Dressings simplified for challenging wound sites
Spiracur Inc (Sunnyvale, CA) introduced its SNaP SecurRing™ Hydrocolloid. This new product, a hydrocolloid shaped into a ring, is designed to facilitate fast and easy applications of the SNaP Wound Care System on uneven skin surfaces or wounds in challenging locations. The new hydrocolloid is intended for patients with chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers or wounds to the plantar surface of the foot, as well as acute wounds, such as ray (toe) amputations. Designed to fill uneven skin surfaces and mold around wounds, it protects the periwound tissue from maceration and increases adhesion of the hydrocolloid dressing. The end result is a sterile wound care product that will decrease application time and cost by reducing the need for adjunct products necessary to protect the wound from excess moisture and leaks.
Gary Rothenberg, DPM, CDE, CWS, (Miami Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, Miami, FL) will present a poster, “Advances for Negative Pressure Wound Therapy in Challenging Anatomic Locations,” at the Symposium for Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) in Denver, CO, May 1–5, 2013. The poster describes the utilization of NPWT on an anatomically challenging location that otherwise would have been difficult to seal.
