Warnings and Precautions

For Topical Use Only.

Where venous insufficiency exists, VISCOPASTE* PB7 may be used under graduated, sustained compression bandaging, after first assessing the patient to exclude arterial disease. The use of Doppler ultrasound is recommended for this purpose.

Failure to detect reduced arterial flow can result in pressure necrosis, amputation, or even death. The risk of a patient having arterial as well as venous disease rises with age.

One of the functions of occlusive bandages is to increase absorption. Care should be taken, therefore, if it is decided to apply topical steroid, anaesthetic, or retinoid preparations under the bandage, as their absorption may be significantly increased. This may lead to a shorter duration of effect of a topical anaesthetic product.

The skin of leg ulcer patients is easily sensitized to topical medicaments - including preservatives. Sensitization should be suspected in patients, particularly where there is deterioration of the surrounding skin. Such patients should be referred for specialist diagnosis, including patch testing.

Mode of Use/Application

There are 2 ways that the bandage can be applied:

Method 1
Beginning at the base of the toes, the bandage should be loosely wrapped around the foot, heel and around the leg in a spiral fashion to just below the knee. Once applied, the bandage should then be smoothed and molded around the leg.

Method 2
Beginning at the base of the toes, the bandage should be loosely wrapped around the foot and heel and then, whilst wrapping from the ankle, with every turn the bandage should be folded back on itself in a pleat, at the front of the leg. This should be repeated up the leg until just below the knee. Compression bandaging may follow. Once VISCOPASTE* PB7 has been applied, the leg should be covered by a bandage or dressing to prevent soiling to clothes.
