Closing the wounds that occur on the skin that are difficult to heal is the subject of plastic surgery. Since deep and wide wounds will be very difficult to close on their own, these wounds need to be properly cared for and closed with some surgeries. Cleaning and healing of health-impaired tissues begins with wound care. Today, there are many different dressing materials and wound care methods specific to wounds. Plastic surgeons will guide you through the stages of handling these wounds, which dressing method should be selected and cleaning the wound with surgery and then closing it with surgery.
WHAT METHODS ARE USED IN WOUND CARE?The first treatment of wound care is the removal of dead tissues from the wound, i.e. the Debridement process. After the dead tissues are removed from the wound, a wound care method is selected in accordance with what the remaining tissue is and its quality. There is a wide range of wound care methods ranging from simple dressing methods to technological biomaterials, complex devices such as vacuum closure therapy, hyperbaric oxygen treatments and stem cell treatments. Since you will be confused by the large variety of these products, it is advisable to trust and follow the method that your doctor has chosen for you.
WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE PRESSURE WOUND?
Pressure sores are caused by impaired circulation of the skin due to the constant pressure applied to the same area in people whose mobility has disappeared. After advanced neurological disorders, past strokes, temporary blackouts, loss of sensation and some surgeries, pressure exposure may occur in some areas due to inappropriate plaster or care. Pressure wounds are usually observed in the area of skin between the bone protrusions and the floor. Pressure wounds start with deep tissues. Therefore, wounds that look very small from the outside may be much larger in width than previously estimated.
