The Plantar Porokeratosis on this 3 yr. old patient's foot. Dr. Brian Abbey of Bryan, TX wanted to avoid anesthetic injections at this age - and they weren't needed with TDS!
PK core penetration into the plantar dermis
is apparent & illustrates why many patients describe the pain as feeling "...like a needle being stuck in the bottom of my foot!".
The hyper-keratinized core of this PK lesion
was removed intact as seen in the video. This procedure was accomplished without any anesthesia - which almost all other techniques require. Patient, parent & Dr. Abbey all win!
Removal accomplished with a 5mm oval spoon curette & #15 scalpel blade - no need for anesthesia, vesicants, injections, or cryosurgery and a blood-free field is typical.
Tissue's turgid appearance after 24 hr Cure Period with the TransDermSolutions & final water application. Note the missing PK core and the intact dermis following debridement!
