Venous Leg ulcers occur when the venous valves that prevent backflow of blood in veins do not function properly. These chronic wounds usually form in the medial distal area of the legs and are often called leg ulcers.
Effective management of chronic ulcers involves the assessment of both the ulcer and the patient. The essential requirements of management are to debride the ulcer with appropriate precautions, choose dressings that maintain adequate moisture balance, apply graduated compression bandage after evaluation of the arterial circulation and address the patient’s concerns, such as pain and offensive wound discharge.
Principles in choosing the appropriate dressings are to :
SEESKIN P is a collagen particle dressing that allows Nano Sized Collagen particles to make better contact with the wound bed and offers excellent bio-availability for cavity diabetic foot ulcers. These promote granulation from within. It is easy to apply and promotes healthy granulation in deep diabetic foot ulcers faster. The Nano particle with higher surface area make better contact with wound bed.
Slough is a by-product of the healing process when the wound is still in the inflammatory phase. Slough is primarily made up of dead or devitalized tissue that needs to be “debrided” from the wound bed to promote healing. Only after this slough removal will new cell formation take place. SYNERHEAL GEL aids in the autolytic debridement of diabetic foot ulcers, while maintaining optimal moisture levels at the wound site. It also promotes rehydration of dry wounds and eschar.
SYNERSOL AG antimicrobial wound dressing is an amorphous liquid hydrogel dressing which has Nano Sized Silver particles. Nano. Hydrogel with Nano silver particles prevents infection and also helps in maintaining a moist wound environment conducive for healing. This is a regular / daily changed dressing.
