About these proceedings


This book is the fruit of lectures given during the symposium "Proteolytic Enzymes and Wound Healing" at the Joint Meet­ ing of the Wound Healing Society and the European Tissue Repair Society held in Amsterdam, August 22-25, 1993. Look­ ing back, we can conclude with satisfaction that the meeting was a great success, with regard to both the number of partici­ pants and the scientific level. Enormous progress is being made in the field of wound heal­ ing and tissue repair. It was therefore of prime importance that one fundamental aspect in the healing of chronic wound- the proteolytic debridement of tissue necrosis - be given thorough attention during the above-mentioned symposium. Renowned authors dealt with the various aspects of proteoly­ tic enzymes and wound healing, so that a unique overview was given. The lectures were written up and arranged into the various chapters of this book, which should provide the reader with a practical guide in understanding and treating necrotic wounds.
