Mehtar, S, Dr., Mayet, F. A pilot study of Intrasite Gel in the management of infected wounds


A pilot study of Intrasite Gel in the management of clinically infected wounds was carried out at the North Middlesex Hospital in London.
Five patients with a variety of clinically infected wounds were recruited to the study. One patient had 2 wounds, making a total of six wounds evaluated during the study period.
All patients were treated using systematic antibiotics. Non-occlusive secondary dressings were used, and in the majority of cases dressings were changed on a 24 hourly basis. All six wounds treated went through to a stage were the infection was said to have resolved.
The study demonstrates that clinically infected wounds can be successfully treated through a resolution of infection using Intrasite Gel, when the manufacturers guidelines for using are followed.
