents a significant morbidity, especially if it occurs during a child's speech and language development. Recently, there has been an increased interes...
Hyaluronic acid solution injection can be an additional endoscopic modality for controlling bleeding in difficult cases when other techniques have failed. We evaluated 12 cases in which we used hyalur...
ABSTRACT: Thousands of patients receive hyaluronic acid filler injections, and the effects are generally considered acceptable. The acid rarely causes cutaneous reactions, which are only occasionally...
We compared three hyaluronic acid (HA) assays and analyzed the impact of their variations on FibroMeter scores.
Soft tissue fillers (STFs) together with botulinum toxin have profoundly improved our possibilities to rejuvenate the face and other parts of human body. Among many types of STFs currently used for es...
