It was thought that longitudinal nail growth increased during therapy because surface beading became more spaced apart. All these methods involve estimation of linear growth. As a measure of total matrix activity, this could be misleading. Hamilton sought to measure volume by the following equation : Volume = thickness (mm) × breadth (mm) × length grown per day Johnson also tried to measure volumetric growth with respect to linear growth, ignoring time .
In the field of topical antimycotics, this allows prediction of efficacy when the combined characteristics of water solubility, molecular size and minimum inhibitory concentration for antifungal activity are allowed for in a complex calculation . In this manner, drugs such as ciclopirox and amorolfine can be predicted to be of some value. However, more hydrophobic molecules, such as the imidazoles, itraconazole and ketoconazole, are barely able to diffuse into nail, even when it is pretreated with topical keratolytics such as papain, urea and salicylic acid .
This observation is true for adults and children alike, although the likelihood of normal regrowth is greater in children with similar trauma . Longitudinal biopsies of the entire nail unit within the midzone of the nail are said to cause a chronic split if the width of the biopsy exceeds 3 mm . However, there are several factors in addition to the width of the biopsy that can contribute to scarring with longitudinal biopsies and smaller biopsies in the midzone can also give long-term problems.
