desapareciendo el dolor de reposo y con cicatrización ****en primera intención.
It can only be 'at the first attempt', can't it, but I've never seen this sue before....
By teh way, just to confirm - English would say 'present WITH' for presentar, right?
Healing by first intention -- Every surgeon who closes a wound would like it to heal by primary union or first intention, with minimal edema and no local infection or serious discharge. An incision that heals by first intention does so in a minimum amount of time, with no separation of the wound edges, and with minimal scar formation.

|Just as well I didn't let that one go! Ta a million - I found this explanation (for the benefit of the other contributors, as well as my own):|
.........healing will be optimum and should occur by “first intention healing”. This means that the wound will be healed together within 2 weeks or at the time of suture (stitch) removal. If a laceration is treated and sutured within 6-8 hours, there is still a very good chance of getting first intention healing.....Older wounds or wounds with a lot of contamination and/or tissue damage may not heal well with suturing and will have a tendency to dehisce (pull apart and re-open). These usually will still heal, by what’s termed second intention healing, but will take longer to heal. With second intention healing, the wound must heal from the inside out- by filling in first with granulation tissue and then epithelializing (skin cells slowly growing over).
