Wounds or ulcers result from damage to the body's surfaces such as skin and mucous membranes. Once damaged, our body starts the repair process which, under normal conditions, is an organised process involving multiple steps, tissues, cells and their products. However, failure of the repair process to occur in a synchronised and timely manner leads to delayed healing. Wounds failing to heal or progress by 8 weeks are usually categorised as chronic wounds. Non-healing chronic wounds are challenging because, with the passage of time, they can affect a patient's health, their quality of life, their ability to work and subsequently their finances. Wounds that fail to heal are a significant burden on health system budgets worldwide. Current routine management of wounds includes cleaning, debridement, applying wound dressings, compression bandages and antibiotics. However, non-healing wounds that fail to respond to these measures require advanced clinical methods, some of which have encouraging results. This review article discusses these advanced modalities, with a specific focus on electrical stimulation (ES) as an example of an emerging method being developed for the treatment of chronic wounds.
