p = 0.120). Important statistical differences were observed in vascularity ( p < 0.003) and morphometric results ( p < 0.001), where collagen was found in small amounts in the lidocaine group. The results of this study suggest that local infiltration of lidocaine produces significant histopathologic changes, but it does not substantially alter wound healing as there were no differences in the breaking strength of the wounds.
