Hydrogels for Wound Healing

Sabu Thomas

Hydrogels for Wound Healing provides a comprehensive review of the materials, properties, mechanism of action and application of engineered hydrogels in wound treatment. This book thoroughly covers all aspects of hydrogels in wound healing, reviewing a range of key materials and composites - including metal oxides and polymer composites - as well as their design, synthesis, and core properties. The book explores various types of wound healing hydrogels, such as 3D-printed, injectable, sprayable, tunable, and more. Toxicity, clinical and commercial aspects are detailed, providing holistic coverage for those interested in designing and applying these hydrogels in research and clinical settings.

This comprehensive resource is a complete reference for materials scientists, biomedical engineers, biomedical scientists and clinicians with an interest in novel wound healing approaches.
