Dear Sir Bryan Wixted:
Thank you very much for your kind massege. It is my pleasure to work together on these products. I am still using Supragel and Supracel on selective cases. Yesterday the patient (case 1 ) phoned me saying that all her ulcers had been healed and she was very happy because one surgeon previously advised her to do amputation. By the way she is a case of post RTA defect. I will send all available results soon. On 1996 I worked on Silgel (Nagor) and Cicacare (Smith&nephew) we found nice results on postburn hypertrophic scars. I agree that fixation is important ,and the occlusion is the cornerstone of the effective management.
Thanks.
