The aging of the population and continued advances in biotechnology drive the wound care industry. The aging world population created increased demand for all types of surgical intervention, particularly cardiovascular, orthopedic, urological and dermatological procedures.
The emerging generation of wound care products and technologies are well-positioned to capitalize on this growth. Besides the always-improving synthetic dressing materials, newer technologies in wound treatment include the xenogeneic tissue scaffold, bilayered human dermal substitutes, recombinant growth factors, endoscopic subfascial ligation of venous perforators, and endovascular arterial repair techniques. New wound care products and devices are entering the market with lightening speed, all striving for the best clinical outcomes.
