Abstract

Wound exudate is an essential component of normal wound healing, but colonized and infected wounds, with excessive exudate and inflammation, pose a significant problem for healthcare systems worldwide. Excessive exudate hinders wound healing, and results in leakage, soiling, odor and pain. Therefore, research into innovative exudate solutions is warranted. Exufiber Ag+, a gelling fiber dressing with Hydrolock technology, was evaluated in this prospective, multi-center study. Interim results were presented on 54 patients from seven sites. The study found that Exufiber Ag+ is well-tolerated and performed well in terms of exudate handling, technical performance and patient experience.
