Abstract

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CONVENTIONAL DRESSINGS VERSUS COLLAGEN GRANULE DRESSING IN CHRONIC WOUNDS HEALING

Dr. Kamal Kumar* and Dr. Nidhi Jaiswal

ABSTRACT

Wounds are basically injuries that causes break in the skin or any other body tissues. Chronic Wounds can sometimes cause painful and long hospital stay, it can also need multiple stages of surgeries, which may lead to financial burden. As a result of development in medical field many new dressing materials have developed, like fine mesh gauze, calcium alginate, and hydro- colloid membranes. These materials have some disadvantages also, like they become permeable to bacteria. Collagen dressings on other hand are new type of dressings which create the most physiologically safe interface between environment and the wound surface and is also impermeable to microbes. This collagen granule dressing has advantage over other conventional dressing as it is non-immunogenic, being natural, non-pyrogenic, easy to apply and most important is that it decreased days of healing. In our present work we have compared the rate of healing in about 100 patients, in about half of them conventional dressing was used and rest of them collagen dressings was used. Data was compared and we found out that healing was much faster in the patients with collagen dressings.
