Asia-Pacific Markets for Wound and Tissue Management 2011 – MedSuite
Wound and tissue management includes devices that treat wounds to the skin, dermal layer and adjacent subcutaneous tissues, as well as devices that manage trauma to tissue and blood vessels during surgery. Wound management devices treat external wounds, while dressings and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) aid the bodys innate ability to heal skin wounds, surgical wounds and chronic wounds. Devices used for tissue management help to stop bleeding, close surgical incisions and prevent scarring and adhesion of internal tissue. Wound closure devices hold tissue together long enough for the body to develop scar tissue.
