Hypertrophic granulation tissue
hypertrophic granulation, hyperplasia of granulation tissue, or proud flesh could form. Hypergranulation could result in impaired wound healing, predisposition to infection, and an increased risk of scarring. Hypertrophic granulation tissue is typically not painful or tender.
Risk factors for hypergranulation include healing by secondary intention, excessive moisture, infection or high bacterial burden, reaction to foreign bodies (eg, around stoma or catheter sites), friction, medications (eg, retinoids), and use of occlusive dressing.
