ConvaTec Launches New AQUACEL(R) Ag Dressing with Strengthening Fiber
Date:5/14/2009

Now 20 Times Stronger,* Advanced Ribbon Dressing Features Hydrofiber(R) Technology

SKILLMAN, N.J., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading developer and marketer of innovative medical technologies for community and hospital care, announced today the launch of AQUACEL(R) Ag Dressing with Strengthening Fiber, a new advanced ribbon dressing, in the U.S. Up to 20 times stronger than the original ribbon dressing, the improved wound dressing also offers reduced shrinkage and is the only absorbent filler dressing to offer the unique gelling benefits of Hydrofiber(R) Technology plus the antimicrobial properties of ionic silver.(1,2)

The added strength of the new AQUACEL(R) Ag ribbon dressing makes it ideal for use in packing a wide variety of cavity wounds, such as post-surgical wounds, excised abscesses, pilonidal cysts, and stage III and stage IV pressure ulcers that have tunneling and undermining. In addition, AQUACEL(R) Ag dressing provides the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties of ionic silver, which kills a broad range of pathogens in the dressing, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) as demonstrated in vitro.(3) A comparative in vitro testing of existing products showed new AQUACEL(R) Ag ribbon dressing has greater wet tensile strength -- the measure of force necessary to break the dressing when wet -- than major competitors tested.(4)

Dot Weir, RN and Program Director of The Wound Healing Center of Osceola Regional Medical Center, welcomed the launch of the new AQUACEL(R) Ag ribbon dressing in the U.S., "The new dressing provides the continued performance of excellent absorption of the wound exudate we have come to expect from Hydrofiber(R) Technology, with the added bonus of noticeable ease of removal and remarkable strength, providing pain reduction for the patient and confidence for the clinician."
