Soft and Hard Tissue Repair: Biological and Clinical Aspects

General surgeons have been strangely fatalistic about wound healing ever since Paré made his famous passive suggestion. Dr Hunt has been an exception to this generalization and has become a national repository for interest in wound healing. For two decades he has been trying to prod soft-tissue wounds into action and studying why they remain so docile for several days after trauma. This book is a collection of 31 papers given at a May 1983 conference by 80 authors on soft-tissue and bone healing. Sponsored by Johnson & Johnson Products, Inc, New Brunswick, NJ, it was organized by Hunt not only to review the phenomenon of wound healing in light of modern advances, but to determine whether such new knowledge can over-come wound lethargy.

The chapters vary from French clinicians touting amniotic membrane coverage of venous stasis ulcers to the most erudite basic scientific descriptions of the complexities of lymphokines
