    Role of angiogenesis and angiogenic factors in acute and chronic wound healing

    Thittamaranahalli Muguregowda Honnegowda , Pramod Kumar , Echalasara Govindarama Padmanabha Udupa , Sudesh Kumar , Udaya Kumar , Pragna Rao
    Angiogenesis plays a crucial role in wound healing by forming new blood vessels from preexisting vessels by invading the wound clot and organizing into a microvascular network throughout the granulation tissue. This dynamic process is highly regulated by signals from both serum and the... Read more

    Effect of limited access dressing on surface pH of chronic wounds

    Pramod Kumar , Thittamaranahalli Muguregowda Honnegowda
    Aim: Changes in the pH of chronic wounds can inhibit the optimal activity of various enzymes in the wound environment, thereby delaying wound healing. The aim of the present study is to monitor the effect of limited access dressing (LAD) on the pH on the surface of chronic wounds. Methods: A... Read more

    Morphometry of subcutaneous fat lobules of the abdomen and its implication in obesity

    Arvind K. Pandey , Pramod Kumar , Kodavoor Shrinivas Aithal , Rama Kotian Sushma , Antony Sylvan D’Souza
    Aim: The subcutaneous fat in the lower abdomen (LA) is more resistant to resorption as compared to the upper abdomen (UA). Males and females have variability in fat deposition and resorption in the abdominal region. Hence, there could be a difference in morphology of fat cells of these regions.... Read more
