New Data Demonstrate Magnetic Resonance Safety of AQUACEL(R) Ag Dressing
Date:8/24/2009

SKILLMAN, N.J., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading provider of innovative medical technologies for community and hospital care, today announced new data showing that AQUACEL(R) Ag, the company's advanced antimicrobial dressing, is safe for use in an MRI environment.

AQUACEL(R) Ag dressing was developed to provide clinicians and patients with all the unique gelling benefits of ConvaTec's proprietary Hydrofiber(R) Technology plus the benefits of ionic silver. This gelling action enables the dressing to lock in exudate and its harmful components(2-4a) and contour closely to the wound bed.(5a) With the addition of ionic silver, AQUACEL(R) Ag dressing provides broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity "on demand," responding to increased bacterial load with increased silver ion availability while killing a broad range of pathogens in the dressing, including MRSA and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).(6,7a,b)

The new research, published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, demonstrated that AQUACEL(R) Ag may be classified as MR safe as defined in the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard F2503-05.(1) An independent agency review, funded by ConvaTec, also demonstrated the safety and compatibility of the dressing in an MRI environment (up to 3 Tesla 128 MHz, SAR up to 2 W/kg), according to the standards of the ASTM.(8)

"ConvaTec initiated this important research because many of our customers have patients, particularly those in orthopaedic or burns units, who may need MRI scanning," said Marcus Schabacker, Chief Scientific Officer of ConvaTec. "With these findings, clinicians can be confident that AQUACEL(R) Ag is safe for use in this environment, and they will no longer need to remove and reapply the dressing before and after entering the MRI machine."
