Wound healing is an orchestrated biological process initiated by tissue injury and culminating in restoration of tissue integrity. The end result of the repair process is fibrosis and scar in all organ systems except bone and except for specialized conditions of liver injury. Because surgeons induce tissue injury, a thorough understanding of the wound repair process is fundamental to the practice of surgery; thus, surgeons and wound repair have enjoyed a close relationship from the beginning of…

Wound management and dressings
TLDR
No single treatment is universally effective owing to the multiple molecular and cellular events involved so that a combination of different therapies is required.
Healing of Leg Ulcers
TLDR
Ulcer healing involves physiological changes by which the body replaces and restores function to damaged part of the body, and the healing process passes through different stages which are overlapping with each other.
Treatment of non-healing wounds with autologous bone marrow cells, platelets, fibrin glue and collagen matrix.
TLDR
This study suggests that the combination of the components mentioned can be used safely in order to synergize the effect of chronic wound healing.
The Role of Chemokines in Fibrotic Wound Healing.
TLDR
A thorough understanding of the roles of chemokines in cutaneous wound healing and abnormal scar formation will help provide more effective preventive and therapeutic strategies for dermal fibrosis as well as for other proliferative disorders.
Concepts of Healing in Periodontal Therapy-Part I
Healing of wound remained a mystery for centuries with varying concepts in different frame of space and time. With the advent of latest techniques in molecular biology, this miracle of God has begun
Overcoming the challenge of overgranulation
TLDR
This article will look at the normal wound healing process and seek to identify why the development of ‘overgranulation’ occurs and explain why the use of a steroid-impregnated tape (Haelan Tape®, Typharm) may be an appropriate option for wound healing management in this client group.
Tissue Development, Repair, and Remodeling
Tissue growth as well as repair of tissue injury is controlled by many regulators such as growth factors that both reorganize the cytoskeleton and cell adhesions and trigger the action of
Photochemical Tissue Passivation Prevents Contracture of Full Thickness Wounds in Mice
TLDR
It is hypothesized that PTP treatment would reinforce wounds by blunting the fibrotic response thus limiting contracture, and Photochemical tissue passivation, an established, safe, and user‐friendly treatment modality, crosslinks collagen by a light‐activated process, thus modulating the wound healing response and scarring.
Tissue repair
TLDR
The cells involved in tissue repair, their signaling and proliferation mechanisms, and the function of the extracellular matrix are reviewed, then the actors and script for the three acts of the tissue repair drama are presented.
Platelet biology and the rationale of PRP therapy in chronic wounds
TLDR
An overview of the biology of the thrombocyte is provided to better understand the effects of PRP, which forms a matrix for cells and thus promotes wound healing processes.

Oxygen and wound healing.
TLDR
It is now clear that traditional expectations of repair can often be exceeded by increasing the partial pressure at which oxygen is supplied to wounds by means of revascularization or hyperbaric O2.

From scarless fetal wounds to keloids: Molecular studies in wound healing
TLDR
New findings in scarless fetal repair, angiogenesis in wound healing, and keloid pathogenesis are discussed, highlighting the advances made and also how much remains to be understood.
Hypertrophic scars, keloids, and contractures. The cellular and molecular basis for therapy.
TLDR
An understanding of the cellular and molecular events that are implicated in the development of these fibroproliferative disorders will allow for optimization of wound healing.
Macrophage Involvement in Wound Repair, Remodeling, and Fibrosis
TLDR
Understanding what distinguishes these two outcomes may allow treatment strategies to be developed to ameliorate tissue fibrosis in susceptible or “at-risk” individuals.
WOUND HEALING: THE ROLE OF THE MACROPHAGE AND OTHER IMMUNE CELLS
The tissue macrophage has been shown to play a critical rale in the wound healing process. Through the generation of bioactive substances, macrophages orchestrate the complex processes of cellular
Nutrition in wound healing.
TLDR
Wound healing is an exuberant and complex cascade of cellular and biochemical events that must follow a regulated path for ultimately successful repair to occur and the pharmacologic use of individual nutrients as modulators of wound healing is interest.
The molecular basis of keloid and hypertrophic scar formation.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the wound healing process reveal possible causes for hypertrophic scars and keloids, and this information might assist in the development of efficacious treatment for hypertrophe scar and keLoid formation.
Wound healing considerations in chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
TLDR
Further investigations into the specific wound-healing deficits caused by these agents and the development of interventional therapies will enable us to manipulate the wound milieu in order to accomplish the goal of oncologic cytoreductive therapy without detrimental effects on wound healing.

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.
