 D

a and b

Ans. D

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘ a ‘ , ‘ b ‘

Factors that adversely affect wound healing

•   Local

•   Abnormal blood supply (ischemia due to arterial disease or impaired venous drainage, e.g.

arteriosclerosis, varicose veins)

•   Infection

•   Presence of foreign material, necrotic tissue or excessive blood (hematoma)

•   Movement in injured area

•   Tension in injured area

•   Irradiation (decreases the viability of cells)

•   Denervation

•   Systemic

•   Advanced age

•   Failure of collagen synthesis d/t

– vitamin C deficiency

– protein deficiency

– zinc deficiency

– Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (disorder characterized by defective collagen formation,

hyperextensible joints, fragile tissues and impaired wound healing)

•     Diabetes mellitus

•     Corticosteroid excess (administration of exogenous corticosteroids or Cushing’s syndrome)

•     Malnutrition

•     Anemia

•  Obesity

•   Drugs (steroids, cytotoxic medication, intensive antibiotic therapy)

•   Genetic disorders (osteogenesis imperfecta, Ehler-Danlos syndrome, Marfan syndrome)

•   Systemic infection

•   Malignant disease

•  Temperature

•  Trauma, hypovolemia and hypoxia

•   Uremia

•   Bleeding disorder


Q. 2

The Vitamin which has inhibitory effect on wound healing is –

 A

Vitamin -A

 B

Vitamin – E

 C

Vitamin -C

 D

Vitamin B-complex

Q. 2

The Vitamin which has inhibitory effect on wound healing is –

 A

Vitamin -A

 B

Vitamin – E

 C

Vitamin -C

 D

Vitamin B-complex

Ans. B

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘b’ i.e., Vitamin-E. 


Q. 3

Fibroblasts in healing wound are derived from –

 A

Local mesenchyme

 B

Epithelium

 C

Endothelium

 D

Vascular fibrosis

Q. 3

Fibroblasts in healing wound are derived from –

 A

Local mesenchyme

 B

Epithelium

 C

Endothelium

 D

Vascular fibrosis

Ans. A

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘a’ i.e. Local mesenchyme 

Fibroblasts are specialized cells that differentiate from resting mesenchyme cells in connective tissue. They do not arrive in the wound cleft by diapedesis from circulating cells.

 A

Selenium

 B

Copper

 C

Zinc

 D

 A

Selenium

 B

Copper

 C

Zinc

 D

Iron

Ans. C

Explanation:

Ans. C: Zinc

Symptoms of Zinc Deficiency

  • Poor Immune system
  • Weight loss
  • Intercurrent infections
  • Hypogonadism in males
  • Lack of sexual development in females
  • Growth retardation
  • Dwarfism
  • Delayed puberty in adolescents
  • Rough skin
  • Poor appetite
  • Mental lethargy
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Short stature
  • Diarrhea

Congenital abnormalities causing zinc deficiency may lead to a disease called acrodermatitis enteropathica.


Q. 5

Most important vitamin, which promotes wound healing ?

 A

Vitamin C

 B

Vitamin D

 C

Vitamin A

 D

Niacin

Q. 5

Most important vitamin, which promotes wound healing ?

 A

Vitamin C

 B

Vitamin D

 C

Vitamin A

 D

Niacin

Ans. A

Explanation:

 

  • Vitamin C is required for collagen synthesis.
  • Due to its important role in collagen synthesis, vitamin C is required for adequate wound healing.

Ans. C

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘c’ i.e., Inhibited by hematoma 

Factors causing impairment of wound healing

A. Systemic factors

  • Poor nutrition (protein deficiency, vitamin C deficiency).
  • Metabolic abnormalities (Diabetes mellitus).
  • Poor circulatory status (Inadequate blood supply).
  • Hormones, e.g. glucocorticoids.

B. Local factors

  • Infection is the single most important factor.
  • Mechanical factors, e.g. early mobilization.
  • Foreign bodies (unnecessary sutures, fragments of steel or glass).
  • Wound in poorly vacularized area, e.g. foot.
