A wound represents the interruption of the continuity of tissue that is followed by damage or cellular death. Wound healing occurs due to a competitive mechanism between the synthesis and lysis of collagen. Any factor that increases collagen lysis or reduces its synthesis may result in changes in the healing process, i.e., nutritional deficiencies.… (More)
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 (lambda400-2000 nm) with 20 or 40 J/cm(2).
There are some reports in the literature on different effects of polarized light on wound healing.… (More)
