Honey and wound healing

Clinical observations on the wound healing properties of honey.

 

Efem SE.

University Department of Surgery, University Teaching Hospital, Calabar, Nigeria.

Fifty-nine patients with wounds and ulcers most of which (80 per cent) had failed to heal with conventional treatment were treated with unprocessed honey. Fifty-eight cases showed remarkable improvement following topical application of honey. One case, later diagnosed as Buruli ulcer, failed to respond. Wounds that were sterile at the outset, remained sterile until healed, while infected wounds and ulcer became sterile within 1 week of topical application of honey. Honey debrided wounds rapidly, replacing sloughs with granulation tissue. It also promoted rapid epithelialization, and absorption of oedema from around the ulcer margins.

Topical application of honey in treatment of burns.

 

Subrahmanyam M.

Department of Surgery, Dr V.M. Medical College, Maharashtra, India.

A total of 104 cases of superficial burn injury were studied to assess the efficiency of honey as a dressing in comparison with silver sulfadiazine gauze dressing. In the 52 patients treated with honey, 91 per cent of wounds were rendered sterile within 7 days. In the 52 patients treated with silver sulfadiazine, 7 per cent showed control of infection within 7 days. Healthy granulation tissue was observed earlier in patients treated with honey (mean 7.4 versus 13.4 days). Of the wounds treated with honey 87 per cent healed within 15 days as against 10 per cent in the control group. Relief of pain, a lower incidence of hypertrophic scar and postburn contracture, low cost and easy availability make honey an ideal dressing in the treatment of burns.

Honey-impregnated gauze versus amniotic membrane in the treatment of burns.

Subrahmanyam M.

Department of Surgery, Dr V. M. Medical College, Solapur, Maharashtra, India.

A prospective randomized clinical study to compare honey-impregnated gauze with amniotic membrane dressing in partial thickness burns was carried out. Sixty-four patients were studied. Forty of them were treated with honey-impregnated gauze and 24 were treated with amniotic membrane. The burns treated with honey healed earlier as compared to the amniotic membrane (mean 9.4 vs 17.5 days) (P < 0.001). Residual scars were noted in 8 per cent of patients treated with honey-impregnated gauze and in 16.6 per cent of cases treated with amniotic membrane (P < 0.001).

A prospective randomised clinical and histological study of superficial burn wound healing with honey and silver sulfadiazine.

Subrahmanyam M.

Department of Surgery, Dr Vaishampayan Memorial Medical College, Maharashtra, India.

Histological and clinical studies of wound healing have been made on comparable fresh partial thickness burns with honey dressing or silver sulfadiazine (SSD) in two groups of 25 randomly allocated patients. Of the wounds treated with honey 84 per cent showed satisfactory epithelialization by the 7th day, and in 100 per cent of the patients by the 21st day. In wounds treated with silver sulfadiazine, epithelialization occurred by the 7th day in 72 per cent of the patients and in 84 per cent of patients by 21 days. Histological evidence of reparative activity was seen in 80 per cent of wounds treated with the honey dressing by the 7th day with minimal inflammation. Fifty two per cent of the silver sulfadiazine treated wounds showed reparative activity with inflammatory changes by the 7th day. Reparative activity reached 100 per cent by 21 days with the honey dressing and 84 per cent with SSD. Thus in honey dressed wounds, early subsidence of acute inflammatory changes, better control of infection and quicker wound healing was observed while in the SSD treated wounds sustained inflammatory reaction was noted even on epithelialization.

Honey: nutritional and medicinal value.

Khan FR, Abadin ZU, Rauf N.

LLyes‘Onnen ysbyty gwynedd, NHS Trust UK, Bangor, North Wales, UK.

Honey is not only used as nutrition but also used in wound healing and as an alternative treatment for clinical conditions ranging from gastrointestinal tract (GIT) problems to ophthalmic conditions. We did the literature search and found interesting facts about the nutritional and medicinal value of honey. No wonder, it is a good source of nutrition, the results of the studies prove that it also helps in wound healing. On burns, it has an initial soothing and later rapid healing effects. It has been used as wound barrier against tumour implantation in laparoscopic oncological surgery. No infection has been reported from the application of honey to open wounds. It has a potential therapeutic role in the treatment of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Based on these facts, the use of honey in the surgical wards is highly recommended and patients about to undergo surgery should ask their surgeons if they could apply honey to their wounds postoperation.

Protective covering of surgical wounds with honey impedes tumor implantation.

HYPOTHESIS: Tumor implantation (TI) development at the surgical wound following cancer surgery is still an unresolved concern. Trocar site recurrence, which is likely a form of TI, has become one of the most controversial topics and, with the widespread acceptance of laparoscopic surgery, has caused renewed interest in questions about TI. Honey has positive effects on wound healing. Physiological and chemical properties of honey might prevent TI when applied locally. DESIGN, INTERVENTIONS, AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Sixty BALB/c strain mice, divided into 2 groups, were wounded in the posterior neck area. Group 1 mice formed the control group, and group 2 mice had wounds coated with honey before and after tumor inoculation. All wounds were inoculated with transplantable Ehrlich ascites tumor. The presence of TI was confirmed in the wounded area by histopathological examination on the 10th day. RESULTS: Tumor implantation was achieved in all group 1 animals and verified by palpable mass and histopathological examination. In group 2 mice, although TI could not be detected macroscopically, it was revealed by pathological examination in 8 cases. Tumor implantation was less likely in group 2 mice (8 of 30 vs 30 of 30; P<.001). CONCLUSIONS: Tumor implantation was markedly decreased by the application of honey pre- and postoperatively. It is possible that the physiological and chemical properties of honey protected wounds against TI. Honey could be used as a wound barrier against TI during pneumoperitoneum in laparoscopic oncological surgery and in other fields of oncological surgery.

Effects of topical application of honey on cutaneous wound healing in rabbits.

Oryan A, Zaker SR.

Pathology Department, Veterinary School, Shiraz University, Iran.

Although it has been known for many centuries that honey can accelerate wound healing, there have only been isolated reports of its use in the healing of burns, ulcers, infected wounds and open wounds. None of these reports developed a model to assess the changes in morphological and biochemical properties due to topical application of honey on cutaneous wounds. In the present investigation, efficacy of honey in the healing of cutaneous wounds of rabbits was studied on the basis of histopathological and biochemical changes. For this reason 40 healthy White New Zealand rabbits were randomly assigned to four equal groups. Using aseptic surgical technique, a 3 cm incision was made on the skin of the left thigh of each rabbit and the wounds of five rabbits in each group were twice daily treated with topical application of 5 ml pure unheated honey. The other half remained as untreated controls. Rabbits in groups A, B, C and D were biopsied on days 2, 7, 14 and 21 postoperatively respectively, and biopsies from the lesions of all groups were collected for histopathological studies and from groups C and D for biomechanical evaluations as well. Treated lesions showed less oedema, fewer polymorphonuclear and mononuclear cell infiltration, less necrosis, better wound contraction, improved epithelialization and lower glycosaminoglycan and proteoglycan concentration on days 2 and 7 postoperatively and better tissue organization and consequently an improved tissue ultimate strength and yield strength on days 14 and 21 postoperation. These findings suggest that honey applied topically on cutaneous wounds accelerates the healing processes and appears to have an important property that makes it ideal as a dressing for cutaneous wounds.
