The diabetic wound healing is a common problem faced by both physicians and surgeons. The applications of nano biomaterials opened a new way to heal diabetic wounds. There were four parts in this review. First, we introduced the concept of the nano biomaterials. Second, we summarized systematically the mechanism of the nano biomaterials used for promoting wound healing. Thirdly, the application of nano biomaterials in clinical practice was introduced. At last, we mentioned the features of diabetic wound and presented the basic and clinical researches of the nano biomaterials in diabetic wound healing.

Keywords: Nano biomaterial, diabetes mellitus, wound healing.
