Surgical and Pressure Related Wounds

An incision is a "cut" through the skin that is made during surgery. It also called a "surgical wound." Some incisions are small, and others are very long. The size of the incision depends on the type of surgery performed. Pressure wounds, such as bedsores, are injuries to skin and its tissues that result from prolonged pressure on the skin.
