Example text

This occurs when there is apposition of the wound edges and minimal surrounding tissue trauma that causes least inflammation and leaves the best scar. Delayed primary intention healing occurs when the wound edges are not opposed immediately, which may be necessary in contaminated or untidy wounds. The inflammatory and proliferative phases of healing are well established when delayed closure of the wound is carried out. This is also called healing by tertiary intention in some texts and will result in a less satisfactory scar than would result after healing by primary intention.

Type of fluids There is continuing debate over which resuscitation fluid is best for the management of shock. There is no ideal resuscitation fluid, and it is more important to understand how and when to administer it. In most studies of shock resuscitation there is no overt difference in response or outcome between crystalloid solutions (normal saline, Hartmann’s solution, Ringer’s lactate) or colloids (albumin or commercially available products). Furthermore, there is less volume benefit to the administration Alexis Frank Hartmann, 1898–1964, paediatrician, St Louis, MO, USA, described the solution; should not be confused with the name of Henri Albert Charles Antoine Hartmann, French surgeon, who described the operation that goes by his name.

The wound tissue formed in the early part of this phase is called granulation tissue. In the latter part of this phase, there is an increase in the tensile strength of the wound due to increased collagen, which is at first deposited in a random fashion and consists of type III collagen. The remodelling phase is characterised by maturation of collagen (type I replacing type III until a ratio of 4:1 is achieved). There is a realignment of collagen fibres along the lines of tension, decreased wound vascularity and wound contraction due to fibroblast and myofibroblast activity.
