Gangrene is a medical term used to represent the death of an area of the body. It develops when the blood supply is cut off to the affected part as a result of various processes, such as Infection, Vascular Disease, or Trauma. Gangrene can affect any part of the body; the most common sites include the Toes, Fingers, Feet, and Hands.
Two major types of Gangrene:
A reduction of blood flow causes dry gangrene through the arteries. It appears gradually and progresses slowly. In most people, the affected portion does not become infected. In this sort of gangrene, the tissue converts cold and black, begins to dry, and finally sloughs off. Dry Gangrene usually is recognized in people with blockage of arteries (Arteriosclerosis) growing from developed cholesterol levels, cigarette smoking, diabetes, and genetic and other factors.
Wet or Moist Gangrene happens as a complication of an untreated infected wound. Swelling resulting from the bacterial virus causes a sudden stoppage of blood flow. Cessation of blood flow facilitates the invasion of the muscles by the bacteria and multiplication of the bacteria.
Gas gangrene is a sort of wet gangrene created by the bacteria known as Clostridia. Clostridia are a type of infection-causing bacteria that increase only in the absence of oxygen. As clostridia grow, they develop poisonous toxins and gas; therefore, the condition is called Gas Gangrene.
