Shapes and angles of The Great Pyramid of Egypt are balanced and renowned for their energy properties. Studies have proved that beneficial effects are found on human health in pyramidal environment. The present study was designed to determine the efficacy of dexamethasone and indomethacin on incision and dead space wound models in rats under the influence of pyramid environment. A wooden pyramid model fabricated locally was used for the study. The parameters chosen were breaking strength of incised wound, breaking strength of granulation tissue, hydroxyproline content and histology. The results showed that the dexamethasone and indomethacin slow down all phases of wound healing and the inhibitory action of dexamethasone on wound healing was stronger than that of indomethacin. Thus pyramid exposure reversed the action of indomethacin more effectively than that of dexamethasone.
