BIOSTEP & BIOSTEP Ag Collagen Matrix Dressings by Smith & Nephew
- Unique Dual-Action MMP Targeting & Deactivation
MMP Targeting: contains both type 1 and denatured (gelatin) porcine-derived collagen. This novel collagen matrix attracts and serves as sacrificial substrates for a broad array of MMPs which are found in excess within, and contribute to the chronicity of, chronic wounds.
MMP Deactivation: contains EDTA (a proven MMP modulating agent) which permanently deactivates excess MMPs, providing prolonged, targeted MMP control without altering the activity of essential growth factors. This contributes to a longer wear time.
- Patient Friendly
CMC within dressing gels on contact with moisture providing improved patient comfort by creating a soothing, cooling effect upon application. Up to a 6-day wear time provides for fewer dressing changes and prolonged control of wound environment.
- Easy to Use
CMC within dressing adds structure for easy application when moist. Highly conformable to ensure close contact with wound bed.
- Moisture Manager
Alginate absorbs a high level of exudate away from the wound bed to the secondary dressing maintaining an optimal moisture balance for wound closure.
Management of full-thickness and partial-thickness acute and chronic wounds including:
- Pressure ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies
- Venous ulcers
- 1nd and 2nd degree burns
- Donor/graft sites
- Dehisced surgical wounds
- Traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention
