Primary intention of healing

Primary intention of healing

Primary wound healing, or primary intention wound healing, refers to when doctors close a wound using staples, stitches, glues, or other forms of wound-closing processes. Closing a wound in this way reduces the tissue lost and allows the body to focus on closing and healing a smaller-area wound rather than the larger initial wound. For example, a doctor might stitch up a large cut rather than allow the body to heal over the entire cut.
