Tissue healing is an intricate process whereby tissue repairs itself after an injury. There are many types of tissue injuries (wounds) differing in cause, size and location. In all cases, the goal is the same: to achieve pain-free healing as fast as possible with the highest possible quality of replacement tissue.
Advanced, active wound management aims to stimulate the biological processes involved in wound healing. It can remove barriers to normal healing characteristic of various types of wounds. Despite considerable progress in this field, such as the introduction of new materials supporting healing, there remain many areas where results do not meet patients’ needs or expectations.
