Featured article: Leucocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin as a rescue therapy for small-to-medium-sized complex wounds of the lower extremities
Tendon and/or bone exposure commonly occurs in wounds of lower extremities, which could be challenging to form healthy granulation tissue by simple dressings in such exposed tissues while maintaining the viability of vulnerable tissue. Leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) could represent a good alternative for small-to-medium-sized complex wounds because it can be prepared in a user-friendly manner with autologous, inexpensive, effective, and protective dressing materials and does not require any hospitalization.
Keloids are the result of abnormal wound healing and often are subject to infections and recurrent inflammation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 1470 nm fiber laser for the treatment of inflamed or infected keloids, which may represent an alternative treatment for this pathological condition.
