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.

Editorial Reviews

This is the best attempt so far to present the current knowledge of the biochemical and cellular events of wound healing, and to relate those events to the practical techniques of treating wounds of different types...contains much valuable information and should do well
