Abstract

The development of research in genetic and biochemical fields has made it possible to investigate certain metabolic aspects of the microenvironment of chronic skin lesions, including altered cell signalling, highlighting its importance in determining the blockage of repair processes. The purpose of this prospective observational study is to evaluate the efficacy of a medical device consisting of a polyester scaffold enriched with an oleic matrix with controlled release of ROS in the management of LABC skin lesions. During the period from October 2018 to March 2020, 20 patients with locally advanced breast cancer were enrolled and ten were treated with the devices abovementioned. After 30 days of treatment all patients treated reported a general improvement in local conditions with reduction in ulceration area, exudate and odour. The results suggest that the application of these devices even in particular conditions (healthy and neoplastic tissue) does not lead to the onset of negative effects due to the release of ROS, though their role in tissue repair requires further study to fully understand their potential and increase the fields of application of the device by exploiting its modulation capabilities.
