中文摘要 如何改善皮膚傷口癒合以及避免在傷口癒合中留下不正常疤痕一直以來是一個重要的議題。在傷口癒合過程中,有可能不會留下疤痕;也有可能會留下疤痕。每年全球超過1億人口產生疤痕,其中有31%的疤痕源自於皮膚的創傷。在過去以來,許多專家學者致力於研究傷口癒合的過程機制以及許多改善傷口癒合的方法被發表出來,例如探討:縫合力、應力刺激、藥物注射、營養攝取等因子對傷口癒合的影響。傷口癒合的過程可以簡要分為三個階段,分別為發炎期、增生期和成熟期。
英文摘要 How to improve wound healing such as preventing hypertrophic scarring and keloids formation is an important clinical issue. The wound healing process would end in ranging from nearly scarless healing to an extent of abnormal scar formation. There are almost 100 million people annually developing a scar worldwide with 31 percent of the scar as a remain of a trauma.
Many physical and chemical treatments for wound healing are intensively studied in order to find the key factors that influence the mechanisms of wound healing and to improve healing. Factors such as closing tension, mechanical stimulation, injection, and nutrition etc. had been studied on wound healing. Wound healing contains a sequence of complicated, concurrent biological responses including inflammation, remodeling, and maturation.
In investigating wound healing, the tensile strength of the healing skin ought to be one of the critical indicators of skin recovery because skin must be able to sustain stress. However, most studies on wound healing in the past were mostly relied on gross and pathologic observations. Studies in the past focused on mechanical evaluations are rare seen.
Thus, in our previous study, we had investigated the influence of different suture methods on skin wound healing. The present study based on our previous animal model, continued to investigate other parameters on skin wound healing in the mechanical respect. First, we investigated the substance for prevention and managements of abnormal scars formation—Dermatix . We applied Dermatix on the incision wound of our animal model and observed its effects on wound healing at healing time 1, 2, 4 and 6 weeks. We introduced the recovery index to normalize the variations in mechanical properties of each rat skin at different growing conditions. The recovery index (%) was defined as (tensile strength of the wounded skin)/(tensile strength of unwounded skin) on the same rat dorsal skin.
The results were that wounds treated with Dermatix did not have significant differences in recovery index from untreated wounds statistically (p=0.093). However, at all the healing time points, there are at least 23% differences between the recovery index of Dermatix treated wounds and untreated wounds. Coupling with pathological observations helped clarify the effects of Dermatix on would healing.
Second part of this thesis focused on the influence of far infrared radiation (FIR) on skin wound healing. Recently, FIR had been used to treat partially ischemia and chronic ulcer wound. Thus, the study investigated the influence of FIR on the incision wound of our animal model. Wounds secured with the same suture methods as previous study did were exposed to FIR 5 times per week and observed at healing time 1, 2, 4 and 6 weeks. Results showed that there are no significant improvements comparing the wounds exposed to FIR with the wounds without FIR at healing time 6 weeks.
