Following our recent editorials regarding the estimation of the costs of wound care both globally and nationally,1 we published a few regional specific analyses.2,3 To supplement this further, we carried out a similar analysis in the remaining top 10 highest spenders and updated their national costs to the most recent government data published. The regional analysis may vary by country depending on the collective statistics available for the regions. The recent editorial introduced the approach to estimate the possible costs of wound care using freely available governmental health data, population statistics, and the research findings of many national groups.1 Using this methodology, an estimate, the costs of wounds nationally as a whole, and the individual regional elements of which the countries are comprised was carried out for those countries within the top 10 spenders, globally
