Biobrane reduces patient pain and decreases healing time

 

Biobrane is a biosynthetic wound dressing constructed of a silicone film with a nylon fabric partially imbedded into the film. The fabric presents to the wound bed a complex 3-D structure of trifilament thread to which collagen has been chemically bound. Blood/sera clot in the nylon matrix, thereby firmly adhering the dressing to the wound until epithelialisation occurs.

 

Smith & Nephew are now the exclusive international distributors for Biobrane. For more information contact your local Smith & Nephew customer service centre.

Biobrane-L

Biosynthetic Wound Dressing
Temporary Wound Dressing Light Adherence

 

Biobrane-L is a less complex nylon fabric for use when less aggressive adherence is required. The lower weight monofilament thread utilized in Biobrane -L presents a shallow, less complex matrix to the wound bed, thereby reducing the degree of clot integration and adherence.

 

If in the rare instance a patient shows evidence of an allergic reaction to the product, it should be removed and its use discontinued.
