used to ensure INTEGRA Bilayer Matrix Wound
Dressing is in complete contact with the wound bed
In this case, cotton cast padding followed by a bias
stockinet and total contact cast was used to
ensure INTEGRA Bilayer
Matrix Wound Dressing remained in contact with
the wound bed
Do not let Dakins Solution, petroleum-based
products, e.g., Xeroform, or enzymatic debridement agents,
(e.g., Collagenase), come in contact with the INTEGRA
Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing application sites.
Use splints or bolsters, per unit protocols, during first
5-7 days. Splints should be applied and should stay on
at all times (except when performing wound care).
The VAC (Vacuum Assisted Closure)* may be used over unmeshed
or meshed INTEGRA Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing
sites, in particular, as a bolster dressing for difficult
anatomical sites or wound beds, such as the axilla.
