Rope with poly-absorbent fibres and sterile probe
- Deslouching phase of chronic exuding wounds (eg leg ulcers, pressure injuries, diabetic foot ulcers)
- Potentially sloughy wounds
- acute wounds (burns, skin abrasions, traumatic wounds)
- post-operative wound
- cancerous wounds
- Do not use if there is a known sensitivity to UrgoClean®
- Do not use UrgoClean® as a surgical sponge for heavily bleeding wounds
- Do not use in fistula wounds with a diameter less than that of the probe, do not use on dry wounds
- Do not use as surgical packing (non-resorbable rope)
- Do not use in endo-nasal area in rhino-sinusitis surgery
- The soft-adherent TLC layer of UrgoClean® adheres to latex gloves. It is therefore recommended that the dressing be handled carefully, avoiding any contact with the soft-adherent side or using sterile forceps. The concomitant use of a cream, lotion, ointment or emulsion is not recommended
- Due to the non-occlusive nature of this dressing, UrgoClean® can be used on infected wounds under close medical supervision
- During the desloughing process, the wound may appear to be larger in size. This is due to the effective removal of slough
- Do not re-sterilise the dressing
- Check that the sterile protector is intact before use. Do not use if package is damaged
- Single use sterile individual packaging: re-using a single use dressing may lead to risks of infection
