(a) Day 0: wound size, 146 × 135 mm. (b) Day 0: photomicrograph number 1-H and E stained section (100x) shows: dense neutrophilic exudates on the surface of wound. (c) Day 4: wound size, 130 × 120 mm. (d) Day 4: photomicrograph number 2-H and E stained section (100x) shows: fibrinous exhudate on the surface and base of ulcer is formed by moderately inflamed granulation tissue. (e) Day 8: wound size, 130 × 117 mm. (f) Day 8: photomicrograph number 3-H and E stained section (100x) shows: many newly formed blood vessels and dense fibro collagenous tissue. (g) SSG uptake seen.
