Melgisorb Ag is ideal for deep, highly exuding cavity wounds at risk of infection, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic and neuropathic ulcers, graft and donor sites, surgical wounds, and trauma injuries. Molnlycke Melgisorb® Ag Calcium Alginate Dressing is a highly absorbent, alginate dressing with CMC and ionic silver that kills bacteria for up to four days. When absorbing, the alginate fibers form a soft, moist gel providing a moist environment conductive to wound healing
Soft, moist gel does not adhere to the wound site, thus reducing trauma and pain during wear and dressing change. The superb, wet strength of these alginate fibers do not allow the dressing to disintegrate in the wound bed so it may be removed easily in one piece. It can absorb large amounts of exudates, up to 18 times its own weight.
