Abstract
Introduction: The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of our combination therapy protocol for head and neck keloid treatment.
Methods: We treated keloids using surgical excision, platelet-rich plasma and post-operative in office superficial photon X-ray radiation therapy.
Results: No recurrences determined. Two of 21 keloids displayed poor results.
Conclusion: Surgical excision combined with platelet rich plasma and postoperative in office superficial radiation therapy achieved a 100% non-recurrence rate at 4th to 11th month follow-up. This protocol appears to be a viable alternative in the management of keloids.
