Due to its complexity, a healthy human body is able to close and heal minor wounds within a few days. Patients suffering from circulatory disorders or diabetes mellitus often experience that wounds close very slowly or not at all, which is why we speak of chronic wounds. These are not only painful and protracted, but also require special, time-intensive treatment by trained nursing staff. Despite intensive efforts, however, wound closure often remains unsuccessful.
A new method developed in cooperation between the German Society for Tissue Transplantation and surgeons from the Rhine-Maas Hospitals focuses on treatment using amniotic membranes.
