English Abstract Journal Article --- Old month value: Sep
Hypertrophic scars and keloids are a hyperproliferative response of connective tissue to trauma. Histologically the difference between the two is that keloids invade normal tissue whereas hypertrophic scars remain confined within the original wound. A variety of treatments have been proposed, which we will review according to their efficiency. Prevention of pathological scarring will also be discussed, and we will present our current attitude to treat these scars. As a surgical treatment for keloids, we have been using the intralesional technique which we think gives better results.
