Management of a non-healing postoperative wound using a bacteria and fungi-binding mesh
This case report describes the use of Sorbact®, a bacteria and fungi-binding dressing, to treat a chronic surgical wound in a patient with a history of substance abuse and peripheral arterial disease. The wound had previously been treated unsuccessfully with negative pressure wound therapy and antimicrobial dressings, and had not healed 7 months after surgery. The use of Sorbact was viewed by the treating team as a turning point in wound healing, and its suggested mode of action in enabling wound healing is outlined here.
