Effect of Transparent, Self-drying Silicone Gel on the Treatment of Hypertrophic Abdominal Scars

2014-08-27 03:15:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Keloids and hypertrophic scars are a common subject of dermatologic consultations. Therapeutic management of such conditions remains challenging because of their high rate of recurrence and lack of curative treatment.

Description

Silicone gel Sheeting (SGS) is one treatment modality that has proven effective for treatment of hypertrophic scar. One disadvantage of SGS is its application technique. To be effective, SGS must be applied on the scar for at least 12 hours daily. Topical silicone gel is a novel therapy that has shown promising result on scar prevention. However, the efficacy and safety of topical silicone gel for treatment of hypertrophic scar has not been confirmed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Synthetic organosiloxane gels that are formed from synthetic polymers of silicone oxide with organic sidechains (polydimethylsiloxane) by lengthening the polymer chains. Unlike silicone elastomers, they are not treated with amorphous silica. They are used as fillers in breast implants.

Polymers of silicone that are formed by crosslinking and treatment with amorphous silica to increase strength. They have properties similar to vulcanized natural rubber, in that they stretch under tension, retract rapidly, and fully recover to their original dimensions upon release. They are used in the encapsulation of surgical membranes and implants.

Implants used to reconstruct and/or cosmetically enhance the female breast. They have an outer shell or envelope of silicone elastomer and are filled with either saline or silicone gel. The outer shell may be either smooth or textured.

Fluorides, usually in pastes or gels, used for topical application to reduce the incidence of DENTAL CARIES.

Sodium or potassium salts of long chain fatty acids. These detergent substances are obtained by boiling natural oils or fats with caustic alkali. Sodium soaps are harder and are used as topical anti-infectives and vehicles in pills and liniments; potassium soaps are soft, used as vehicles for ointments and also as topical antimicrobials.
