Mepilex Border Now Available In Surgical Sizes

Mölnlycke Health Care has introduced new sizes of its Mepilex Border dressing, suitable for surgical wounds.

The new sizes of Mepilex Border are 10x20cm and 10x30cm.  They are designed for a wide range of surgical wounds, such as those on the hip, thorax and knee. 

Mepilex Border is a self-adherent dressing, which makes it easy to use and saves time at dressing changes.  It also effectively absorbs exudate and minimises the risk of leakage and maceration.  Mepilex Border’s unique Safetac? soft silicone adhesive technology allows the dressing to be changed without causing additional pain to the patient or trauma to the wound and surrounding skin. The dressing’s new, breathable film backing is both bacterial and viral proof, which helps protect the wound from outer contamination. It also provides improved fixation, as it minimises friction against clothes and bed linen, meaning it stays in place better.

The new sizes of Mepilex Border will be available on prescription, and via hospital supply routes, from May 1 2007.
