The Wound Healing Continuum — From Chronic to Acute

Speaker: Matthew Regulski, DPM

Lower extremity wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous ulcers, are more prone to issues of chronicity and recurrence due to factors such as peripheral arterial disease, diabetes, and increased infection rates. Wound care clinicians are familiar with the standard of care in wound management including good wound bed preparation and moisture management, but sometimes, especially in complex lower extremity wounds, these strategies aren’t enough to achieve wound closure.

Therapeutic Interventions for Complex, Chronic Wounds

This useful guide to the treatment of complex, chronic wounds first discusses risk factors that predispose patients to the development of these wounds, as well as comorbidities and other conditions that complicate healing. The guide then describes the latest evidence-based advanced interventions for the treatment of complex, chronic wounds.

How Much Do You Know Complex Wounds?

Take our 10-question quiz to find out.

Terms to Know: Complex Wound Management

Angiogenesis: The complex process in which the growth of normal, stable, and functional vessels is critically dependent on the coordinated interplay in space and time of different cell types and growth factors. This process involves the forming of new blood vessels from preexisting vessels by invading the wound clot to organize in a microvascular network throughout granulation tissue.

Autologous cell therapy: A therapeutic intervention that uses an individual’s cells, which are cultured and expanded outside of the body and reintroduced into the donor as a bioengineered skin substitute to aid in wound closure.

Immunomodulation: Therapeutic interventions aimed at modifying the immune response. Healing in chronic and complex wounds can be enhanced with immunomodulating agents.
