The aims of this study were to examine effects of high-voltage stimulation (HVS) on wound closure, tensile properties, and mitotic activity. Thirty-six rabbits were assigned to experimental (n = 18) or control groups. Each animal was anesthetized and a full-thickness incision, 3.5 cm long, was made on its back. After 24 hours, experimental rabbits received HVS for two hours, twice daily, for seven days. Polarity was negative the first three days and positive thereafter. Wound closure for HVS… CONTINUE READING
