  The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of acupuncture on wound healing after soft tissue or orthopaedic surgery in dogs. 29 dogs were submitted to soft tissue and/or orthopaedic surgeries. Five dogs had two surgical wounds each, so there were totally 34 wounds in the study. All owners received instructions for post operative care as well as antibiotic and pain treatment. Design: The efficacy of EVA water-soluble extract on wound healing in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats was EVAluated using a full-thickness cutaneous wound model. Animals were randomly selected to receive topical application of either control or EVA gel. Daily photographs of the wounds served to measure the rate of wound closure.

Acute gout arthritis is one of the most painful inflammatory conditions. Treatments for gout pain are limited to colchicine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and corticosteroids, which oftentimes result in severe adverse effects. Electroacupuncture (EA) has been proved to be effective in relieving many inflammatory pain conditions with few side effects.   Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate, from the histological point of view, the effect of diode laser irradiation on skin wound healing in Sprague-Dawley ound Data: Various biological effects have been described in different studies after low-level laser therapy (LLLT).Methods: Two parallel fullthickness skin incisions were performed on the back of each rat (n = .

Following a skin injury, the damaged tissue is repaired through the coordinated biological actions that constitute the cutaneous healing response. In mammals, repaired skin is not identical to intact uninjured skin, however, and this disparity may be caused by differences in the mechanisms that regulate postnatal cutaneous wound repair compared to embryonic skin development. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate, by light microcopy, the differences in healing process of cutaneous wounds on nourished or undernourished rats following illumination by polarized light (λ– nm) with 20 or 40 J/cm 2. Background Data: There are some reports in the literature on different effects of polarized light on wound healing.. Amongst the factors that interfere with.

The effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on the healing of full thickness skin incision wounds were exarnined in the rat. Epidennal wound healing was measured using a non-invasive quantitative method based on the increasing electrical resistance of healing skin.

Dermal heaiing was assessed by measuring the wound breaking strength. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of bipolar electroacupuncture (EA) on a soft tissue defect in rabbits. Ten clinically healthy New Zealand white rabbits were divided into two groups: the control group (Group C, n = 5) and the experimental (EA) group (Group T, n = 5).During neuroleptanalgesia, defects of soft tissue (skin and muscle) were made at the dorsum site on the Cited by: 4.

Previous studies conducted on the anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects of Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile) extract led us to study the effect of topical chamomile extract on burn wound healing in albino rats. Thirty male albino rats (– g) were randomly divided into three groups, as control, vehicle, and treatment.

Nanofibrous scaffolds that offer proper microenvironmental cues to promote the healing process are highly desirable for patients with chronic wounds. Although studies have shown that fiber organization regulates cell behaviors in vitro, little is known about its effects on the wound healing process in vivo.

Several plants are used traditionally in treatment of many skin wounds and burnings in various points of the world ; among them one can refer to plants of jujube, mountain germander, olibanum, and also portulaca, whose effect has been proved during trend of healing of burning wounds in rats [40–42].

In this study, we investigated whether acupuncture treatment around the edges of wound improved wound healing and promoted the proliferation of resident cells in wounded area of rats.

Also, we studied the effects of acupuncture on angiogenesis and induction of extracelluar matrix remodeling and change of pro-inflammatory cytokines in wound area.

Introduction. Cutaneous wounds, known as ulcers, are an extremely common clinical problem and often arise following acute or chronic mechanical causes, physical or chemical burns, frostbite, infections, and disorders, including rheumatism, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, lipodermatosclerosis and malignant tumors (1,2).Furthermore, cutaneous wound healing may be significantly delayed due.

In a study assessing the effects of systemic synthetic superoxide dismutase (SOD)/catalase analogs in irradiated rat skin, the authors observed improved wound healing, diminished indicators of oxidative stress, and downregulation of genes involved in reducing ROS.

62 A clinical trial with liposomal Cu/Zn SOD showed reduction in long-standing. Green tea (Camellia sinensis) has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and may enhance wound healing present study, therefore, was aimed to examine the effect of green tea ethanolic extract on wound healing process.

For this experimental study, 36 healthy male Wistar rats were randomly designated to three groups of A, B, and C which, respectively treated with. S. Ud-Din, A.

Cutaneous wound repair consists of multiple integrated networks of cell‐matrix‐cytokine interactions. It is generally believed that a better understanding of these networks will lead to improved care of cutaneous wounds, whether freshly made by the surgeon's scalpel or previously existing and not healing secondary to underlying abnormalities.

Some studies have also described its healing effects in cutaneous wounds in dogs [2,18,27], goats, horses [7,23], and other species [10,19].

In both humans and animals, PRP is commonly processed for application to cutaneous wounds by mixing with calcium chloride and thrombin to form a platelet gel, which can be applied like an ointment [ 5.

It is an effective treatment choice because it potentiates the trophic regenerative, anti inflammatory, and painkiller effects.
