Title: Effect of delaying radiation on wound healing

Abstract

The effect of postwounding local radiation was measured in an animal model. Tensile strength and histologic appearance of wounds irradiated on Day 0, 3, and 5 were studied. The irradiated wounds were all significantly weaker than the nonirradiated wounds, but delaying the radiation did not benefit wound healing.
