Abstract

The basic pathophysiological problems of disorders in chronic wound healing and the use of extremely low frequency magnetic fields, as a complement factor in the therapy are presented in the article. Extremely low frequency magnetic fields stimulate the activity of regeneration processes in chronic wounds and delay the tissues’ destruction. They inhibit the destabilisation of cellular membranes and lipid peroxidation. Magnetotherapy can be useful and practical supplement in the treatment of chronic wounds with minimal contraindication, very often used in general surgery, orthopedics, dermatology and rehabilitation.
