Background Radiation-induced wounds are extremely difficult to treat. They may lead to severe infections and can even be life-threatening. Wound dressings, negative pressure wound treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and antibiotics are the main treatment modalities for radiation-induced wounds. Amniotic membrane is the innermost surface of the placenta. It has been shown that amniotic membrane induces re-epithelization, regulates angiogenesis, and decreases inflammation and fibrosis. Our proposed theory was that amniotic membrane can have a role in treating radiation-induced wounds by inducing epithelization and increasing wound tensile strength.
