Presenters: Dr. Greg Schultz and Dr. Marcelo Liberato -

Non-healing wounds have become a major worldwide healthcare burden. The impact of biofilms on chronic wound infection is well established but despite increased understanding of the underlying mechanism of biofilm formation in chronic wounds, we still have a lot to learn about biofilm diagnosis in chronic wounds. In this webinar Dr. Gregory Schultz will talk about antimicrobial challenges in chronic wounds with a special emphasis on the emerging role of biofilms. This will be followed by Dr. Marcelo Liberato presenting case studies were he shows his treatment strategy of patients with Venous Leg Ulcers.
