A working knowledge of wound healing is essential in modern clinical practice. This knowledge draws on the expertise of a wide range of specialists - general and plastic surgeons, dermatologists, geriatricians, nurses, microbiologists, pathologists, biologists, and biochemists. This book presents a full appraisal of accepted knowledge in wound management, drawing on the expertise of leading specialists in all the fields concerned. It is extensively illustrated, and includes essential, practical advice. Throughout, the emphasis is on the control of healing, andparticularly, the recognition of adverse factors.
