An elevated scar, resembling a KELOID, but which does not spread into surrounding tissues. It is formed by enlargement and overgrowth of cicatricial tissue and regresses spontaneously.
The fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue during the process of WOUND HEALING.
A sharply elevated, irregularly shaped, progressively enlarging scar resulting from formation of excessive amounts of collagen in the dermis during connective tissue repair. It is differentiated from a hypertrophic scar (CICATRIX, HYPERTROPHIC) in that the former does not spread to surrounding tissues.
Neoplasm Regression, Spontaneous
A type of acneiform disorder in which secondary pyogenic infection in and around pilosebaceous structures ends in keloidal scarring. It manifests as persistent folliculitis of the back of the neck associated with occlusion of the follicular orifices. It is most often encountered in black or Asian men.

Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes. (UMDNS, 2005)
Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.
A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)
An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
Trigger Finger Disorder
A painful disability in the hand affecting the finger or thumb. It is caused by mechanical impingement of the digital flexor tendons as they pass through a narrowed retinacular pulley at the level of the metacarpal head. Thickening of the sheath and fibrocartilaginous metaplasia can occur, and nodules can form. (From Green's Operative Hand Surgery, 5th ed, p2137-58).
Acquired and inherited conditions that feature DYSTONIA as a primary manifestation of disease. These disorders are generally divided into generalized dystonias (e.g., dystonia musculorum deformans) and focal dystonias (e.g., writer's cramp). They are also classified by patterns of inheritance and by age of onset.

Dermatopontin expression is decreased in hypertrophic scar and systemic sclerosis skin fibroblasts and is regulated by transforming growth factor-beta1, interleukin-4, and matrix collagen. (1/85)Dermatopontin is a recently discovered extracellular matrix protein with proteoglycan and cell-binding properties and is assumed to play important roles in cell-matrix interactions and matrix assembly. In this study we examined the expression of dermatopontin mRNA and protein in skin fibroblast cultures from patients with hypertrophic scar and patients with systemic sclerosis. Dermatopontin mRNA and protein levels were reduced in fibroblast cultures from hypertrophic scar lesional skin compared with fibroblasts from normal skin of the same hypertrophic scar patient. Fibroblast cultures from systemic sclerosis patient involved skin also showed significantly reduced expression of dermatopontin compared with normal skin fibroblasts from healthy individuals. We also investigated the effects of cytokines and matrix collagen on dermatopontin expression in normal cultured fibroblasts. Transforming growth factor-beta1 increased dermatopontin mRNA and protein levels, while interleukin-4 reduced dermatopontin expression. Substrate coated with type I collagen reduced dermatopontin mRNA levels, the reduction being more prominent in three-dimensional collagen matrices. Our results suggest that the decreased expression of dermatopontin is associated with the pathogenesis of fibrosis in hypertrophic scar and systemic sclerosis, and that the effect of the cytokines and matrix collagen on dermatopontin may have important implications for skin fibrosis.

Expression and role of IL-15 in post-burn hypertrophic scars. (2/85)Hypertrophic scarring is a skin disorder that occurs after wounding and thermal injury. There is accumulating evidence that immunologic processes such as infiltration of activated T lymphocytes and altered cytokine production may play a role in the formation of hypertrophic scars. Interleukin-15, a cytokine identified as a T cell growth factor, also acts as a chemoattractant for T cells and has pro-inflammatory properties. We investigated the expression and the role of this cytokine in hypertrophic scarring. IL-15 expression was compared in skin biopsies of hypertrophic scars (HS) both in active (AHS) and in remission (RHS) phases, in normotrophic scars (NTS) and in normal skin using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and immunohistochemistry. IL-15 expression in HS was significantly higher than in NTS or normal skin. Furthermore, AHS expressed higher levels of IL-15 than RHS. Immunohistologic analysis of AHS samples showed strong IL-15 immunoreactivity in keratinocytes and Langerhans cells in the epidermis and in macrophages, fibroblasts, and dermal dendritic cells in the dermis. High levels of IL-15 expression in AHS correlated with abundant infiltration of activated CD3+ cells. Ex vivo experiments indicate that IL-15 can sustain the proliferative response of T cells derived from AHS but not from RHS and NTS. In addition, IL-15 prevents both cytokine deprivation and activation-induced apoptosis of T cells derived from AHS. Taken together, these results suggest that IL-15 can be involved in the recruitment, proliferation, and apoptosis inhibition of T cells in AHS. The findings that the evolution from an AHS to a RHS is associated with a decrease in IL15 expression, and with a loss of IL-15 responsiveness in ex vivo-cultured T cells, indicate that this cytokine plays an important role in the biology of pathologic scar formation.

Mechanical forces induce scar remodeling. Study in non-pressure-treated versus pressure-treated hypertrophic scars. (3/85)Reparative process of second and third degree burns usually results in hypertrophic scar formation that can be treated by pressure. Although this method is efficient, its mechanisms of action are not known. In this work, we have studied the histological organization of hypertrophic scars submitted to pressure. Skin biopsies were performed 2 to 7 months after the onset of treatment in two adjacent regions of the scar, non-pressure- or pressure-treated and analyzed by immunohistochemistry and transmission electron microscopy for extracellular matrix organization and cellular morphology. In non-pressure-treated regions, fibrillin deposits did not present the classical candelabra-like pattern under epidermis and were reduced in dermis; in pressure-treated regions the amount was increased compared to non-pressure-treated regions but the organization was still disturbed. In non-pressure-treated regions, elastin was present in patch deposits; in pressure-treated regions elastin formed fibers, smaller than in normal dermis. Tenascin was present in the whole dermis in non-pressure-treated regions, whereas in pressure-treated regions it was observed only under epidermis and around vessels, as in normal skin. alpha-Smooth muscle actin-expressing myofibroblasts were absent in normal skin, present in large amounts in non-pressure-treated regions, and almost absent in pressure-treated regions. The disturbed ultrastructural organization of dermal-epidermal junction observed in non-pressure-treated regions disappeared after pressure therapy; typical features of apoptosis in fibroblastic cells and morphological aspects of collagen degradation were observed in pressure-treated regions. Our results show that, in hypertrophic scars, pressure therapy restores in part the extracellular matrix organization observed in normal scar and induces the disappearance of alpha-smooth muscle actin-expressing myofibroblasts, probably by apoptosis. We suggest that the pressure acts by accelerating the remission phase of the postburn reparative process. (+info)
Severe obstructive sleep apnoea secondary to pressure garments used in the treatment of hypertrophic burn scars. (4/85)Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) secondary to pressure garments used to treat hypertrophic scarring of burns has never been reported. The present study describes two children who presented with OSA following introduction of such garments for management of hypertrophic scars following severe facial and upper body burns. Complex sleep polysomnography confirmed severe OSA with desaturations sufficient to result in physiological dysfunction that significantly improved on removal of the garments. As there is little evidence to suggest that the use of such garments alters the end result, the potentially serious side effect of obstructive sleep apnoea should be considered before their use is advised.

Expression of oncoproteins c-fos and c-jun in hypertrophic scars and chronic dermal ulcers and their regulation of basic fibroblast growth factor. (5/85)OBJECTIVE: To explore the characteristics of oncoprotein expression of c-fos and c-jun in hypertrophic scars and chronic dermal ulcers and their regulation of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF). METHODS: Tissues of hypertrophic scars (n = 8), chronic dermal ulcers (n = 8) and normal skin (n = 5) were taken from 21 patients with burns and chronic dermal ulcers in operation. The ABC immunohistochemical method was used to characterize the gene product expression of c-fos, c-jun and bFGF in the above tissues. RESULTS: In normal skin, both c-fos and c-jun protein expression and bFGF protein expression were observed. The signals of both oncoproteins were localized mainly in subcutaneous fibroblasts, but, positive expression of the bFGF protein was mainly in keratinocytes. In hypertrophic scars, positive expression of both oncoproteins could be found mainly in fibroblasts, but bFGF was mainly in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. In chronic dermal ulcers, endothelial cells, some of inflammatory cells and fibroblasts were positive for both of oncoproteins, but the expression of bFGF was only seen in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that the interaction between both oncoproteins and bFGF exists, and the regulating action between protooncogenes and bFGF is a major course in wound healing. The different expressions of c-fos and c-jun gene products play an important role in regulate bFGF action, thus affecting wound healing. (+info)
Alterations in fibroblast alpha1beta1 integrin collagen receptor expression in keloids and hypertrophic scars. (6/85)Keloids and hypertrophic scars are significant symptomatic clinical problems characterized by excess collagen. Although extensive research has focused on fibroblasts and collagen turnover in these aberrant scars, little work has been done on the expression of integrins (cell membrane structures that link cells to extracellular matrix) within these lesions. Integrin-mediated regulation of collagen synthesis has previously been observed in explanted fibroblasts from normal and fibrotic dermis, and integrin alpha1 knockout mice maintain increased collagen synthesis consistent with a role for alpha1beta1 in providing negative feedback on collagen synthesis. These findings suggested the need to evaluate integrin roles in keloids and hypertrophic scars. In this study we examined integrin expression in keloids (n = 11), hypertrophic scars (n = 5), radiation ulcers (n = 2), and normal skin specimens (n = 8). We used a novel approach to analysis by isolating dermal fibroblasts directly from tissue (without explant culture) and determining surface integrin expression by flow cytometry. We found that keloids and hypertrophic scars have marked alterations in fibroblast integrin expression and contain several distinct populations of fibroblasts. One of these populations expresses high levels of alpha1 integrin, and the proportion of these cells is higher in keloids (63% +/- 3.6% SEM) and hypertrophic scars (45% +/- 2.7% SEM) than in normal skin tissues (28% +/- 4.7% SEM). The different populations of fibroblasts defined by integrin expression merge, however, when the cells are serially cultured, suggesting that there may be aspects of the dermal microenvironment that maintain the integrin phenotypic heterogeneity in dermal fibroblasts.

Expression of epidermal growth factor receptor and related phosphorylation proteins in hypertrophic scars and normal skin. (7/85)OBJECTIVE: To study the potential signal pathway involved in pathogenesis of hypertrophic scar formation. METHODS: The samples of scar were obtained from patients with burn wound scars 6 - 28 months post-burn, while the samples of normal control skin came from the donor site of the same patients. Immunohistochemistry and light microscopy techniques were used to identify the expression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and phosphotyrosine proteins (p-Tyr), as well as the phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (Stat3) in both hypertrophic scars (n = 6) and normal skin (n = 6). RESULTS: Significant differences were observed in the p-Tyr and EGFR positive expression keratinocytes both in hypertrophic scars and normal skin. The expression of p-Tyr, EGFR and Stat3 protein was greater in hypertrophic scars than in normal skin. However, there was no significant difference in p-Stat3 expression between scar tissues and normal skin. CONCLUSION: Different tyrosine kinase activity occurs in hypertrophic scars and normal cutaneous tissues. Initially, varied expression of EGFR is due to different ligand stimulations. However, phosphotyrosine protein and Stat3 are subsequently activated through phosphorylation. In scar tissues, although EGFR has an intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity when activated by EGFR correlated ligand, phosphorylation of Stat3 showed no significant changes. Therefore, cellular signal pathways are induced by EGFR, which might play a role in hypertrophic scar pathogenesis. (+info)
Prevention and treatment of excessive dermal scarring. (8/85)Today, wound management to avoid excessive scar formation is increasingly important, especially in populations with Fitzpatrick 3 or higher skin pigmentation. Medical science and industrial development are devoting more effort toward understanding and offering better therapy to control scars. However, advances in scar management have been hampered by the confusing or ambiguous terminology. There is no consensus on what amount of post-traumatic skin scar formation is "normal" and what should be considered "hypertrophic". In the World Health Organization's ICD-9, there is no diagnostic code for hypertrophic scar--only keloid is listed. Yet, the medical and scientific literature distinguishes them as different conditions. Our experience suggests that the diagnosis of keloid disease is greatly over-rendered. For black patients, an elevated scar seems, by default, diagnosed as keloid by most. This confusion results in inappropriate management of scar formation, and occasionally contributes to decision making related to elective or cosmetic surgery. Given that patients are expecting better outcomes from wound care today than in the past, this review article attempts to capture the essential biological factors related to wound scar production and discusses treatment options and indications used by the authors.

Aging | Apigenin inhibits growth and migration of fibroblasts by suppressing FAK signaling
The naturally occurring compound apigenin has many biological effects, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidative and anticancer effects. Although hypertrophic scar formation is a common surgical complication, there is still no good treatment for it. In the present study, we examined the effect of apigenin on hypertrophic scar. After isolating fibroblasts from human hypertrophic scars, we assess the effects of apigenin on fibroblast cell survival, apoptosis and migration. The results showed that apigenin dose-dependently inhibited the growth and migration of hypertrophic scar fibroblasts. By inhibiting FAK kinase activity and FAK phosphorylation, apigenin also inhibited activation of the FAK signaling pathway. Apigenin thus appears to inhibit the growth and migration of hypertrophic scar fibroblasts by inhibiting FAK signaling. This suggests apigenin could potentially provide a new option for the treatment of hypertrophic scars.

The female red Duroc pig has been found to be a promising model of hypertrophic scarring. The female Yorkshire pig has been demonstrated to heal in a very different manner, more resembling human normotrophic scarring. Given these observations, we studied microvessel density, an important aspect of wound healing, in human hypertrophic scars and the scars of the female Duroc and Yorkshire pigs. We studied microvessel density in uninjured skin; hypertrophic scars at 6 months or less, 7 to 12, and longer than 12 months; female Duroc tissues at 3 weeks and 3 and 5 months; and similar Yorkshire tissue, including uninjured skin and shallow and deep wounds. Antifactor VIII-related antigen was used to mark the endothelial cells. Computed assessment of microvessel density was used to quantify the microvasculature. In human hypertrophic scars, the microvessels were increased dramatically, and microvessel density and area were significantly elevated. We found similar results in the Duroc tissues at 5 months ...

Previous studies have demonstrated that interferons suppress collagen production by means of normal, keloid, and hypertrophic scar‐derived fibroblasts. The fibroblast‐populated collagen lattice is an in vitro model used to study fibroblast function. We used fibroblast‐populated collagen lattices to evaluate the effect of interferon on fibroblasts harvested from normal human skin, human keloid, and hypertrophic scar tissues. Human recombinant interferon alfa‐2b (1000 IU/ml) was added to the culture media. The collagen gel, prepared from rat tail tendon bundles, was overlaid with 5 × 104 fibroblast cells. Keloid fibroblast‐populated collagen ...

Hypertrophic scar (HS) formation is associated with the fibrosis of fibrocytes caused by excessive extracellular matrix (ECM) synthesis and deposition, the initial event of HS formation. Our high throughput screen of miRNA expression profiles identified hsa-miR31-5p, whose transcription level was most differentially in normal skin fibroblasts (NS) and HS among other miRNAs. The level of hsa-miR31-5p in HS was significantly higher than in NS. In-vitro functional experiments showed hsa-miR31-5p knockdown remarkably suppressed the proliferation of hypertrophic scar fibroblasts (HSFBs) under hypoxia, promoted cell invasion, and inhibited the expression of Collagen I and III and Fibronectin (FN), suggesting that hsa-miR31-5p knockdown effectively reduces HS formation caused by excessive ECM synthesis and deposition in HSFBs under hypoxia ...

Exogenous peripheral blood mononuclear cells affect the healing process of deep‑degree burns
Hypertrophic scar formation and contracture following deep-degree burn-induced extensive skin defects can result in serious disability. Therefore, reducing scar formation is considered a significant issue in burn injury management (2,20,21). Scarless healing, the ideal subsequent to skin injury, exists in human fetuses up to 24 weeks of pregnancy (12,22-24). The amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus is warm, sterile, and rich in nutrients, growth factors and extracellular matrix (ECM) elements, including hyaluronic acid and fibronectin, which are all important for wound healing (12,25). However, in a previous study, when wounded skin from adult goats was transplanted into goat fetuses, and supplied with goat fetal blood, scar formation still occurred (26). Conversely, scarless healing has been observed in fetal skin outside the womb (19). Therefore, it may be suggested that scarless healing of fetal skin depends on the characteristics of the skin itself, and is not associated with the external ...

Lasers deemed highly effective treatment for excessive scars
Hypertrophic scars are limited to the initially injured area. Keloids-which are more common in dark-skinned individuals-can spread beyond the area of the initial wound. Most of the studies evaluated the effects of laser therapy for hypertrophic scarring; just three reports focused exclusively on keloids.. Data from more than 900 patients showed high success rates with laser treatment: about 70 percent for both hypertrophic scarring and keloids. Based on studies targeting scars that were less than one month old, laser therapy had a similar success rate in prevention of excessive scarring.. The responses appeared best with two specific lasers: the 585/595 nm pulsed-dye laser (PDL) and the 532 nm laser. (The figures in nanometers [nm] indicate the wavelength of the laser light used.) About two-thirds of the studies reviewed examined the 585/595 nm PDL; just three studies evaluated the 532 nm laser.. ...

Time might heal all wounds, but not all scars - Bluffton Sun
Scars are the bodys natural process to heal those nips and tears to our skin that we all experience throughout life. Any burn, injury, surgery or other trauma to our skin can cause the formation of scar tissue.. A scar isnt such a bad thing if its small or in a location thats easy to conceal, but you might want to treat those scars instead of hiding them under clothing. And while scars never completely go away, there are ways to minimize them.. Q: How do scars form?. A: Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar.. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Scars form after a wound is completely healed.. Q: Are there different types of scars?. A: Yes. Most scars are flat and pale. However, in cases when the body produces too much collagen, scars can be raised. Raised scars are called hypertrophic scars or ...

Recovery Works: Modified Protein May Lead to First Cure for Cirrhosis
The study expands on work reported in 2001 in the journal Molecular Cell announcing that a team led by Buck had found that a small piece of an important regulatory protein called C/EBP beta was responsible for fibrous tissue growth, or excessive scar tissue following injury or illness. When normal scarring goes awry, excessive build-up of fibrous tissue can produce disfiguring scars or clog vital internal organs and lead to serious complications. Buck and colleagues developed a mutated protein that stopped this excessive fibrous tissue growth ...
It is unclear what causes IPF, but it is thought to be a response to damage to the lining of the airways (epithelium) following an unidentified injury. This results in the. formation of excessive scar tissue which disrupts the delicate architecture of the lung and ultimately death follows from respiratory failure. We have shown from research previously sponsored by The Rosetrees Trust that a certain type of white blood cell which is specialised in fighting infections called neutrophils may play a role in PF. We have found that neutrophils are increased in the blood and lungs of patients with PF and the more neutrophils you have, the worse the individuals outcome. In addition, it is recognised that you are more likely to develop IPF if you have a commonly occurring genetic mutation that causes increased mucus production by the lung epithelium, and in particular a protein called Mucin or MUC5B that gives sputum its stringy quality. We propose that the overproduction of MUC5B may stress the ...
Almost 6 million people in the United States have heart failure and the primary underlying factor is cardiac fibrosis. Cardiac fibrosis causes about 50% of deaths in developed world. The cardiac fibroproliferative diseases are characterized by abnormal proliferation and accumulation of cardiac fibroblasts and excessive deposition of extracellular matrix. While the treatment provided sufficient blood flow to the heart, yet it was not effective in the improvement of fibrosis. Clinical and preclinical studies have been targeting various systems such as the renin-angiotensin system, transforming growth factor-beta, and endothelin, which are currently in different stages of development. Creating a suitable model system to further clarify the disease process and testing new compounds for the treatment of cardiac fibrosis has led to fabrication of an innovative human engineered heart tissue (hEHT) developed and improved for more than two decades to serve as a surrogate for human intact tissue for the ...
Scars, Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars - Aaron Stone MD - Plastic Surgery
Virtually everyone who lives long enough will have a skin scar from elective surgery or an injury. There has been a barrage of cosmetic surgery procedure modifications to decrease total incision length in the hope of creating less scarring. The healing of these disruptions in the skin surface follows a specific process. After the injury or cut there is bleeding. Once this stops an inflammatory process starts to get the cells needed for healing into the wound. New blood vessels grow into the area bringing in the energy needed to complete the healing process. You see this as a red color of the scar and the skin immediately next to the scar that blanches white with finger pressure. Within a week or two the healing is sufficiently strong that the wound should not reopen and any sutures that were placed can be removed. Even though the wound is healed it then must mature over the next 6 to 9 months depending on the type of injury, affected body part, age of individual etc. before the redness goes away ...
DiVA - Sökresultat
Dysregulated wound healing is commonly associated with excessive fibrosis. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF/CCN2) is characteristically overexpressed in fibrotic diseases and stimulated by transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) in dermal fibroblasts. Reepithelialisation and epidermal wound coverage counteract excessive scar formation. We have previously shown that interleukin-1α (IL-1α) derived from keratinocytes conteracts TGF-β-stimulated CTGF-expression. The aim of this thesis was to further explore the effects of keratinocytes and IL-1α on gene and protein expression, as well as pathways, in TGF-β stimulated fibroblasts. Fibroblasts were studied in vitro by conventional two dimensional cell culture models and in a three dimensional keratinocyte-fibroblast organotypic skin culture model.. The results showed that IL-1 suppresses basal and TGF-β-induced CTGF mRNA and protein, involving a possible TAK1 mechanism. Keratinocytes regulate the expression of fibroblast genes important for ...

Scars 101: An Interview with Dr. Megan Jack, MD Part Two | The Skincare Belle
The second type are keloid scars. Keloid scars are basically a step above hypertrophic scars. It looks almost like theres a tumor growing out of the scars that extends beyond the boundaries of the original incision or the surgical site. Keloid scars are not exclusive to but are more common in people who have darker Fitzpatrick skin types, and Asian skin also tends to have an increased risk of keloids. Latin skin will sometimes have an increased risk, and rarely we still do see it in Caucasian or lighter skinned people as well. The main point is that those darker pigmented patients will have a higher risk for naturally forming keloids. They are more significant and they are much more difficult to treat and so it is important to prevent them. That means that if somebody has a history of keloid scars or a family history of keloid scars you really want to try and avoid any injury to the skin itself. You want to avoid piercings, tattoos, and basically try to avoid any sort of trauma to the skin. In ...
Frontiers | The Superficial Dermis May Initiate Keloid Formation: Histological Analysis of the Keloid Dermis at Different...
Several studies have reported on certain aspects of the characteristics of different sites within a keloid lesion, but detailed studies on the keloid dermis at different depths within a keloid lesion are scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate the histology of the keloid dermis at different depths. This study included 19 keloid tissue samples that were collected from 19 patients and 19 normal skin samples, which were harvested from subjects without keloids or hypertrophic scar. Samples were studied by light microscopy using routine hematoxylin and eosin histochemical staining, and immunohistochemistry to detect CD20-positive B-lymphocytes and CD3-positive T-lymphocytes. Sirius Red histochemical staining was used to determine the type of collagen in keloid tissue and normal skin samples. The migratory properties of fibroblasts within the keloid dermis at different depths was compared, using an in vitro migration assay. The findings of this study showed that although the papillary and reticular
Scars-A Matter Of Cosmetic And Beauty Concern! - Skin Care Beauty Zone
First of all know the exact cause of them and then find a probable solution of its kind. As you all know a scar is an overgrowth of fibrous tissue and blood vessels.. This is formed as a result of any injury, a cut or a burn. Many types of scars are seen in individuals.. Scars caused due to burns are usually very wide as they result in loss of a large area of skin. The best method of treating these is the scar removal surgery using a skin flap, or graph and tissue expansion.. Scars resulting from cuts, injuries or any kind of incisions are called Keloids. These are red or purple lesions. These are very troublesome and very difficult to treat and have a tendency to reappear even after removal treatment.. The most common scars are those from acne which seem to be double punishment, mostly because all the while you had to work to fight against acne and then again now these stubborn scars.. The other types of scars are Hypertrophic scars which are similar to keloids. To get rid of them simple ...
How Scars Form
Hypertrophic and Keloid are the most common forms of scars. These types of scars have a raised appearance that extends over a formerly injured area. Keloid Scars differ from other hypertrophic scars in that they can continue to grow and become a type of benign tumor. What exactly causes this overproduction of collagen is still up for debate. What is known is that a decrease in cross-linked (basket weave) collagen and an increase in soluble collagen is present in this type of scarring. It is also known that genetic factors play a role in who is more likely to get these types of scars.. Atrophic scars, on the other hand, are scars that have a sunken appearance. They are most commonly the result of acne, chicken pocks, or infections of the skin. They can also be caused by muscle and fat tissue below the scar area being destroyed, possibly during an inflammation process resulting from an injury, which results in the loss of the support structure under the scar, hence the sunken appearance.. Finally, ...

Background: Skin tape and silicone gel are two common over-the-counter preparations used to enhance the cosmesis of keloids and hypertrophic scars of posttrauma wounds. This animal study was performed to determine the clinical efficacy of skin tape versus silicone gel in subjects with scars. Materials and Methods: Three New Zealand rabbits that received total 12 incision wounds which two incision wounds on one ear side and subsequent primary suturing were studied. Stitches were removed after 1 week. Silicone gel was applied right upper side of the rabbits ear directly on surgical incision wounds, and skin tapes were also applied left upper side of the rabbits ear directly on another surgical incision wounds after 1 week of surgery. The lower incisions in both ears were covered with sterilized gauze and served as controls. We compared two experimental groups at binaural with using Vancouver Scar Scale, Manchester Scar Scale, and The Stony Brook Scar Evaluation Scale. These are widely used in ...

Blog del Dr. Víctor Castañeda: Keloids: What works against bulging scars?
The final fate of a scar begins its story directly after the injury: inflammatory processes primarily take off in order to remove necrotic cells and, where needed, also to remove germs. In the granulation phase, fibroblasts and keratinocytes are responsible for new tissue at the wound edge and extracellular matrix components are formed. In addition, new blood vessels grow. Here matrix metalloproteases and messengers play an important role. With the epithelialisation process, the wound closes on the outside, while down inside the business goes on, that is to say remodeling: using Transforming Growth Factor β1 (TGF-β1), fibroblasts convert to myofibroblasts. This creature should not be allowed to get off the leash, otherwise hypertrophic scars arise. The swelling at this point is limited to the area on the original wound. Connective tissue tumours, that is keloids, travel far beyond these boundaries. Genetic influences and environmental factors come into question as triggers, scientists have not ...

How castor oil healed my scar (with before and after photos!) - skinVERSE
Hi Tori. Thanks so much for taking the time to come back with an update. Im glad youre seeing some progress and the pain has gone away. Your hypertrophic scar actually sounds a little like the one I have on my elbow. It was red and vascularized before, but now its more like normal skin in its coloring. Lugols is a pretty strong solution and can lead to burning, and an effect like one would get from a chemical skin peel. If Lugols is problematic but you still want to try and get iodine in it, you may want to consider iodine tincture instead. As long as the skin hasnt been recently injured or abraded, this shouldnt burn the way Lugols can. The most youd get by overdoing iodine tincture is skin flaking from dryness and itchiness from the dry skin (the dryness is from the alcohol in the tincture), in which case all youd need to do is take a break for several days. It sounds like the redness and inflammation you got from using Lugols should be temporary and will go away as the area ...

Methods - The I-Scan® device was designed to measure pressure at the body/environment interface and allows clinicians to deal with pressure-related problems for at-risk patients. It has been ...
Scar Revision - Dr Ringelman
Keloids are thick, puckered, itchy clusters of scar tissue that grow beyond the edges of the wound or incision. They are often red or darker in color than the surrounding skin. Keloids occur when the body continues to produce the tough, fibrous protein known as collagen after a wound has healed.. Keloids can appear anywhere on the body, but theyre most common over the breastbone, on the earlobes, and on the shoulders. They occur more often in dark-skinned people than in those who are fair. The tendency to develop keloids lessens with age.. Keloids are often treated by injecting a steroid medication directly into the scar tissue to reduce redness, itching, and burning. In some cases, this will also shrink the scar.. If steroid treatment is inadequate, the scar tissue can be cut out and the wound closed with one or more layers of stitches. This is generally an outpatient procedure, performed under local anesthesia. You should be back at work in a day or two, and the stitches will be removed in a ...
Keloids | abilenederm
Keloids are an overgrowth of connective tissue that forms in response to injury such as surgery, piercing, tattoos, certain skin conditions and/or other trauma. Keloids may develop quickly or may take years to develop.. Although keloids are non-cancerous and generally harmless, they can be unsightly and sometimes associated with pain, itching or irritation. Some keloids feel soft and rubbery, while others are firm and hard. Many start as red, but often the color decreases over time and they become firm pink or skin colored lesions.. Keloids tend to develop in certain areas of the body, including:. ...
Keloid Scar - RAFT
RAFT is working on the development of a dermal scaffold intended for use after surgical excision of a keloid. A dermal scaffold is a type of treatment used by surgeons, which acts as a template to guide the growth of new skin at a wound site and avoid scarring. However, RAFTs scaffold for keloid treatment will be specifically designed to inhibit the recurrence of keloid scarring.. This novel treatment could allow surgical intervention while keloids are smaller and reduce the amount of time that patients would be burdened with the appearance and symptoms of a keloid. This has the potential to transform the lives of keloid sufferers, and deliver cost savings to the NHS by decreasing the time spent on follow up and aftercare. ...

Whiplash Injuries - Rags and Mags
The most common injury from an auto accident is whiplash injury. Since there is no visible injury and the initial pain is not harsh. So, people do not seek professional help. This is a big fault.. Initial medical treatment for the distinctive auto injury usually contains painkillers and a neck brace. This approach does little to repair the underlying injury. Physical therapy is the chief method for repair and strengthening of damaged tissue and for avoiding excessive scar growth. It is highly suggested to begin physical therapy within one week following an auto accident. Treatment will be initiated to control pain and diminish swelling.

Keloids: Symptoms, Causes and Management
Keloids appear a few time after the original surgery or wound, hardly subside with time, produce out of the limits of the original injury, (a slight wound can create a big keloid), are independent of skin motion (such as earlobe keloids), hardly happen across joints and might develop much worse after surgery without concomitant steps to avoid reappearance.. The occurrence of keloid scarring growths in blacker skinned persons but not ever blacker skinned people gets them. In spite of that my keloid affected persons are mostly Afro-American followed by Asians and then those of non-European Hispanic ancestry. I have only had some Caucasian patients with these issues. Keloids have not been reported in albinos of any competition, suggesting a possible character of skin pigment in this kind of scarring.. There is an increased occurrence of keloid creation running in relatives so it is inherited to a few degree. Keloid scarring does not follow the similar pattern of development, steadying, and ...

RVs vs Tents - ePlaya
I guess Im in the minority here. I would never camp in an RV. Cant stand them. I find them stuffy, claustrophobic, and generally kind of lame. Even when visiting other peoples camps, if Im invited into an RV, I am hesitant. And once Im in, I cant wait to get outside again. What can I say? I just find it an unpleasant place to be. I would never consider a rental. Way too expensive, wouldnt want all the hassle of dealing with a rental company, with all the rules and legalese, and I wouldnt want to deal with the extensive post-burn cleanup under threat of a huge cleaning fee if its not done to the rental companys satisfaction. I would only consider an RV if I owned it and it was already kind of beat up. Of course, then you need a place to store it when not in use. Moreover, I would really dislike driving one of these beasts, particularly if I had to maneuver it though any sort of urban environment. The one RV benefit that I am jealous of is the extra sound insulation, which makes it ...
