Using Innovated Traumastem Biodress in Chronic Wounds Treatment

26. 07. 2010

n spring 2009, during the treatment of chronic wounds, I tested a sterile, resorbable, bioactive dressing Traumastem Biodress. I already introduced my experience with this dressing in combination with Hyiodine in the summer issue if this magazine for nurses. This combination proved successful; only a necessity of using another overlying dressing of the wound was a disadvantage. We tested several various materials but we were not a hundred percent satisfied with the result. Using the sterile square dressing, it was necessary to exchange them more often, which resulted in financial impact but also it was more work for nursing staff. Modern materials with a high absorbency did not need to be exchanged that often, however the financial demands were not acceptable.

The clinical trial with the purpose to prove the effect of hydrogen-calcium salt of oxidized cellulose during leg ulcers treatment, took place in Surgery Department of The Hospital in Semily in 2008. Patients with chronic leg ulcers of various aetiologies, persisting more than 2 months, were included in this trial.

Clinical Observation of Effectiveness and Safety of Medical Device on Basis of Oxidized Cellulose

The clinical observation was carried out on the basis of predefined and known clinical data, with respect to stated properties of bandaging material. The target group consisted of patients with stagnating shinbone ulcerations of arterial and venous origin as well as diabetic foot. The observation was performed 7.10.2008 – 31.7.2009

Operating wound healing disorder represents a serious complication of surgical intervention, prolongs patient´s hospitalization and requires more demanding nursery care. Our experience confirmed that therapy with Traumacel Biodress accelerates dehiscent wounds healing due to its ability of tissue remodelling.

Different ways of leg ulcer treatment - Traumastem Biodress

Ulcerus cruris as a chronic wound can be of various etiology, mostly venous or arterial, possibly of mixed etiology. Sometimes there is not possible to find a primary causation, what results in cases of non-healing leg ulcers, from which a patient suffers for many months or years. Despite of the entire examination effort and a therapy both general and local, whether standard treatment or treatment with modern dressings, repeated hospitalisations and nursery care, these ulcerations heal and recur repeatedly and sometimes they do not heal completely at all. This casuistry concerns a patient from this group, even if we, during continuous observations and examinations, have found other diseases worsening the ulcerations.
