Is Wound Bed Preparation Assessable non invasively?

Abstract

In a recent editorial statement Vincent Falanga addressed the growing relevance of wound bed preparation to current wound management. Falanga, a pioneer of the use of skin substitutes to promote chronic wound healing, touches upon methods of preparing wound beds that offer a staging system. The need for optimising wound beds is not new, although the rising costs of wound management make it compelling to do so. What defines an optimally prepared wound bed? Can we determine this quantitively?
