Treatment of a bilateral necrotic leg ulcer with Mesitran

01/11/08 | Leg Ulcers, Products, Research | John Timmons

An 82-year-old female presented with bilateral leg ulcers of unknown origin. The ulcer on the patient’s left leg covered a relatively large par t of the gaiter area and was irregular in shape measuring 10cmx12cm at its widest points. The wound bed was covered with a mixture of 20% necrotic, 30% slough and 50% granulation tissue (Figure 1). The wound was producing low to moderate amounts of serous exudate. There were no signs of clinical infection, and the wound appeared to be colonised.
