Summary of "When Testosterone Needs to be Contrasted: A Preliminary Study of Scar Prevention in Transmen Top Surgery with an Innovative Galenic Preparation."

Transmen are individuals who live a marked incongruence between the assigned gender and the experienced gender. Crucial and life-changing steps in their transition are testosterone treatment and mastectomy to remove the stigma of feminine identity. After surgery, patients' attention turns to the scars, often not aesthetically pleasant. We thus created an innovative galenic preparation for scar treatment after surgery composed by spironolactone, alfa bisabolol and silicone gel. Functional outcomes, side effects and satisfaction were assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

First-released version of study results in a series of data collection efforts used for the purpose of generating further interest in and or funding of a research study.

Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.

A sharply elevated, irregularly shaped, progressively enlarging scar resulting from formation of excessive amounts of collagen in the dermis during connective tissue repair. It is differentiated from a hypertrophic scar (CICATRIX, HYPERTROPHIC) in that the former does not spread to surrounding tissues.

A potent androgenic metabolite of TESTOSTERONE. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is generated by a 5-alpha reduction of testosterone. Unlike testosterone, DHT cannot be aromatized to ESTRADIOL therefore DHT is considered a pure androgenic steroid.

A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.
