The therapeutic benefit is essentially based on three physical principles:
The rapidly falling pressure-tension of LIGASANO® white reduces the pressure on the wound, promotes granulation and additionally reduces the counter-pressure on the new generated granulation.
The mechanical stimulus (that means the structure of the dressing is sensed by the tissue) promotes the local blood flow and thus activates self-cleaning.
Because only surplus exudate is absorbed (controlled suction effect, exudate management), LIGASANO® white does not dry out the wound. Depending on its thickness, an intermittent under-pressure is generated.
If the wound allows a discharge of secretion, it can be treated directly with LIGASANO® white without any pre-treatment.
Fill the wound completely with LIGASANO® white. Make sure that there is contact everywhere in the wound, including at the wound edges.
Any pockets will also be filled in. Then the wound is covered with another piece of LIGASANO® white, overlapping the wound edges by at least 1-2 cm.
A large plate of LIGASANO® white is placed on top to treat the wound environment.
The treatment with LIGASANO® white must also be at least 2 cm thick for flat wounds, measured from the wound bed.
For all other wounds, the dressing thickness must be correspondingly thicker. Rule of thumb: The larger the area of the surrounding wound treatment, the better the effect.
The fixation must always be open to air. Fixing panties, tubular bandages or preferably LIGAMED®Fix are well suited.
Dressing change intervals: 1x daily to 1x every three days, but at the latest when the first secretion point becomes visible on the outside of LIGASANO® white.
In the case of heavily weeping wounds during the cleaning phase, this can also occur several times a day.

What do you always have to consider in all applications?
The application must always be carried out by the physician or by medically/nursally trained representatives.
What are the different dosage forms?
LIGASANO® white is available in various versions (e.g. sheets, OP table sheets, compresses, wound strips), in sterile or non-sterile form depending on the area of application. When sterilizing on site, please note the possible risks, such as severe contamination.
Please refer to the current product list for the available dosages.
How to store it:
LIGASANO® white is highly flammable and sensitive to UV radiation. Therefore protect against open fire, embers, heat, UV radiation and moisture. In the original packaging, there is limited protection against moisture and UV rays thanks to the UV filter film we use. Storage is only permitted in the original packaging. LIGASANO® white may change colour to yellow. This does not imply any limitation of quality.
Disposal / environmental relevance:
LIGAMED® medical Produkte GmbH maintains a certified quality management system for medical products. In addition, it also demonstrates environmental awareness through validation in accordance with the EC Regulation (EMAS) and participation in the "Umweltpakt Bayern" (Bavarian Environmental Pact). We will be happy to send you our current certificates on request. All LIGASANO® products are single-material materials, consist of more than 97% air and can be disposed of as household waste. The disposal of packaging is regulated differently internationally, in Germany by Reclay VfW GmbH.
