Treating osteomyelitis: Nonsurgical interventions for complex wounds

from Wound Source

How might a patient with a potential osteomyelitis wound present to the clinic? The patient may present with a nonhealing wound or recurrent wound that closes and then re-opens. The wound may also manifest with recurrent infection and edema. Any wound with exposed or palpable bone that has been open for greater than six weeks should raise suspicions of osteomyelitis, as should any recurrent or non-healing wound over areas where surgical hardware has been previously placed. more
