Combatting biofilm: a targeted approach to a range of wounds
AbstractChronic wounds are often recalcitrant and resistant to treatment. The background diseases or injuries associated with chronic wounds, for example venous insufficiency, diabetes or the pathology underlying pressure ulcers, have in the past been used to explain the non-healing and chronic characteristics of these wounds. Thus, managing poor perfusion, nutrition and blood glucose control and avoiding repetitive pressure have been, and remain, priorities in the overall treatment of chronic wounds.
