The Wound Care Center submits research articles only to peer-reviewed journals. The reason we write in peer-reviewed journals is to do our part in solving the horrendous problem of chronic wounds. Chronic wounds are now a crisis for the healthcare system and are growing at double-digit rates. Chronic wounds are not benign. Over 50,000 people each year die from diabetic foot ulcers and possibly 50,000 people die from decubitus ulcers, as well. Postoperative surgical wounds claim the lives of many people. Chronic wounds produce significant suffering, financial and emotional cost, and death to Americans at almost the same level as cancer. That is why it is important to get the word out that chronic wounds are best viewed as chronic infections of the skin, and, by suppressing the infection of the skin, chronic wounds can be healed at a much higher rate.
