A wound is defined as 'a disruption of the normal structure and function of the skin with its associated underlying soft tissue structures' [1]. Wounds might be caused by a variety of mechanisms, including both acute and chronic etiologies. Acute injuries are generally caused by trauma and include abrasions, punctures, crush injuries, thermal injury, gunshots, animal bites, and surgery, among others. However, any mechanism that decreases blood flow within the skin for a prolonged period has the potential to cause ischemic breakdown. Skin perfusion may be impaired due to chronic proximal arterial obstruction (eg, peripheral artery disease), vascular compression (e.g., hematoma, immobility causing focal pressure), or microvascular occlusion and thrombosis (e.g., vasculitis, cholesterol crystals).
