New Rochelle, NY, February 1, 2012—A variety of innovative products and technologies that promote healing of difficult, painful, and potentially life-threatening acute and chronic wounds are described in the premier issue of Advances in Wound Care, a bimonthly online publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. and an Official Journal of the Wound Healing Society. The issue is available free online.
Several Technology Reports highlight products such as a negative pressure device that delivers a continuous subatmospheric pressure level to the wound bed to promote healing. Advanced dressings described in the reports can absorb fluid produced by the wound, cushion the surrounding area, and provide continuous cleansing to accelerate healing, reduce pain, and control swelling. Also featured are biological therapies that may include the delivery of growth factors, bioengineered cells, or components of the patient’s own cells to stimulate the healing process.
“Thanks to the Wound Healing Society, Advances in Wound Care is a peer-reviewed forum where the essence of latest advances in science contributed by world-experts meets practical solutions in wound care,” says Editor-in-Chief Chandan K. Sen, PhD, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Comprehensive Wound Center at The Ohio State University Medical Center.
Advances in Wound Care is a bimonthly online journal that reports the latest scientific discoveries, translational research, and clinical developments in acute and chronic wound care. Each issue provides a digest of the latest research findings, innovative wound care strategies, industry product pipeline, and developments in biomaterials and skin and tissue regeneration to optimize patient outcomes. The broad scope of applications covered includes limb salvage, chronic ulcers, burns, trauma, blast injuries, surgical repair, skin bioengineering, dressings, anti-scar strategies, diabetic ulcers, ostomy, bedsores, biofilms, and military wound care. Complete tables of content and a sample issue may be viewed online.
