The connection between arterial disease and chronic wounds

from The Journal News

The human body is a complex system, one that relies on a vast network of blood vessels to transport vital nutrients and oxygen to each cell. There can be times when that transport system hits a blockage, such as when fatty deposits (plaque) accumulate on the arterial walls, causing a narrowing of the vessels and reduced blood flow. This can have potentially serious health implications. "A reduction of the flow of these nutrients and oxygen can create poor wound healing and the development of chronic wounds," explains Dr. John Ko, wound and hyperbaric medicine specialist at New York-Presbyterian/Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor. more
