Wound dressing, semi-permeable foam dressing, hydrogel, bioactive wound dressing


Wound healing process is dynamic and complex, which depends on the synergic effect of a different cells, enzymes, cytokines and growth factors. Deregulation in the healing process can result in the development of non-healing chronic ulcer. Together with the technological advancement, over 3,000 types of wound healing produces have been developed for the treatment of various types of wounds. All currently existing wound treatment materials have their respective advantages and limitations and in order to achieve fast wound healing, it is necessary to select the appropriate method. In this article, we examine the effects of different types of wound dressing materials on the wound healing process.
