Horse - Wound and keloids

Lacerated wound on horse left-posterior shin.
Surgical reconstruction failed.
Treatment with Hypermixvet and permanent bandage.
Course:22 weeks.

HOWTO

Immediately wash the injury after trauma with fountain water and Marseille soap to remove all foreign bodies or residues from the soil and flaps that have been torn up to now.

Trim the hair in the entire wound zone, even on flaps that have been torn up to now.

Wash the surface with physiological or lactate ringer without using a disinfectant like bleach, betadine, or hydrogen peroxide.

Dry with non-sterile gauze; do not use wadding because it leaves behind a residue.

Then brush the entire wound area with Hypermixvet® covering the wound with one or two cotton gauzes that are not necessarily sterile and well-soaked with Hypermixvet® depending on how big the wound is (fold if necessary or as many as needed to cover the wound surface well).

Bundle this thin layer of gauze imbued with auto-agglomerating bandage (Vetrap) making sure to always start from the lowest part of the wound until you pass the upper margins of the wound.

Do not interject soft pads such as gauzed cotton, German cotton or wadding under any circumstances.

Begin medication from the first day of the trauma and never leave the wound uncovered until it has completely healed (permanent occlusive bandage), renewing medication at least once a day.

From the second day on, wash the wound upon renewing medication only with physiology or lactate ringer. Do not use disinfectants under any circumstances and proceed as described with Hypermixvet®

If there is no way to renew the medication on a daily basis, then interject a small plastic tube perforated in many areas between the soaked gauze and the auto-agglomerating bandage making it stick out from above.

Inject Hypermixvet® through this every day using a needleless syringe to be connected with the small plastic tube.

Remove the bandaging after three, max. five days to verify that the medication dosages have been enough to soak the entire wounded surface.

If the horse has a genetic predisposition to it, then the keloid reaction will appear between the 7th and 14th day of the trauma irrespective of the treatment that has been commenced.

In order to make the keloid regress, the wound must be continually wrapped as described, if soft padding is interjected then compression wouldn't be applied in an efficient fashion and the keloid won't regress.

After the keloid's reabsorption effect due to the Hypermixvet®'s action, and when performing the daily removal of the bandage, a superficial hemorrhage from the wound bed will be verified lasting only tens of seconds.

Hypermixvet® therapy can be initiated even with full-blown keloid. In this case, excess redundant tissue regression will begin on the 5th day of permanent occlusive bandaging (reduction of pad size along with the superficial hemorrhage phenomenon).

The hemorrhage phenomenon will be verified during every change of medication up to wound reepithelisation and the clinical indication that the keloid has been brought under control.

In case of accidental removal of the bandaging and resumption of keloid proliferation, restore medication with permanent occlusive bandaging and Hypermixvet®. In such a case, the hemorrhage phenomenon will arise from the 5th day until the reintroduction of permanent medication.

Correct application of the therapeutic protocol with Hypermixvet® renders caustic substances useless.
