Staytex ™ Case Study 3
Comfortable, when skin is tender and compression is required
This patient illustrates the principal that Staytex™ is comfortable, when skin is tender and compression is required.
These recurrent venous leg ulcers were painful. Patient tolerated mild elastic compression with Staytex™ in spite of pain. Tubigrip™ delivers mild compression that is less effective for healing ve-nous leg ulcers.
With Staytex™ elastic compression and weekly wound debridements after pretreatment with Anasept® to kill biofilm bacteria and soften wound bioburden, these venous leg ul-cers healed in 20 weeks.
