CONCLUSION HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL
Dr. S. Läuchli, MD, Switzerland
“This case shows how important a causal therapy is when treating wounds. The wound healing process stagnated until the compression therapy was performd consistently. The use of led to an impressive granulation once the wound had the chance to heal. In addition, enabled a very simple and pain-free dressing change. This was particularly helpful for this patient as he was very scared to experience pain during the dressing changes.”
