Abstract
Chronic wounds are a major healthcare problem, especially among the elderly and patients with diabetes mellitus, and involve huge economic costs in the healthcare systems.

Antibacterial polyurethane foams have been prepared for the treatment of cutaneous infections by using different strategies, such as the incorporation o...
