Table 1. Size of Flare Area and Blood Perfusion within the Area after Incision
*P < 0.01 versus pre (intragroups).
†P < 0.01 between groups.
Control = blood flow monitored before and until 30 min after the incision had been made in the subjects receiving posttraumatic infiltration with saline or lidocaine; Presaline = pretraumatic injection of 0.2 ml saline; Prelidocaine = pretraumatic subcutaneous injection of 0.2 ml lidocaine, 1%; Pre = basal level; Postinfiltration = data obtained at 10 min after subcutaneous injection of saline or lidocaine; Postincision = data obtained at 1, 15, and 30 min after the incision had been made; Flux = blood flow; RU = relative units.
