Abstract

The surgical management of irradiated tissue can be regarded from two aspects - the performance of a surgical procedure in previously irradiated tissue, and the management of the nonhealing irradiated wound, a radiation ulcer. The discovery by Roentgen in 1895 of x-radiation was soon followed by descriptions of both tissue damage and skin cancer. The therapeutic value of radiation from radium was appreciated and described by Curie in 1896. An elementary knowledge of radiation and its effects on normal tissue are important to understanding the alteration of healing that occurs in a radiated wound, and both are briefly discussed in this article.
