It was hypothesized that a wet (liquid) environment rather than a dry or moist one would accelerate the wound healing process. We compared skin repair by secondary intention in full-thickness skin wounds in wet (saline), moist (hydrocolloid), and dry (gauze) conditions in an established porcine wound healing model. The study included three animals with a total of 70 wounds… CONTINUE READING
