The International Journal of Lower Extremity Wounds concentrates on in-depth multidisciplinary reviews of evidence-based diagnostic techniques and methods, disease and patient management, and surgical and medical therapeutics for lower extremity wounds such as burns, stomas, ulcers, fistulas, and traumatic wounds.

The journal emphasizes the science and practice of lower extremity wound care from major theoretical advances to tested clinical practice. Such care includes soft tissue reconstruction, musculoskeletal surgery, neurologic depreciation, prosthetics, and the legal and economic implications of wound management. The journal also offers evaluations of assessment and monitoring tools, dressings, gels, cleansers, pressure management, footwear/orthotics, casting, and bioengineered skin.

  • Preventing and healing wounds
  • Early signs of tissue breakdown
  • Infection control
  • Debridement of wounds
  • Objective assessment
  • Significance of the size, color, and depth of wounds
  • Skin care management
  • Difficult-to-heal wounds due to a number of conditions which compromise circulation
