Chronic wound causes
We expect our bodies to heal quickly and routinely, but, in reality, healing is a very complicated process. Without proper treatment, chronic wounds can become critically infected or gangrenous and may require amputation. These difficult-to-heal wounds can result from various causes:
- Arterial or venous ulcers
- Chemical burns
- Circulatory conditions
- Collagen vascular disease
- Poor diabetes management
- Heart failure
- Peripheral vascular disease
- Pressure sores
- Surgical site breakdown
- Spinal injury
- Traumatic injury
