Review of recent research on biomedical applications of electrospun polymer nanofibers for improved wound healing

Written by Nanomedicine

Review by Alaa J Hassiba et al. (Qatar University, Doha, Qatar) providing an overview of recent studies on the physiology of wound healing and various wound dressing materials made of nanofibers fabricated using the electrospinning technique.

Various materials have been used to cover wounds to prevent contamination and therefore provide an appropriate environment for wound healing. This Review by Alaa J Hassiba, Mohamed E El Zowalaty, Gheyath K Nasrallah, Thomas J Webster, Adriaan S Luyt, Aboubakr M Abdullah and Ahmed A Elzatahry presents and discusses recent studies on the electrospinning technique for developing improved wound dressings made of nanofibers and provides an overview on the physiology of wound healing.
