29/06/14 | Articles, Infection | Ailsa Sharp, Tanya Brandon, Lorraine Thursby

This series of three case studies focuses on patients with wounds with malodour, infection and stalled healing treated with ACTISORB® Silver 220 (Systagenix). The series evaluation covers a wide range of wound types, including an overgranulating wound, black/necrotic toes and skin infection. In each case, ACTISORB Silver 220’s combination of activated charcoal and metallic silver was successful in achieving the treatment goals.
