What is a Non-Healing Surgical Wound?
The majority of surgical wounds heal relatively quickly. However, non-healing or slow-healing surgical wounds can occasionally continue to cause pain and discomfort well after the initial surgery; when an incision-related wound does not heal properly. This is usually due to infection – a rare but potentially fatal complication. The larger the incision, the greater the chance of developing an non-healing surgical wound. Additionally, large body size and medical conditions that impair the body's ability to heal, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, may contribute to non-healing surgical wounds. Non-healing surgical wounds pose a risk for post-surgical complications such as infection or tissue damage and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as symptoms occurs to reduce long term damage.
