Lomatuell® Pro

Gel forming wound contact net

In detail

Lomatuell Pro is a wound contact layer consisting of a wide-meshed tulle, impregnated with a polymer matrix which contains with petroleum jelly and hydrocolloid particles, which form a gel on contact with wound exudate to facilitate moist wound healing.

It offers a solution to the challenge of dressings/residue sticking to the wound or wound, which may cause pain and trauma on removal.

Key benefits

  • Gel formation supports moist wound healing
  • Dressing changes are atraumatic and virtually painless
  • Effective transfer of exudate into the secondary dressing
  • Less disturbance of the wound bed: intervals between dressing changes may be extended
  • Conforms well to the contours of the wound bed, meaning all the areas benefit from the moist properties
  • Either side can be applied, eliminating concerns over incorrect application

Features in detail

  • **Wide-mesh tulle carrying the polymer matrix**

Open mesh structure carries the elastic, malleable fixing compound, which contains petroleum jelly and hydrocolloids.

Indications

Indications for use:

Wounds with no or low levels of exudate, or combined with an appropriate absorbant dressing for moderate to highly exuding wounds including: - Chronic wounds e.g. leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers - Acute wounds e.g. lacerations, cuts, abrasions and superficial epidermal and partial thickness burns - Surgical wounds e.g. surgical wounds healing by secondary intention, toenail avulsions and skin graft and donor sites

Precautions:

Do not use if there is a known sensitivity to the product or any of its components.

Wear time:

Up to 7 days. Intervals between dressing changes must be determined by the clinician based on the condition of the wound, level of exudate and secondary dressing.

Clinical evidence

Effect of non-adhering dressings on promotion of fibroblast proliferation and wound healing in vitro

It was observed that non-adhering dressings like Lomatuell® Pro can prevent damage to newly formed tissue and might thereby positively influence the wound healing outcome.
