Dr Pavan Kumar M Patil, Dr Anil Kumar Malhari

Abstract :

Background: Wound Healing is a dynamic process involving soluble mediators, a variety of cells, and extracellular matrix. Oral and maxillofacial trauma often produces open wounds. To bacteria, biological dressings such as collagen are impermeable and establish the most functional interface between the wound surface and the environment. Collagen dressing has advantages in terms of ease of application than traditional dressings and is safe, non–immunogenic, non–pyrogenic, hypoallergenic and pain free. This study aimed to compare the efficacy of collagen dressing and conventional dressing for post traumatic facial aasions. Material and method: A prospective interventional study among 60 patients with post traumatic facial aasion attending the department of plastic surgery was included in present study after obtaining the informed consent. All the patients were randomly chosen into two groups of 30 patients each, Group A treated with collagen dressing method and Group B by conventional closed dressing with jelonet and Neosporin ointment. Result: In our study, total of 60 patients were included. There was no significant difference between the age and gender among two groups. The patients treated with collagen memane showed a significant improvement in the wound healing, reduction of pain, epithelialisation and overall effectiveness scoring compared to conventional dressing method. Conclusion: The collagen memane dressing showed a faster, better and good healing rate among the study participants.
