Interest in the Use of Dressings With Honey for Wound Healing After Excision of Pilonidal Cyst

2015-07-01 07:08:24 | BioPortfolio


The management of pilonidal cysts is a skin excision and under deep skin. Scarring requires regular dressings (daily for 15 days and then every 48 hours) until complete healing. This healing is obtained on average in 68 days. Some patients have difficulties in healing with a final healing achieved on average in 95 days. Some teams use honey to promote wound cavitary wounds (wound infection, pressure ulcers, varicose wound). The acceleration of wound healing is due to antibacterial properties and hyperosmolarity to reduce secretions. ) The use of honey in pilonidal cysts is not evaluated and may accelerate healing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.

Benign unilocular lytic areas in the proximal end of a long bone with well defined and narrow endosteal margins. The cysts contain fluid and the cyst walls may contain some giant cells. Bone cysts usually occur in males between the ages 3-15 years.

A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)

Saccular lesions lined with epithelium and contained within pathologically formed cavities in the jaw; also nonepithelial cysts (pseudocysts) as they apply to the jaw, e.g., traumatic or solitary cyst, static bone cavity, and aneurysmal bone cyst. True jaw cysts are classified as odontogenic or nonodontogenic.

Perineurial cysts commonly found in the SACRAL REGION. They arise from the PERINEURIUM membrane within the SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. The distinctive feature of the cysts is the presence of spinal nerve root fibers within the cyst wall, or the cyst cavity itself.
