Abstract

Bacterial infection hinders wound healing. Important mechanism of which is growth in the dressing material itself. Wound dressings are of various types and they act by an individual mechanism, but none of which prevent growth of the organism in the wound dressing itself. In this case report, we would like to describe a dressing that can prevent microbial contamination of the wound, biofilm formation and contamination of the dressing itself.
