Wounds. 2022 Feb; 34(2):E13-E16.
PMID: 35801967.


Nonhealing ulcers are difficult to manage because they deviate from the normal wound healing process. The standard treatment with saline dressings is not efficient in treating patients with such wounds; advanced wound care dressings are needed. Chitosan-based advanced wound dressings are gaining popularity because of their unique characteristics, such as absorbency, conformability, and pain alleviation at the wound bed. A case of an ulcer that developed after cellulitis and healed with application of a chitosan-based dressing is presented.
