A 51-year-old male was exposed to an explosion at work and presented with a third-degree burn on his back, neck and right ear.
(Figure 1). The explosion caused him to become deaf in the right ear and left him with only 25% hearing in the left ear, which required use of a hearing aid. PracaSil-Plus was applied three times a week to the affected area. After 21 days, the back, neck and ear were completely covered with a new layer of skin
(Figure 2). The pigmentation was rebuilt and the new skin was smooth and soft.
CASE STUDIES FEATURING PracaSil™-Plus
A 72-year-old caucasian male had surgery to remove an acinic cell carninoma. Following surgery, treatment for the carcinoma was continued with 33 sessions of radiation therapy to the right side of the lateral area of his face. The area that was exposed to the radiation became extremely painful, sensitive, dry and scaly
(Figure 1). PracaSil-Plus was applied four times per day and as needed when the skin felt dry. By day 4, there was significant tissue re-growth. By day 10, the area was almost completely healed. By day 14, the skin was smooth, soft and pink and the patient considered it completely healed and pain-free
A 40-year-old Caucasian woman was severely contused while participating in a fitness competition. She fell on both elbows, badly damaging the right and left sides with repeated impact on the ground. This caused open wounds where multiple layers of skin were scraped off. Following the incident, a compounded formula containing mupirocin in PracaSil-Plus (Figure 1) was applied three to four times daily for 11 days. After this time, the skin healed completely on both elbows, as shown in the figures below. Mupirocin was chosen to prevent bacterial contamination in the area. The skin of the volar elbow region differs in thickness from the dorsal region and has greater flexibility which covers important structures, such as vessels, tendons and nerves. Conversely, the dorsal skin is characterized by high mobility with respect to underlying tissues to enable the complete flexion and extension of the elbow (Battiston et al., 2013). Due to dorsal elbow skin character, the healing process at this location can be difficult.
