PHASES OF WOUND HEALINGThe phases of wound healing include inflammation, repair and remodelling.Inflammatory Phase: Inflammation is the body’s initial vascular and cellular response to injury. It helps protect against foreign materialsand invaders, removes dead tissues and sets the stage for tissue repair. The inflammatory processes are initiated by release ofchemicals from damaged cells and tissues.For a few minutes after an acute injury, the blood vessels in the area constrict to limit haemorrhage. This transient period ofvasoconstriction is quickly followed by dilation of the blood vessels in the area. Vasodilatation allows blood to flow into the wound andclot. The surface of blood clots exposed externally often dehydrates to form a scab which serves as an initial protective covering over thewound.Blood in the dilated vessels carries antibodies, nutrients and white blood cells into the damaged area. The antibodies help provide a firstline of defence against micro organisms. The nutrients are needed to “fuel” the cleanup and repair processes. The white blood cells,principally neutrophils and monocytes, begin the cleanup process by breaking down and removing foreign material, dead cells, bacteriaand tissue debris.Repair Phase: The processes of repair which consist of capillary infiltration, fibroblast proliferation and epithelial regeneration, beginalmost immediately after injury and proceed as rapidly as the inflammatory mechanisms clean up the wound. In uncomplicated wounds,the repair phase is usually in full swing by about 3-5 days after the initial injury.Capillaries begin growing into the damaged area initially as blind-ended “buds” off the healthy, undamaged vessels surrounding thewound. The buds join together to form intact capillaries. The developing capillary network further increases the blood supply to the healingarea.With enhanced blood supply to the wound, fibroblasts proliferate and begin producing collagen fibres. These fibres make up the scartissue that begins giving the wound some strength.The soft bright red tissue formed by the proliferating fibroblasts and capillaries is termed granulation tissue. A “bed” of granulation tissuemust form in a skin wound before epithelium can regenerate to cover the surface of the wound.Remodelling Phase: The remodelling phase is the final stage of wound healing. It primarily involves rearrangement of the collagen fibresin the scar to increase the strength of the healed wound. This phase begins 4 weeks after the initial injury in an uncomplicated wound,when all of the collagen fibres have been formed and may continue for years. There is little or no change in the outward appearance of awound during this phase.TYPES OF WOUND HEALINGFirst-intention Healing: In a wound undergoing first-intention healing, there is minimal tissue damage and minimal microbialcontamination, and the skin edges are opposed (held together), usually by sutures. Healing generally proceeds smoothly, with minimalscar tissue formation. Most surgical wounds heal by first intention.Second Intention Healing: A wound that is healing by second intention usually has had significant tissue damage and loss.Contamination may be extensive and the wound is left to heal open. In addition to the wound healing mechanisms described above,wound contraction helps reduce the size of an open wound as it heals. Once a granulation tissue bed forms, the wound usually begins tocontract by movement of the whole thickness of the surrounding skin toward the centre of the wound. This greatly decreases the amountof time necessary for the wound to close, though in some cases it may cause deformity or restrict movement if the skin is tightly adheredto the underlying structures or the wound is over a joint.Third-Intention Healing: A wound that is healing by third intention is allowed to heal open until a granulation tissue bed forms, then it issutured closed.
