Hi, keloid is an abnormal proliferation of scar tissue that forms at the site of cutaneous injury (eg, on the site of a surgical incision or trauma); it does not regress and grows beyond the original margins of the scar.
Mechanical compression dressings, Silicone gel sheets and silicone occlusive dressings, Pharmacological therapy has long been a mainstay and relatively effective first-line therapy of treatment of keloids, simple excision surgery.
Recurrence rates with surgery alone range from 45-100%. The combination of surgical excision with other modalities, such as corticosteroid injection, steroid injection with pressure dressing, x-ray therapy, interstitial radiation, single fraction radiation, teletherapy radiation, and brachytherapy have revealed relatively good results, with 5-year recurrence rates reported from 8-50%.
