Abstract

Achieving closure in a chronic wound requires provision of adequate oxygen delivery to the tissue, adequate protein and other nutritional factors, a moist environment, an appropriate inflammatory milieu, dèbridement, and correction of contributing medical diagnoses. In some patients, these conditions are achieved easily, whereas in others, greater effort is required. Adjunctive treatments, including HBO2, growth factors, skin substitutes, and negative-pressure wound therapy (eg, V.A.C.) can provide the proper conditions for healing in appropriately selected patients.
