Peran Gambaran Leukosit terhadap Kesembuhan Luka antara H-Plasty dengan Linear Closure pada Kucing Lokal (Felis catus).

Skin wounds commonly seen in veterinary practice can be repaired with a variety of reconstructive choices such as skin flaps. The research purpose is to learn and understand the healing process between skin flap H-Plasty and linear closure in domestic house cats by observing leukocyte profiles. Six male cats divided into two groups were used of which open wounds of 2x2 cm were made on the skin of lateral thorax. In H-Plasty group, 1 cm parallel incisions were made on each sides of the defect, skin is undermined, advanced over the defect and sutured. In linear closure group, the elliptic defect was sutured across the widest part, continued by dividing each remaining segment in half with subsequent sutures. Blood was drawn of 1 ml from the medial saphenous vein for an alternating 3 days of a 12-day period and the profiles’ results were observed. Both flaps showed insignificant differences (P>0.05) in the profiles of segmented neutrophils, lymphocytes and monocytes whereas significant differences (p<0.05) was seen in the profiles of leukocytes, banded neutrophils and eosinophils when compared between observation time. The profiles’ results were all within reference range, therefore both skin flaps can be used to close wounds.
