Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Selecting an appropriate treatment for a given case of skin wound is crucial for inducing optimal healing. We used an animal model consisting of normal rabbit ears in order to assess the efficacy of treatments for skin wounds with/without a wet dressing, anti-microbial reagent, or topical wound-stimulatory reagents. The degree of healing in each group was evaluated and compared using four histological parameters: (i) degree of reepithelialisation, (ii) amount of granulation tissue formation and (iii) the number of capillary lumens and (iv) fibroblasts in the granulation tissue. Treatment using wet dressings presented an increase in capillary number compared to the open dry wound. Although the retention of PI in wound tissue after application significantly inhibited reepithelialisation (P < 0·05), rinsing povidone-iodine (PI) off with saline after application was comparable in effect to using only a wet dressing. The three topical reagents, namely, basic fibroblast growth factor, prostaglandin E1 and dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate, significantly improved reepithelialisation (P < 0·05). In conclusion, wounds should be kept hydrated by applying topical reagents. If there are any signs of bacterial infection, PI can be applied if rinsed later with saline in order to minimise its cytotoxic effects.
