saucerization

; revivication wound (ulcer) edge debridement back to healthy bleeding tissue, to remove devitalized tissue, and promote drainage, epithelialization and healing (see Table 1)
Table 1: Phases in the progression of an ulcer to healing
Ulcer phaseCharacteristicsComment
Active phaseWound dimensions increase (undermined wound edges)
Exudation
Formation of slough
Periwound oedema and induration of edges
Dissolution and degradation of devitalized tissue ± infection
Macrophage and enzyme activity
Accumulation of degraded tissue and dead macrophages
Chronic, non-resolving inflammation ± collagen deposition
Proliferative phaseWound begins to infill (wound dimensions reduce)
Epithelialization (saucerization) of margins
Formation of granulation tissue
Recruitment of fibroblasts; collagen formation
Epidermal cells at margins mitose and spread out to begin to close wound
Maturation phaseWound contraction
Wound closure
Scar formation
Myofibrils within fibroblasts contract
Epithelialization is complete
Devascularization of fibrotic tissue that forms scar
