Understanding overgranulation in tissue viability practice.

Author information



Overgranulation is a difficult condition to deal with and is thought to be due to possible infection or to use of occlusive dressings. The overgranulating tissue can be soft and oedematous with a shiny appearance. The fastest route to treatment (steroids or silver nitrate) may be aggressive and should be used sparingly (if at all). This article provides an outline of the process or tissue overgranulation in wounds and its appropriate clinical management.
