In recent years, wound care has gained increasing recognition as a distinct medical specialty. An understanding of the complex mechanisms in wound healing facilitates efficient assessment and treatment of patients with wounds. Skin necrosis can be considered the starting point in the entire process of wound healing.
This book is the first to discuss skin necrosis as a symptom related to a large series of pathologies. The richly illustrated volume provides therapeutic strategies and treatment algorithms for different clinical contexts. Each chapter is written by renowned specialists in their respected fields and contains detailed case vignettes and key take-home messages.
Taking into account the highly interdisciplinary and multi-professional aspect of wound management, Skin Necrosis will prove an invaluable resource for wound care practitioners and health care professionals across the fields of surgery, dermatology, internal medicine, and nursing.
