These materials are classified as banana leaves in all the superior aspects. In addition, wound healing was more rapid: with the removal of the wound from the banana leaves, it was completed after approximately 8 days and with Vaseline gauze only after approximately 12 days. The researchers wanted to create effective and effective wound dressings, which are of great importance in poor countries.
