Sample text

The body continues to heal the wound anywhere from 6 months to 2–3 years depending on the patient’s health. The collagen support structure is gradually strengthened until a plateau in tensile strength is achieved. , 2005), hence, healed tissue will never be as strong as uninjured tissue. As described, wound healing results from a series of physiologically active phases in which many cells and soluble mediators interact to promote the growth of new tissue. A wound is termed acute if it resulted from a sudden, solitary insult such as a traumatic injury or a surgical intervention and if it can neatly and efficiently progress from one phase to the next.

In their final (third)instar stage, the larvae migrate away from the lesion and drop to the ground where they pupate, often leaving behind a festering wound with an extensive area of damaged, inflamed and undermined skin. Infestation is acutely disturbing for the sheep, causing a loss of fertility and if left untreated, rapidly leads to death (Cruickshank and Wall, 2002). L. sericata is still the primary agent of blowfly strike in northern Europe. However, a close relative of L. sericata, its sister species Lucilia cuprina, is the major strike blowfly of sheep in Australia.
