Impaired wound healing is the result of the interplay between patient-related factors, wound-related factors, skill and knowledge of the healthcare professional and resources and treatment-related factors. The study of wound-related factors learns us that healing is a very complex biologic process. Both ‘seed’ (differentiated and stem cells) and ‘soil’ (e.g. cytokines/chemokines, growth factors, matrix components) are essential for effective wound healing. Tissue engineering for chronic wounds h...
