Limitations

Although the authors' data help to reveal whether patients with chronic pressure wounds are being overtreated with vitamins A and C, zinc, and arginine, the small sample size was a limitation of the study. Future studies must be done to further correlate nutritional status with vitamin levels in patients with chronic pressure ulcers.
