Directions for use:

6 – 48 hours post injury

  • Complete debridement of non-viable tissue until punctate bleeding is visible
  • Apply KeraGENtrixTM with the dull rough side down and wrinkle-free against the wound surface with slight tension
  • Place KeragentrixTM on wound with a slight margin overlap
  • Secure with surgical glue, staples, skin clips or sutures to hold KeraGENtrixTM firmly in contact with wound surface
  • Apply an antimicrobial dressing as a precaution against infection
  • Apply abdominal swabs and crepe bandages or any suitable absorptive layer under light tension

24 hours post KeraGENtrixTM application

  • Do not remove the antimicrobial dressing
  • Do not get the dressing wet
  • Do not move the covered area more than necessary

 24 to 36 hours post KeraGENtrixTM application

  • Remove the covering antimicrobial dressing to expose KeraGENtrixTM

If KeraGENtrixTM is adherent and no fluid accumulation is present, DO NOT REMOVE, rewrap with the antimicrobial dressing

If KeraGENtrixTM is loose, but the underlying tissue is still viable remove any non-purulent fluid, rewrap the antimicrobial dressing and observe in 24 hours for adherence

If KeraGENtrixTM is loose and there is purulent fluid, remove purulent non-adherent areas and use topical antimicrobial therapy to reduce bacterial contamination

KeraGENtrixTM should peel away from healed tissue following 10 – 14 days.

Contraindications:

  • Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to bovine collagen
  • Clinically diagnosed infected wounds
  • KeraGENtrixTM will not adhere to non-viable tissue
