Wound treatment with LIGASANO®
LIGASANO® white can be used for all types of wounds and wound stages. Preoperative wound conditioning with LIGASANO® white is also a typical indication. LIGASANO® is sterile and non-sterile available.
With LIGASANO® green and LIGASANO® orange wounds can be covered or filled. A collapse of wounds under the influence of external pressure or suction, e.g. in active wound drainage or NPWT, is counteracted.
LIGASANO® simply works for
Wounds of various genesis
Decubitus / pressure ulcer
Diabetic foot ulcer
Pre- and postoperative wound treatment
Burns, scalds, frostbite
Wound conditioning prior to surgery
NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy)
different types of wounds
Deep wounds with undermining
Wounds with narrow entrance / fistulas
How does LIGASANO® white work?
The rapidly falling pressure tension of LIGASANO® white reduces the pressure on the wound, promotes granulation and reduces the counter pressure on the newly formed granulation tissue.
Due to its rapidly falling pressure tension, LIGASANO® adapts to contours with low compression, resulting in a uniform and overall reduced pressure on the wound and body. Reducing the pressure on the wound surface also promotes collagen attachment and granulation. The contact pressure of the body of bedridden inactive patients is distributed very evenly by LIGASANO® white. The formation of ischemic decubital ulcers is effectively prevented.
The mechanical stimulus (i.e., the structure of the dressing is perceived by the tissue) promotes blood circulation and activates self-cleaning.
LIGASANO® white triggers a local blood circulation in wound and skin contact, which results in a better nutrient and oxygen supply in the wound area (activation of the wound) and, in addition, has a preventive effect on intact skin. Especially in inactive patients, the reduced, normal body functions are promoted locally. The mechanical stimulus lasts for up to three days, at the latest then LIGASANO® white must be replaced. Even without deliberate movements, the surface structure of LIGASANO® white exerts a mechanical appeal. In case of skin or wound contact the blood circulation is promoted, with all positive consequences. By activating the self-cleaning it comes to increased secretion (more wound exudate = antiseptic effect), plaque and germs are flushed out and absorbed (autolytic wound cleaning with the simplest means and without chemistry.) The success is an automatic wound cleaning or wound conditioning, which supports manually if necessary micro and macro movements of the patient lead to intermittent negative pressure and thereby promote the mechanical stimulus on wound and skin.
Since only excess exudate is absorbed (controlled suction, exudate management), LIGASANO® white does not dry out the wound. Depending on the thickness of the material creates an intermittent negative pressure.
