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.

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 co...
Prostatic epithelial cells and their high expressions of CKIP-1 affect the TGF-β expression levels which might reduce the scar formation in remodeling stage at prostatic urethral wounds after wound repair.
There are less scar formations in some wounds after wound repair. Our earlier study had shown that the amount of collagen fibers in canine prostatic urethra wound were less than in bladder neck wound ...
Although preliminary studies have demonstrated safety and effectiveness of single replacement therapy for growth hormone deficiency or testosterone deficiency in heart failure (HF), no data are availa...
Staging of non-small cell lung carcinoma associated with scar is not discussed in detail in the current American Joint Committee on Cancer staging manual. The recommendation is to include the scar are...
There are very few studies that have evaluated premature ejaculation characteristics in regard to subtypes. Additionally, to our knowledge, there are no studies which have explored testosterone replac...
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of testosterone replacement therapy in frail elderly female hip fracture patients who have testosterone deficiency, and to obtain ...
This study is being undertaken to investigate the efficacy and safety of Juvista (given as an intradermal injection of 200ng/100µl per linear centimetre of wound margin) in the prevention...
Linked to previous Clinical Trial E92:069 in which biochemical effect of 1,4 diaminobutane was studied in human scar harvested at revision surgery after a 12 week application. Analytical d...
We hypothesize that testosterone replacement will improve mood and quality of life in older men with low testosterone and mild depression. Study subjects will receive either testosterone g...
Low testosterone is a condition that occurs when the body is unable to produce sufficient quantities of testosterone. The medical name for low testosterone is hypogonadism. Hypogonadism c...
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.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
