Adjunctive Debridement with Hypochlorous Acid Leads to a Healing Trajectory of Complex Wounds in Children

Abstract

Introduction
Complex wounds such as deep pressure ulcers, epidermolysis bullosa, sternal wounds following cardiac surgery, and wounds in compromised patients require multiple modalities to advance each wound to a healing trajectory.

Problem
Surgical correction of the wound with techniques such as pedicled or free flaps are often not possible because of the overall condition of the patient. Surgical debridement may be contraindicated in the most severely ill patients.
