Description

The International Journal of Lower Extremity Wounds concentrates on in-depth multidisciplinary reviews of evidence-based diagnostic techniques and methods, disease and patient management, and surgical and medical therapeutics for lower extremity wounds such as burns, stomas, ulcers, fistulas, and traumatic wounds.

The journal emphasizes the science and practice of lower extremity wound care from major theoretical advances to tested clinical practice. Such care includes soft tissue reconstruction, musculoskeletal surgery, neurologic depreciation, prosthetics, and the legal and economic implications of wound management.
