Ans c

Delayed primary closure, or tertiary intention, is utilised when there is a high probability of the wound being infected.

The wound is left open for a few days and, provided any infective process has resolved, the
wound is closed to heal by primary intention.

Skin grafting is another form of tertiary intention healing
