Thanks for watching! Visit Website Bandaging can promote the formation of EGT by creating a low oxygen, high moisture environment. Bandages can also lead to chronic inflammation through direct wound irritation. Low oxygen levels in a wound have been shown to promote the proliferation of fibroblasts, a principal cell type of granulation tissue. Bandages have been found to lead to slower wound closure and a greater likelihood of excessive granulation tissue. If possible, application of bandages should be avoided on wounds healing by second intention.

The best way to granulate tissue, and create a healthy wound bed, is with a simple paste made of sugar and water. Make the paste thick enough so that you can pack it on bone, and wrap with cotton padding and vetwrap. While silver is beneficial, these compounds do not rapidly cover the bone with granulation tissue.
Often times, wounds treated with these compounds will stall. This can be dangerous, as if the bone is not covered quickly enough, it can start to die, become weakened, or infected. Also, this unnecessarily delays healing. PF Wonder Salve will rapidly close in area, and keep excessive tissue granulation in check.

15: Exuberant Granulation Tissue
References Summary The formation of exuberant granulation tissue EGT is a frequent complication of wounds healing by second intention on the limbs of horses. Among the large number of contributing factors, chronic inflammation is foremost and often goes unrecognized because of the mild signs it elicits. The stimulus for formation of EGT is reduced when prevention and treatment of chronic inflammation are combined with excision of the protruding granulation tissue. This approach allows a smooth transition from fibroplasia to wound contraction and epithelialization and usually obviates the recurrence of EGT. The topical application of a corticosteroid, used in a precise and controlled manner, and the use of silicone sheet dressings, as well as skin grafting, are valuable in preventing the formation of EGT. In cases where EGT is already present, excision of the protruding granulation tissue is, currently, the treatment of choice.
