Hyaluronic Acid and Re-epithelialization

Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan, HA) is a large glycosaminoglycan and an essential extracellular component of skin It is active throughout the entire process of wound healing being involved in proliferation, migration, and tissue remodelling. Erika Nyman published on 2019 this interesting study in which he investigated the influence of exogenous HA on re-epithelialization, erythema, and protein expression. Nyman and Coll concluded that exogenous intradermal HA accelerates re-epithelialization and alters protein expression in human in vivo deep dermal skin wounds.

PRP Application prior to Resurfacing with Split Thickness Skin Graft Vs Conventional Mechanical Fixation Using Sutures and Staples

A split-thickness skin graft is generally done for soft skin coverage. The healing process is undertaken through three stages anchorage, inosculation and maturation. Subha Dhua and colleagues conducted this Randomized control study on 40 patients for 24 months from October 2015 to September 2017. The application of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the split-thickness skin graft sites is considered and theorized to provide immediate skin graft anchorage.

Biobrane dressing for pediatric burns in Singapore. A retrospective review

Cong Fan and colleagues conducted a retrospective review about pediatric burns patients admitted to the pediatric burns unit from January 2014 to April 2015 at Singapore General Hospital, Singapore. This study aimed to compare the results of Biobrane dressing with conventional silver foam dressing. In the Biobrane group, the length of hospital stay was significantly shorter and the infection rate was significantly lower
