Complex Wounds

Reconstructive surgery may be necessary to close complex wounds. Complex wounds may involve deficits of skin, soft tissue, and bone. Medical factors that may delay normal wound healing include diabetes, malnutrition, neurologic disorders, tobacco use, radiation damage, and immunosuppression. The surgical options for closing complex wounds include skin grafts, tissue flaps, and free tissue transfer.
