Does the addition of matrix destruction with phenol result in better outcomes than surgical intervention alone for the treatment of ingrown toenails?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The addition of matrix destruction with phenol appears more effective than surgical intervention alone in reducing the recurrence of ingrown toenails (SOR: B, systematic review of heterogeneous RCTs). No difference was noted in healing time, infection rate, hemorrhage, or postoperative pain when comparing surgical procedures with and without phenol (SOR: B, systematic review of RCTs).
