UNLABELLED Increasing data suggest that the skin nerve system is involved in wound healing. The objective of this study was to investigate the outgrowth of nerve fibers during the burn wound remodeling process and to analyze possible differences between normotrophic and hypertrophic burn wounds. In a prospective study, biopsies were taken from 22 patients with spontaneously healed partial-thickness burns at 1, 4 and 7-month post-burn. Nerve outgrowth and the expression of the neuropeptides… CONTINUE READING
