Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Adjuvant Radiation vs Injection in Preventing Post-Excisional Recurrence of Keloids

Keloids can cause physical impairment and cosmetic disfigurement resulting in diminished quality of life. Excision for keloids is usually indicated after failure to respond to conservative therapy and may be combined with radiation therapy (RT) or injections of triamcinolone (TAC) or fluorouracil (5-FU).

Authors: Grabowski G, Pacana MJ, Chen E Abstract Keloid and hypertrophic scar formation after orthopaedic surgical closure is a complex issue. The nature and location of procedures maximize wound tension, leave foreign bodies, and diminish dermal supply, all potentiating keloid formation. There is little discussion regarding the pathophysiology and management of this recurrent problem in orthopaedic literature. Keloid formation is a fibroproliferative disorder resulting in extensive production of extracellular matrix and collagen, but prevention and treatment is poorly understood. Patient and surgical factors contr...

Rationale: Micro-plasma radio-frequency (MPR) technology has been demonstrated a safe and effective treatment for kinds of scars, but there is no report about the application of the MPR on keloids. In this investigation, we creatively use MPR technology combining with hypofractionated electron-beam radiation to cure keloids. Patient concerns and Diagnoses: From February 2013 to December 2016, 22 Asian patients (16 male, 6 female, age 19–46 years, mean age 28.14 ± 7.31 years) with keloids over half a year were enrolled in this study. Interventions and Outcomes: All patients received a single MPR tec...

AbstractKeloids can be recalcitrant, and a well-planned treatment strategy is essential. Multiple ear piercings have recently become popular, particularly among younger age groups. Management of keloids that develop after piercing of the ear cartilage may be particularly problematic. Helical rim keloids are difficult to excise because of the complex, three-dimensional, cartilaginous structure of the helix and its thin and tightly adherent covering layer of skin. The chondrocutaneous advancement flap introduced by Antia and Buch may be a useful reconstructive option for a helical rim keloid after marginal loss of a segment ...
