AbstractI recently participated in a symposium/workshop entitled Wound Care striving for the balance where I delivered a lecture with the same title. The topic related to the balance of wound preparers (MMPs) and the wound finishers (growth factors). Much of that talk is included in the first article in this edition of WHSA entitled Deconstructing the Chronic Wound. In that same vein WHSA strives to maintain a balance between those experienced in the field of wound healing and those that have just been introduced to it. I believe this edition accomplishes that balance.
