Abstract

ABSTRACT: Nonhealing wounds (stalled, healable) challenge affected individuals, wound clinicians, and society. Nonhealing may result despite local factors being corrected. The interplay between tissue degradation, increased inflammatory response, and abundant protease activity is a challenging quandary. A modified Delphi process was utilized to investigate a protease activity test and practice implications.
