The influence of pulsed electrical stimulation on the wound healing of burned rat skin

Abstract

Electrostimulation of wounds caused healing to proceed in a thoroughly organized manner. A trial using rats subjected to second degree burns was conducted to evaluate, under scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the healing capabilities of skin to which an antiseptic (iodine) and referred electrical stimulation were applied. Untreated, unharmed skin was also studied as control. Images obtained using SEM revealed that only the repaired skin of the electrostimulated group had an appearance similar to that of the control skin (kappa = 1), and that the overall appearance of the repaired skin was compatible with a well organized healing process.
