Abstract

Standardized outcome measurement in wound healing has been an elusive goal. Whilst research into wound healing science and technology continues to progress rapidly, the lack of a uniform outcome assessment is making comparative analysis of results difficult. This paper seeks to outline the reported clinical, physiological, and histological outcomes that have been utilized in the literature. A minimal data set base for wound outcome evaluation is also established to be validated by future multivariate analysis of patient data.
