Abstract
This study was undertaken to compare, objectively, healing rates (in dogs) of wounds caused by CO2 laser with those caused by a scalpel. The rates of contraction and epithelialization of standard wounds were determined with daily measurement of the wound area from the time of wounding until the wound had healed. Results demonstrate significant delays in both wound contraction (p equals 0.0001) and epithelialization (p equals 0.0001) for CO2 laser-created wounds when compared to those seen in scalpel-created wounds. The appearance of the healed areas appeared comparable for both modalities.
