This chapter discusses the physiology of wounds and their management. The classification of wounds and appropriate dressing selection for successful wound management are outlined. High-tech wound dressings and the current state-of-the-art novel dressings, such as odour adsorbent and antimicrobial dressings, are critically reviewed. The role of compression therapy in the treatment and prevention of venous leg ulceration is discussed. The merits and limitations of the current compression therapy regime, and research into the development of novel orthopaedic padding and compression bandages, are highlighted.
