Hello Again Mr.& Dr.Rassman
We’re all in here thanking you for your salvation blog as am now going thru it on a daily basis.
I’ve this Revolutionary News for you which might be the long awaited Deliverence to many of us who have had Traditional Strip HT & left with a linear thin scar(hopefully) in the back making us feel so confined. Have you ever heard of a new innovative drug being developed by ”Renovo plc.” so called ”Juvista”, as mentioned it’s now in the PhaseII clinical trial & might see the light in the few coming years. It’s basically used during the surgery by being injected to the wound edges while suturing(i think) which will later lead to an almost scareless healing (GOD I HOPE THIS GONNA HAPPEN), please comment.
Juvista consists of recombinant TGFÎ²3. TGFÎ²3 is present at high levels in developing embryonic skin and in embryonic wounds that heal with no scar, but by contrast, is present at low levels in adult wounds that scar. Since the FDA has not approved of this drug yet and it still is in clinical trials, I will not comment much until further studies have been published. To get this drug to be approved by the FDA may take many years. In the mean time, please take a look at Techniques to Minimize Donor Area Scarring, which shows the modern techniques employed today (deep fascia closure and trichophytic incisions).
