The LONG LASTING DEPOT EFFECT of Colloidal Silver
The ﬁnely dispersed colloidal silver provides a large surface for the continuous release of silver ions. As silver does not dissolve easily, it is not washed out of the gelatine sponge, but is continually released as the sponge is resorbed. This provides a depot effect with the product providing an antimicrobial effect throughout the resorption process.
HAEMOSTASIS AND PREVENTION OF POST OPERATIVE BLEEDING WITH GELATINE
The evenly porous foam structure absorbs its own weight in blood several times over, promotes thrombocyte aggregation due to the large surface and ﬁlls the wound cavity.
The sponge remains in the alveolus and is completely resorbed within 4 weeks.
HOW TO USE
Supplied in a sterile and ready-to-use blister. The sponge can be cut to ﬁt the wound cavity if required, while two sponges can be used for larger wounds. Care must be taken that the sponge is not compressed. Pressure on the sponge will destroy its structure and prevent the collection of blood within it.
- After extraction allow blood to accumulate in the alveolus.
- Cut sponge to the correct size
- Place sponge in the wound and suture.
