Does LIGASANO® stick to the wound?

In principle, LIGASANO® does not stick to wounds because it is always a moist wound care. Nevertheless, it sometimes happens in practice that LIGASANO® still sticks stubbornly to wounds. Below is an overview of the causes known to us and their countermeasures:

Causes

Corrective measures

The LIGASANO® wound dressing is thinner than 2 cm, therefore too much air reaches the wound, the exudate evaporates too quickly and dries out.

Measured from the wound bed, LIGASANO® should always be at least 2 cm thick to ensure a moist and warm wound environment.

LIGASANO® has no contact with the wound in places. Exudate cannot be absorbed and dries on the one hand on the wound and on the other hand on LIGASANO®.

Always pay attention to full-surface wound contact. Always apply LIGASANO® to the wound with light compression. Do not be afraid of compression!

In wounds that in principle only weep very little, such as superficial burns or abrasions, the leaked blood or exudate can dry out.

It is usually helpful to moisten LIGASANO® on the wound side, e.g. with Ringer's solution, in order to increase the humidity.

In addition, ointments, gels or medicines are used in wound treatment which dry out and thus combine with the skin/wound on the one hand and LIGASANO® on the other.

This sticking is desired in individual cases. The adhesive effect of the gel should accelerate the debridement process. If the adhesive effect is not desired, please check whether ointment, gel or medication is really necessary or whether another, non-drying preparation with the desired effect is available.

Additional ointments, gels or medicines are applied to the wound, which have a drying effect on the wound itself. A moist, warm wound environment cannot develop.

Please check whether an ointment, gel or medication is really necessary or whether another, non-drying preparation with the desired effect is available.

LIGASANO®: was too long in the wound during the granulation phase, newly formed tissue has sprouted into the cell structure.

When LIGASANO® is used, wounds often granulate surprisingly quickly and strongly. In such cases, it makes sense to shorten the interval between the change of supply.

 

As a general rule, if LIGASANO® is stuck to a wound, please wet it from the outside and press the wetness into the material with pumping movements so that the dried blood or exudate softens to such an extent that LIGASANO® can be easily removed.
