EWMA 2013 - Ep559 - OUR EXPERIENCE IN THE HEALING OF TRAUMATIC WOUNDS WITH A TLC-NOSF DRESSING*

  1. 1. OUR EXPERIENCE IN THE HEALING OF TRAUMATIC WOUNDS WITH A TLC-NOSF DRESSING* D. PERIGNON(1) , M. MARIE(2), J. STEINBRUNN (2) (1) Hopital Nord, Amiens, Amiens, France (2) Laboratoires URGO, Chenôve, France *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart®
  2. 2. The healing of substance losses of traumatic origin usually follows a favourable and expected course in the absence of underlying aggravating factors (venous disease, diabetes, immunosuppression, smoking), except in the event of secondary infection. In addition, advanced age and the presence of ulceration over a recent, fragile scar in the inflammatory period, are another two factors promoting poor healing. For the latter two situations, the authors report two cases of loss of substance treatment using TLC-NOSF dressing* following the failure of conventional dressing treatment. INTRODUCTION *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart®
  3. 3. 76 year-old female patient with venous disease presenting stasis dermatitis and extensive traumatic loss of skin substance, without bone exposure, on the anterior surface of the middle third of the tibia. After three weeks of treatment with greasy dressings, the wound remained sloughy with peripheral necrosis. Following mechanical desloughing, the different healing phases were obtained using TLC-NOSF dressing* until complete wound healing was achieved. CLINICAL CASE 1 *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart®
  4. 4. The wound at the mechanical desloughing stage Introduction of treatment with TLC-NOSF dressing* Appearance at W3 Appearance at W6 End of healing at W9 CLINICAL CASE 1 *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart®
  5. 5. 23 year-old female patient, who presented necrosis subsequent to a haematoma occurring under a total skin graft performed to cover loss of substance related to excision of a birth mark. The wound remained inflammatory and deep, with fragile, friable granulation tissue. Complete healing was obtained in 2 months with TLC-NOSF dressing*, following a first graft edge stabilisation phase and then a centripetal epithelialisation phase. CLINICAL CASE 2 *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart®
  6. 6. Initial post-traumatic appearance Introduction of treatment with TLC- NOSF dressing* Appearance at W2 Appearance at W4 W8: Complete epithelialisation CLINICAL CASE 2
  7. 7. These two cases illustrate our experience with TLC-NOSF dressing*, which now constitute a first-line treatment alternative for the management of chronic wounds of traumatic origin. *Brand name: the TLC-NOSF dressing is UrgoStart® CONCLUSION
