The impact of infection on acute wound healing is multifaceted, resulting in disruption
to every stage of wound healing. At present, there are significant challenges associated
with the diagnosis and treatment of wound infection, with the inappropriate use of
antimicrobial dressings potentially resulting in poorer wound healing. The relative
risks of contamination of high quantities of bacteria and of virulent species is yet to
be fully elucidate. However the important symbiotic relationship between bacteria
and host immunity is well recognised. The consequences of acute wound infection
for patients may include surgical wound dehiscence, pain, prolonged hospital stays
and psychological stress, which may in themselves become detrimental to wound
healing. This article presents an overview of the impact of infection on acute wound
healing considering each of the four stages involved.
