The regranulation of tissue places high demands on the body's nutritional requirements. Therefore, nutritional status should be monitored and supplemental nutrients provided from the onset of diagnosis. Following surgical intervention for debridement, reconstruction may be necessary. Granulation and new skin growth may take place sufficiently without further intervention, but in many cases, skin grafts are required to complete wound healing. If resection involves the abdominal or chest wall, reconstruction involving implantation of either polypropylene prosthetic or absorbable mesh is often needed.
