Patients often have multiple medical and surgical issues that result in difficult-to-close pressure ulcers, surgical wounds and wounds as a result of acute or chronic illnesses. 

A pressure sore or injury (also called pressure ulcer, decubitus ulcer, decubiti (plural), bedsore or skin breakdown) is an area of the skin or underlying tissue (muscle, bone) that is damaged due to loss of blood flow to the area.
