Abstract

Wound repair and regeneration is a highly complex combination of matrix destruction and reorganization. While major hurdles remain, advances over the past generation have improved the clinician's armamentarium in the medical and surgical management of this problem. The purpose of this manuscript is to review the current literature regarding the pragmatic use of three of the most commonly employed advanced therapies; namely, bioengineered tissue, negative pressure wound therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy with a focus on the near-term future of wound healing, including stem cell therapy.
