EWMA 2020: Technologies in Wound Healing


The main objective of this key session is to allow discussing technologies in wound healing from different perspectives.  A gene therapy approach to treat epidermolysis bullosa will be presented aiming to discuss the challenges that this type of technology has to face up to reach patients.  New devices used in wound management will also be presented to highlight advantages or potential limitations in specific wounds and in specific procedures. Also the challenges in obtaining reliable data on new technologies will be discussed. Ultimately, the potential of 3D printing for skin wound healing will be presented aiming to identify target clinical niches.
