Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article introduces and discusses several biophysical and cellular modalities that are being tested or used in clinical practice to optimize wound bed preparation, effect soft tissue coverage, and improve the quality of the inevitable and resultant scar. Among these promising technologies is the use of electrical stimulation to mimic a physiologic current of injury in an effort to accelerate re-epithelialization and the wound healing process. Over the past several years an on-site individualized regenerative medicine kit has become commercially available (ReCell, Avita Medical), utilizing well-established laboratory techniques of cell separation without the need for cell cultivation in an effort to expand and promote wound coverage and end result.
