In spite of the extensive clinical work reported in the area of electrical wound healing, electrical stimulation to augment chronic wound repair is still far from being widely accepted in clinical practice. Problems in designing clinical studies (size of the sample observed, control group, ethics of the procedure), evaluating treatment efficacy, rationales for use of the treatment, and unknown underlying mechanisms contribute to the aforementioned fact. In the present study, we evaluated low… CONTINUE READING
