RENASYS-G Gauze Dressing Kit with Soft Port


As part of the complete Smith & Nephew RENASYS Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System, the RENASYS-G Gauze Dressing Kits help deliver customized therapy to even the most unique complexities of patients' wounds. The conformability and hydrophilic, non-adherent properties of the dressing kits make them well-suited for pain-sensitive areas, as well as irregularly shaped, tunneling and undermining wounds.

Why gauze?

Enhanced patient comfort

  • Gauze is ranked number one in patient comfort upon application and removal, and is suitable for most wound types and sizes.1

High conformability

  • Gauze is moldable and forgiving, making it easy to apply to any wound. It is especially suited to anatomically challenging locations with abnormal contours or undermining, such as the sacrum. It is also ideal for large surface areas, explored fistulas and tunneling wounds.

Benefits of gauze

  • The antimicrobial properties of the RENASYS-G Gauze Dressing Kits may help minimize the risk of infection, while the non-adherent material protects granulation tissue from trauma on removal. Gauze is also hydrophilic, enabling moist wound healing.


flex with handRENASYS-G Gauze Dressing Kits may also be used in conjunction with ACTICOAT Flex, an antimicrobial barrier dressing with a Nanocrystalline Silver coating, proven to kill a broad spectrum of pathogens in as little as 30 minutes.2

The use of negative pressure presents a risk of tissue ingrowth into the foam/gauze. Tissue ingrowth may be reduced by lowering therapy pressure, using a wound contact layer or by increasing the frequency of dressing changes.


The use of the gauze device is contraindicated in the presence of non-enteric and unexplored fistulas
