This multiauthored textbook principally covers the variety of measurement systems that are available for wound-healing studies. The first chapter discusses the clinical aspects of lower limb ulceration, and the rest of the book is devoted to diagnostic and clinical research measurement procedures that can be performed on the wound-healing population. These include methods for studying pressures in the diabetic foot, measures of blood flow in patients with leg ulcers, transcutaneous oxygen tension, morphometry and biochemical measurements in wound fluid, and tissue biopsies.
