Wound management in reptiles

Mark A. Mitchell, Orlando Diaz-Figueroa

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Our understanding into the healing response of reptile wounds is in its infancy. To date, many of the methods we have used have been adopted from human, mammalian, or avian species, with varying success. Future research should focus on the development of methods to improve our management of contaminated wounds, minimize the negative inflammatory responses occurring in a wound, and shorten wound-healing time.
