The healing of diabetic and venous insufficiency ulcerations, as well as wounds related to ischaemia or pressure, remains problematic for the practicing clinician. In an effort to promote healing, wound treatment protocols often consist of serial debridement, application of a simple or advanced wound-healing product, a dressing, and offloading (total contact casting or pressure reducing shoe), compression and revascularisation, when indicated. Additional risk factors that should also be modified and addressed, include tobacco use, nutrition, glucose control, and/or lower extremity water retention.
