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 heali...
This observational study aims to identify risk factors and molecular mechanisms of impaired wound healing, to guide better foot care in the diabetic population.
This research is being done to increase knowledge about wound healing and different factors that may affect healing in burn patients.
An observational study to gather information about people who may have certain abnormalities in skin microcirculation and muscle metabolism and to determine whether these abnormalities aff...
This pilot study is designed to assess the impact of ischemia/ diminished wound vascularization and stress on wound healing by comparing patterns of gene expression in specific cell types ...
The cellular and molecular mechanisms for aged-associated delay of cutaneous wound healing are still not well understood. Our previous results show that miR-21 plays key roles during skin wound healin...
IGF-I is a growth factor, which is expressed in virtually all tissues. The circulating IGF-I is however derived mainly from the liver. IGF-I promotes wound healing and its levels are decreased in woun...
The appropriate choice of postoperative dressing supports effective wound healing by providing a moist wound environment and reducing the risk of surgical site infection and blistering. Wound manageme...
When living tissues are injured, they undergo a sequential process of homeostasis, inflammation, proliferation and maturation, which is called wound healing. The working mechanism of wound healing has...
Understanding and managing patients' expectations can help improve their adherence to treatment for chronic wounds; however, little is known concerning about their expectations regarding healing time....
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
Restoration of integrity to traumatized tissue.
The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.
Spindle-shaped cells with characteristic CONTRACTILE PROTEINS and structures that contribute to the WOUND HEALING process. They occur in GRANULATION TISSUE and also in pathological processes such as FIBROSIS.
