Abrasions are superficial injuries of the skin resulting in a break in the continuity of tissue. They are simplest form of injuries which may heal without scar or with scar and traumatic tattooing. Here we present a case series of 15 patients with traumatic abrasions treated by using lyophilized collagen having autonomous self-healing ability.
Collagen sheets provide a well qualified wound cover providing an effective barrier to infection, retaining body heat, and promoting rapid healing through promoting epithelialization. In our series the use of collagen resulted in better quality wound healing and overall wound treatment. The cost factor is reduced and the pain associated with dressing can be avoided.
