Contused and Abrased Wound of Skin Soft Tissues with MEBO

Acute wounds with skin soft tissues contused and abrased are acute skin injuries due to the composite forces in trauma, which are the complication of abrased wound and contused wound, and belong to skin ulcers [7].

Although acute wound with skin soft tissues contused and abrased is not severe in clinical practice, but its incidence is high, and the wound is in the exposed place with severe pollution. Traditionally, astringent for external application is used to obtain subcrustal healing.

Although the wound turns dry fast, subcrustal infection often comes into existence. The incidence of scar is high, resulting in dysfunction, ugly appearance, and bad life quality. It is believed in modern wound restoration standpoints that wetness is in favor of wound healing [8]. 


When treating the open wounds, traditional dry binding therapy can lead to superficial necrosis, impede the regeneration of epithelia, therefore moist therapy is better [9]. 


1. He RL [10], Liu WG etc. [11] treated 39 and 96 cases of skin wound with soft tissues contused and abrased respectively. Phase Ⅰ healing was acquired for all the patients, and the healing time was 7-30 days. Based on the comparative study between MEBO therapy and high efficiency iodine therapy in the healing mode of wound, healing time, local therapeutic reactions, analgesic effects, scar incidence at 3 months, toxicity and side effects when treating acute skin soft tissue contused and abrased wound.

2. He RL etc. [12] came to a conclusion: MEBO therapy was better with fast analgesia, good curative effects, fewer pains during dressing change, strong anti-infection effects, short healing time, alleviated scar healing, little pigmentation in the healed wound, few toxic and side effects, and better patient toleration. 

3. Meng Xia etc. [13] treated 23 case of maxillofacial soft tissue abrasion. All the wounds were healed with first intension without infection, pigmentation and apparent scar. 

4. Sai FD etc. [14] treated 10 severe extremity and joint skin abrasion patients with MEBO. The treatment course was 7-15 days. All the wounds were healed without infection, scar or dysfunction, and the damaged joints returned to normal.
