What are Gangrene & Tissue Death?

When we think of tissue death in modern times, we may not typically think of gangrene. That being said, gangrene is just another name for a condition in which tissue from parts of your body dies off. While tissue death can occur anywhere, gangrene itself generally affects your extremities. If you are experiencing tissue death or gangrene and are interested in getting help for your condition in the comfort and safety of your own home, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our expert medical professionals at your earliest convenience.

How Do I Know if I Have Gangrene or Tissue Death?

Common symptoms of gangrene and tissue death that many of our patients find they experience include:

  • A wound that is swollen and red
  • A wound that is filled with pus or gives off an odor
  • A wound in which the skin turns an unusual color like green, black, or blue
  • Open sores that keep coming back in the same place
  • Lack of sensation in the affected area

What Causes Gangrene & Tissue Death?

Gangrene can occur from a variety of different complications and conditions. Some patients may notice that their tissue death is occurring from parts of the body not receiving enough oxygen, while other patients may experience tissue death from a bacterial infection. Although it's rare, gangrene can also be caused by a bacterial infection that creates gas bubbles that affect the wounded area. Patients who are at a higher risk of developing gangrene include patients with diabetes, arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arterial walls, blood clots, and Raynaud's disease.
