The highly comorbid patient with chronic lower extremity wounds is difficult to treat. Areeg A. Abu El Hawa @aabuelhawaprs and her co-authors from the MedStar Georgetown University Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery @medstarplasticsurgery examined the impact of statins on the chronically wounded patient population. She and her coauthors found higher rates of wound held healing in patients taking statins, despite being older and having more comorbidities. These promising findings suggest an association between statins and increased wound healing. HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors: An Adjunct in Wound Healing Areeg A.
