Application of skin flaps is a main strategy for treatment of skin
lesions but proper treatments should be applied to improve skin flap survival rate and achieve higher and better treatment quality. if we could
decrease mentioned events and increase expression of the cell-survival pathways, we would have more survival and more beneficial results.
Forty sprauge-dawley rats (180-240g) were divided into four
groups: (1)sham- skin was cut in 8×3 cm without elevation, (2)flap- two parallel incisions were
connected caudally and skin elevation, (3)low dose carvacrol+flap, and (4)high dose carvacrol+flap
Carvacrol increased the viability of skin flaps, induced more neovascularization
specially in distal flap areas, decreased mda contents, increased sod and decreased mpo activities, decreased bax and increased bcl-2 expression.
Our results proved that by administrating a therapeutic agent
(carvacrol), samples show decrease in markers of ir-derived ros injury like these studies.
