Short Description : ADVANCED WOUND REPAIR THERAPIES – Wound repair is an important and lucrative sector of the medical industry. Consequently significant and increasingly sophisticated biomaterials and strategies are continuously being developed. Advanced Wound Repair Therapies will provide readers with up-to-date information on fundamental, emerging and cutting-edge biomaterials concerned with healing internal and external surgical and traumatic wounds. Part 1 provides readers with an introduction to chronic wounds. Part 2 analyzes therapies for chronic wounds. Chapters in Part 3 discuss molecular therapies for chronic wounds whilst Part 4 reviews biologically-derived and cell-based therapies for chronic wounds. The final group of chapters cover physical stimulation therapies for chronic wounds.
