Abstract

An open, non-comparative, multi-centre clinical investigation was undertaken to evaluate the performance and safety of a highly absorbent, gelling fibre dressing* in the management of PUs (stages II to IV). The results support the use of the gelling fibre dressing for the treatment of moderately-to-highly exuding wounds. The observed improvements in the condition of the wounds and decrease in the number of patients with ‘moderate’ or ‘severe’ signs of peri-wound skin damage are indicators of the dressing’s ability to manage excess exudate.
