Some surgeons use local or parenteral, concentrated deproteinized calf blood (serum) extract (like Solcoseryl, for example), with trophic and healing action in order to speed up the process of healing a skin wound. This serum containes nucleotides, nucleozides, glycolipides, oligopeptides, aminoacids, essential microelements, electrolits and intermediar glucidic and lipidic metabolism products that âfeedâ the tissue and helps the wound to capture more oxygen, needed for regeneration and healing. This is only an additive and some surgeons use the extract to help speed up the tissue healing process. However, it is not approved for a regular use in every wound so I suggest that you consult with the supervising doctor and request more information about whether or not this treatment option might work for you, or not.
