A wound is an injury to an organ’s biological form and function, such as the skin, produced by a simple or significant rupture in the organ’s structure. Because a slow and ineffective repair might result in significant harm, full lesion healing necessitates rapid recovery of balanced physiological circumstances. The characteristics of the wound-healing mechanism can be used to classify wounds. A surface wound is a skin lesion that only affects the skin's epidermis. When the subcutaneous fat or underlying structures, such as blood arteries, sebaceous glands, and hair follicles, are compromised, full-thickness wounds develop. "Complex injuries" are wounds that are difficult to heal and cause substantial loss of skin, hair, and tissue. (Veins feeding the leg). The human body's intricate physiological process of wound healing involves coordinated sequential activation of many different cell types and signaling pathways. Chronic wounds and burns significantly lower patients' quality of life because they are linked to increased physical discomfort and socioeconomic issues. As a result, improving the long-term viability of national health systems requires great interest and the development of innovative and more affordable technologies and medicines.
