Abstract: Extremity ulcers are amongst the most common surgical presentations in outpatient departments in India, cutting across all strata of society and all regions of India. They are associated with significant morbidity, and sometimes require major amputations, and may occasionally result in mortality as well. It is therefore not unusual that many studies have been conducted in recent times to discover newer methods of local management of extremity ulcers. Many such methods, viz. Vacuum assisted closure, which use the principles of wound healing, are now being employed with good success rates. Nevertheless, many of these methods have the disadvantage of higher costs, which the common man is unable to afford, making it out of reach of those desperately in need of adequate and thorough local management of ulcers. Hence, this prospective, interventional study, which employs the use of topical hyaluronic acid on wound healing was carried out at a tertiary care hospital in southern India, to determine its role in wound healing.
