Wound healing process has three distinct phases.
Each phase is a complex and well coordinated at cellular level.
Distinct phases are

Some authors consider this a separate entity and do not include in phases of wound healing. Anyway hemostasis is series of events that aims to minimize the bleeding.
Before actual inflammatory phase begins, there occurs an event called clotting cascade, which helps to minimize bleeding and generate factors for actual inflammatory phase. [Read more...]
