The influence of helium plasma flow on deep burning wounds healing is reviewed. The research was performed using Wistar rats. The experimental part is represented by three series of experiments. In all the series preliminarily depilated dorsal skin area was irradiated by the SUPR-M facility. The morphomechanic changes of skin under the impact of plasma flow were studied. The skin and granulating wound exposure was explored, as well as the capabilities of helium plasma flow when preparing grafts for autoplasty. During the postoperative period the influence of donor skin grafts on wound repair was tested. The criterion of plasma flow efficiency was the wound tensometry of scar forming. The experimental results of this work prove the expediency of helium plasma flow application when healing deep burns. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
