Example text

Collagen is manufactured by fibroblasts as a repeating chain of the tripeptide of glycine–proline– hydroxyproline (or hydroxylysine) which is secreted as procollagen and then arranged in the triple helix of tropocollagen. After the amino and carboxy ends are cleaved off, these collagen molecules cross-link into fibrils and fibres with a quarter-length overlay. The type of weave determines the type of collagen. There are at least 10 types, of which types 1 and 3 figure importantly in healing. Type 1 comprises 80% of collagen in skin and tendon.

A personal favourite is perforated adhesive tape (Mefix, Hypafix, Fixomull) directly applied and left to drop off. SKIN GRAFTS 1 Healing at the SSG donor site The area epitheliazes from the margins and from dermal remnants, particularly the hair follicles, sebaceous glands, and sweat glands. These dermal structures are derived from the epidermal cells which invade the dermis in the third month of fetal life. Healing commences under a clot of fibrin and blood within the first 24 hours. Thin SSG donor areas will heal in 7 days.

A graft has no blood supply but must attain one; a flap has supply but must keep it. - The surgeon who removes a breast with a malignant tumour should be the mortal enemy of the surgeon who is closing the wound (Halstead). - Treat the patient not the X-ray. - We diagnose only things we think about, we think about things we know, we only know things we’ve studied. - You can always cut out more, never less. - An operation is an assault on a person, legalized but still an assault (Walt). - Even in plastic surgery, where meticulous artistry might be thought to be the first consideration, the best results are obtained by those who think, plan, and prepare, rather than those who perform with the self-conscious skill of the trapeze artist (Ogilvie).
