This session will provide the latest information regarding the cellular, biochemical and molecular factors responsible for the healing of acute, normal wounds. This information will be contrasted to the complex, harsh microenvironment found in chronic, non-healing ulcers. Particular attention will be focused on the underlying causes of delayed healing such as the microbiome, biofilm, excessive proteases and chronic inflammation. Clinical strategies needed to overcome the underlying mechanisms associated with pathologic delayed healing will be highlighted.
