Diabetic wound is a common and disabling condition which leads to amputation, the chances of recurrent wound and higher mortality rate. The disability and morbidity cause a significant burden for the patients, families and societies.
Tissue necrosis in diabetic wound is the common reason for hospital admission, which tends to be prolonged and may end up in amputation. In patients with diabetic wound, the prolonged use of systemic antibiotic leads to antibiotic resistance, possible interference with systemic illness and the involvement of multibacteria.
Diabetic wound is not governed by a single factor for healing of the wound. It is multi-factorial and has different healing processes which involve cascades of interacting phases of haemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, epithelisation and scar maturation.

According to Dr Sarrawanan and Dr Genesalingam, wound healing is an innate mechanism of action that works reliably most of the time. A key feature of wound healing is step-by-step repair of the lost extra cellular matrix (ECM) that forms the largest component of the dermal skin layer. But in some cases, certain disorders or physiological insult disturbs the wound healing process.
