Desloughing dressing

UrgoClean

UrgoClean

A sterile, non-adherent, slough-trapping, poly-absorbent fibre dressing with the TLC healing matrix to promote wound healing and enable pain-free dressing changes. The slough trapping fibres (poly-absorbent) bind and trap the slough within the dressing, providing safe and effective desloughing. UrgoClean is available in a pad and a rope format.

UrgoClean Ag

UrgoClean Ag

A sterile, absorbent dressing made of polyabsorbent fibres and the non-adherent TLC-Ag healing matrix, which is impregnated with silver particles. The TLC-Ag healing matrix promotes wound healing and provides pain-free care and dressing changes. The polyabsorbent fibres in the dressing pad cleanse the wound from slough, exudate and bacteria. The dressing is designed to disrupt and breakdown biofilm, and prevent its reformation.

UrgoStart Plus Border

UrgoStart Plus Border

A polyabsorbent fibre pad containing a protease inhibitor (TLC-NOSF Healing Matrix), polyabsorbent fibres, a superabsorbent layer and a silicone border with waterproof backingThe TLC-NOSF Healing Matrix inhibits matrix metalloproteinases and promotes the formation of new blood vessels. The polyabsorbent fibres bind, trap and retain exudate, slough and debris. NICE 2019 medical technology guidance (MTG42) states that evidence supports the case for adopting UrgoStart dressings to treat diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers.
