    1) Keloid Scars 

    2) Repair of damaged glottic mucosa.

        


    Keloid scars have been and continue to be a challenging aspect of reconstructive surgery. New gene identity may help to understand molecular basis of the keloid, thus identifying those who are genetically susceptible.

         


    At present use of Intralesional use of 5-Fluorouracil appears useful in good scar formation by suppressing fibroblastic activities, endothelial cell growth factor release,controlling angiogenesis.

         


    Repair of damaged glottic mucosa may be aided by use of topical application of mitomycin-C as well as utilisation of hyaluronic acid. The normal mucosal return with the help of glottic to function better.
