A Wound that Does Not Heal: Frost & Sullivan Reveals the Impact of Chronic Ulcers on the European Healthcare System
Date:8/25/2009

LONDON, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Chronic wounds cause immense suffering, healthcare expenditure, and disability for millions of patients - and make the wound care market a billion dollar market. Chronic ulcers take a prolonged duration to heal, especially when appropriate treatment is not provided. Market players in the wound management market need to thoroughly examine a wound and its impact on the patient, in order to be able to develop more advanced wound management products.

"The focus must lie on the wound, just as much as on the product development," says Senior Research Analyst Sowmya Srinath from Frost & Sullivan.

For the better understanding of chronic diseases and those conditions causing the ulcers, the Healthcare Group at Frost & Sullivan will present its latest findings on Chronic Ulcers and their impact on the European healthcare market in its upcoming 2009 Quarterly Analyst Briefing to be held on Tuesday, 1st September 2009, at 2 p.m. GMT.

The briefing will focus on the three most common chronic wounds, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and venous leg ulcers, their causative factors and their impact on the European healthcare system.

This teleconference is a must for wound care manufacturers, distributors, as well as hospital associations by discussing the prevalence and the developments with regard to the causative factors of various types of ulcers and their impact on the wound care market.

"With the United Nations, WHO and other such organizations coming forward with initiatives to reduce the incidence of chronic diseases, the wounds scenario is expected to improve further," concludes Sowmya Srinath.

Frost & Sullivan will hold this conference call at 2 p.m. GMT on Tuesday, 1st September 2009, which will demonstrate the potential of chronic ulcers for the wound care market.
