Résumé :

Clinical guidebook which instructs the reader how to diagnose and treat wounds and cutaneous ulcers. This book introduces an algorithmic approach for the identification of ulcer etiology, together with step-by-step flow charts for therapy. It is not only written by experts, but the content of each of the chapters has been peer-reviewed. This work offers helpful support to all physicians who treat acute and chronic cutaneous wounds such as dermatologists, general practitioners and family physicians, plastic and general surgeons, as well as orthopedic and vascular surgeons. Further, it will also be of assistance for physicians from other branches, such as diabetologists, internists, and geriatricians, who often encounter the need to treat chronic wounds.
