Clean wound bed by removing necrotic tissue and scar tissue to obtain fresh tissue edges. Irrigate excessive exudates and control bleeding. Remove Cytal™ Wound Matrix from container using standard aseptic methods. Cut device slightly bigger than area of wound to be covered. Rehydrate Cytal™ Wound Matrix in room temperature sterile saline or sterile lactated Ringer's solution in a sterile dish for five minutes prior to use.
Large wound: More than one device may be needed to cover wound area. Overlap Cytal™ Wound Matrix edges slightly to ensure complete coverage.
Wet wound: Cover device with non-adherent dressing such as petrolatum gauze, followed by application of an absorptive dressing such as a calcium alginate. Secure dressings to wound site.
Dry wound: The non-adherent dressing should be followed by application of a hydrogel dressing to keep wound moist. Secure dressings to wound site. Keep device and wound bed moist.
Inspect wound for adverse reactions every seven days; remove exudates and apply new Cytal™ Wound Matrix to any non-covered wound areas. Do not remove any remaining device that is intact on wound surface. As Cytal™ Wound Matrix is resorbed, it may form a caramel-colored gel. Rinse wound surface gently leaving the caramel-colored gel intact and reapply another device. Repeat wound care follow-up process weekly until wound has epithelialized. Monitor tissue surrounding edges of wound.
