Summary: The relationship between nutrition and wound healing–-after injury or surgical intervention–-has been recognized for centuries. There is no doubt that adequate carbohydrate, fat, and protein intake is required for healing to take place, but research in the laboratory has suggested that other specific nutritional interventions can have significant beneficial effects on wound healing. Successful translation into the clinical arena, however, has been rare. A review of normal metabolism as… 
The role of nutrition in wound healing: an overview.
TLDR
The phases of wound healing and the associated nutritional requirements required for optimal healing, the clinical signs of malnutrition and screening resources for identifying at-risk groups are reviewed, as well as reviewing current guidelines for managing malnutrition in the inpatient and outpatient setting.

Role of Arginine and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Wound Healing and Infection.
TLDR
This combination of arginine and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in fish oil has been shown to affect outcomes involving wound healing and infections, and can also affect incidence and outcomes in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, organ transplant rejection, and other inflammatory conditions.
SCIENTIFIC ASPECT ON DIET EXPLAINED BY SUSRUTHA IN WOUND HEALING
TLDR

Effect of serum albumin in wound healing and its related complications in surgical patients
TLDR
Serum albumin levels can be considered to be one of best predictors for the wound related complications.

This review provides an up-to-date commentary on the role of nutrition in wound care, with specific emphasis on lower limb wounds, from a historical perspective, and within it both the biomedical approach and current herbalist practices are considered.
Nutrition in wound healing.
The route of nutrition support affects the early phase of wound healing.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the route of nutrition administration can influence wound healing and that the beneficial effect of the enteral feeding route is limited to the early phases of healing.
Wound healing response in surgical patients: Recent food intake is more important than nutritional status
TLDR
Results show that pre‐operative food intake has a greater influence over the wound healing response than absolute losses of protein and fat from body stores and they suggest that the maintenance of a normal food intake up until the time of surgery is of importance in preventing an impairment of the wounds healing response.

TLDR
A role for nutrition therapy in the regulation of wound healing has been predicated on two concepts, but these concepts are not supported by objective data.
Improved wound healing response in surgical patients receiving intravenous nutrition
TLDR
The results show that the wound healing response in surgical patients requiring intravenous nutrition is improved by this treatment, and this improvement is seen after only one week of therapy and before there is an obvious change in nutritional status.

Correlation of immune and nutritional status with wound complications in patients undergoing vascular operations.
TLDR
The detection and subsequent reversal of immunoincompetence through the use of enteral or parenteral alimentation should provide a significant reduction in operative morbidity and mortality.
Metabolic effects of total parenteral nutrition.
TLDR
The objective of nutritional support in the critically ill patient is to restore and maintain adequate nutritional status in the face of illness and inade­ quate oral nutrition.
THE MECHANISM OF DELAYED WOUND HEALING IN THE PRESENCE OF HYPOPROTEINEMIA
TLDR
During the past decade protein deficiency has been shown to have an important influence on many of the problems of clinical surgery and diets high in protein as well as carbohydrate were recommended in the treatment of patients with extensive hepatic disease.
