Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report preliminary results with the tissue optimization (TO) treatment with a radio electric asymmetric conveyer (REAC) in promoting the repair of surgical wounds.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Two subjects, a 54-year-old male with a tear bruise on the upper third of the leg and a 19-year-old female with a stab wound to the hand, were treated with 12 REAC-TO treatment sessions.

RESULTS:

In both patients, the wounds showed shorter healing time compared with the time usually required for similar wounds, and good repair quality.

CONCLUSION:

REAC device with its specific treatment protocols may be an alternative therapy for wound healing.

KEYWORDS:

healing time; quality of repair; tissue regeneration; tissue repair
