The purpose of this study is to determine whether using a pressure- vs. simple adhesive dressing affects the postoperative course and wound healing outcomes following Mohs surgery.
Use of dressing is common place following surgery, allowing for wounds to be covered and protected. Dressing material with adhesive contact layers or adhesive tape is integral to sealing o...
This study will look at whether ELECT, a new adhesive foam dressing, can offer an alternative to traditional wound care methods. Patients will be treated with ELECT for 14 days. Data rela...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of treatment with hydrofibre dressing in comparison with the efficacy of standard dressing in terms of prevalence of surgical site inf...
Evaluate the clinical performance of a new IV Dressing in Comparison to a standard IV Dressing
The use of compressive adhesive bandages is widely extended in the field of plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery, and the apparition of skin damage after its removal is a relatively frequent...
Cases of venous leg ulcers (VLU) are expected to rise due to the rapidly ageing population in Malaysia. Central to the management of these wounds is compression therapy together with an appropriate wo...
Few burn dressings can self-regulate the optimal humidity levels that are required for wound healing, while also providing good anti-adhesive properties to prevent damage that can occur when wound dre...
Excessive biofluid around wounds often causes infection and hinders wound healing. However, the intrinsic hydrophilicity of the conventional dressing inevitably retains excessive biofluid at the inter...
The occupation concerned with the cutting and dressing of the hair of customers and, of men, the shaving and trimming of the beard and mustache. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
The performance of the basic activities of self care, such as dressing, ambulation, or eating.

An autologous or commercial tissue adhesive containing FIBRINOGEN and THROMBIN. The commercial product is a two component system from human plasma that contains more than fibrinogen and thrombin. The first component contains highly concentrated fibrinogen, FACTOR VIII, fibronectin, and traces of other plasma proteins. The second component contains thrombin, calcium chloride, and antifibrinolytic agents such as APROTININ. Mixing of the two components promotes BLOOD CLOTTING and the formation and cross-linking of fibrin. The tissue adhesive is used for tissue sealing, HEMOSTASIS, and WOUND HEALING.
