Chronic wounds such as leg ulcers and pressure sores are a burden on resources and patients who have to live with them. Surveys of prevalence and incidence attempt to clarify the problem. However, it is vital that researchers give appropriate definitions and measurements, take case mix into account and compare like with like when publishing their findings.
