130 Possible Causes for Dermal Contractures

  • Burn Injury

    If deep dermal burns are not identified as such and are wrongly given conservative treatment, scar contractures may form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the burn fails to heal in 3 weeks, the risk for hypertrophic scar and contracture formation increases and the healed wound exhibits an aesthetically displeasing scar.[emedicine.medscape.com] In some cases, the use of dermal replacement materials can be sensible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hidradenitis Suppurativa

    It is characterised by the presence of tender subcutaneous nodules that may rupture, resulting in deep dermal abscesses, fibrosis with dermal contractures and induration of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] contractures and ropelike elevation of the skin, or double-ended (bridged) comedones. 4,6 Areas that may be affected by HS lesions are the axillae, areola of the breast,[journals.lww.com] […] purulent, and disfiguring. 4,6 Primary lesions can be painful or tender erythematous papules or nodules, painful or tender abscesses and inflamed draining papules or nodules, dermal[journals.lww.com]

  • Diabetic Ulcer

    Dermal skin substitutes help prevent wound contraction and offer greater mechanical stability.[clinicaladvisor.com] The goals of skin substitutes include wound coverage, complete wound closure, reduced healing time, reduced pain, reduced post-operative contracture, and improved aesthetics[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Familial Acne Inversa

    As the disease progresses, formation of fistulas, comedones, fibrosis, dermal contractures, and hardening of the skin occur.[rbcp.org.br] There were multiple, intermingled, 2 to 6 cm, at places linear hypertrophic and puckered scars and dermal contractures in the axillae and the anogenital region.[edoj.org.eg] contractures and ropelike elevation of the skin Double-ended comedones The axillae and the groin are the 2 areas most frequently affected.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Onychomycosis

    This creates a controlled dermal wound while leaving the epidermis intact.[alamedica.asia] The wound healing process stimulates growth of new collagen as well as contracture and tightening of the tissue.[alamedica.asia]
