Method: CASE(1) Fournier gangrene of peri-anal region. Radical sharp debridement preformed x2, adherent fibrin formed daily making it unrealistic for daily sharp debridement, indicating need for alternative solution. Polyacrylate dressing implemented (3 weeks), followed by 100% native collagen dressing** through wound closure. CASE(2) traumatic ulcer with underlying venous insufficiency. Polyacrylate dressing utilized under single layer compression (6 weeks) to promote debridement, then transitioned to multilayer compression till closure. CASE(3) chronic lymphedema patient presented with infected circumferential wound, polyacrylate dressing utilized (6.5 weeks ) under single layer compression to promote debridement.
Results: Polyacrylate dressing use led to satisfactory debridement in all cases, followed by wound resolution with other appropriate dressings. Polyacrylate dressing was easy to use and effective in multiple clinical settings. Patient experiences during dressing use concluded no discomfort. Polyacrylate dressing is a valuable option for providing moist wound environment and promoting autolytic debridement delivering desired results.
