dc.description.abstractWound healing is an intrinsic and dynamic process. Wound exudate is a normal feature of wound healing; however, when there is insufficient or excessive production, or the composition of the exudate is harmful, wound healing may be compromised with resulting psychosocial and financial implications. Therefore, the management of exudate is essential for improved patient outcomes and in the prevention of future complications. The purpose of these studies, carried out in Germany and Poland, was to observe and to evaluate the clinical performance of Cutimed® Siltec® and Cutimed Siltec B on patients' wounds. Three visits (initial visit, dressing change visit and final visit) were scheduled and documented. In all, 129 patients took part in these studies and 150 wounds were treated. The results were pooled. Positive attributes of using these dressings included a decrease in exudate, intact wound margins and a decrease in pain during dressing changes. Clinicians and patients were satisfied with the product and rated the following parameters as ‘good’ to ‘very good’: wearing comfort, ease of application and removal, absorption and retention capacity, adaptability to the affected body part, absorption and retention capacity under compression. The results from this study suggest that Cutimed Siltec and Cutimed Siltec B absorbent dressings are beneficial in wound management due to the positive attributes, and clinicians and patients showed satisfaction with these dressings.en_US
