Appropriate Timing of Early Postoperative Botulinum Toxin Type A Injection for Thyroidectomy Scar Management: A Split-Scar Study.

Summary of "Appropriate Timing of Early Postoperative Botulinum Toxin Type A Injection for Thyroidectomy Scar Management: A Split-Scar Study."

Botulinum toxin type A (BTxA) injection is effective for surgical scar prevention. Although some studies have aimed to confirm the efficacy of BTxA injection at different time points, none has been conducted to determine the most appropriate timing of injection for scar management. The authors predicted that the injection of BTxA at different times during the wound healing process would cause differing scar quality improvement and clarify unknown molecular mechanisms.
