Chronic non healing wounds represent a problem for clinicians. These case studies represent use of a new foam dressing which may offer an alternative for non healing pressure ulcer wounds. The purpose of the case studies is to present the efficacy of this new foam dressing.
All subjects were female, over the age of 65 and diagnosed with chronic non healing pressure ulcer wounds. The new foam dressing was used in place of the facility’s standard dressing and changed every three days.
The new foam dressing is highly absorbent, soft, wound conforming and contains three antimicrobial agents: Methylene Blue, Gentian Violet and Silver.
Each patient was followed until wound closure was achieved. Mean time to closure for all wounds was 38 days or 5 weeks; ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks.
Good results were obtained using the new medicated foam dressing for treating the 3 chronic ulcer cases.. Pictures of the cases are available for viewing.
This represents three patient cases. Data cannot be inferred to the general population. Further study with randomized controls are needed to make any broad based claims
