The wound healing process is a complex process involving the synchronization of molecular and biochemical events at a cellular level. If there is malfunction, or interruption in any of the stages of wound healing, this can result in delayed wound healing. When faced with a non-healing wound it is useful to look at all the factors that may be related to this delayed healing and see if any need to be addressed in order to reactivate the wound healing process.
