Abstract
This book introduces readers to the latest developments regarding pressure injury wounds, diabetic wounds, and negative pressure wound therapy. The first part exclusively deals with wounds from pressure ulcers, describing in detail their prevention, classification, and treatment. In turn, chapters addressing diabetic wounds form the middle part of the book. Here, the authors provide guidance on the medication and treatment (e.g. stem cells, laser) of patients suffering from this disease. The book’s last part, which focuses on negative pressure wound therapy, addresses all major aspects of this approach, reflecting the latest research. Illustrated with a wealth of high-quality pictures throughout, the book offers a unique resource for both beginners and experienced plastic surgeons.
