  TREATMENT WITH  

Wound cleansing with saline solution, application of and wound coverage with  a non-woven gauze and a plaster. Initially, wound cavity was filled with the corner of the non-woven gauze.

  RESULT

Wound closure within 38 days.

CONCLUSION HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL
Dr. A. Lenz, MD, Switzerland

“After applying    the oil flows into the wound and distributes equally within the entire wound cavity. This enables the granulation from the wound bed and therefore reduces the risk that the wound edges close faster than the wound granulates. In addition, a corner of the non-woven gauze was lled into the wound cavity in order to reduce this risk further. Thanks to the spray application, the dressing change is very simple and fast.”
