Extra-thin lipido-colloid absorbent dressing with adhesive border

Promoting healing and improving patients’ quality of life:

 

Pain-free and atraumatic dressing removal

A major benefit of TLC healing matrix (Technology Lipido-Colloid) is the non-adherence of the dressing allowing trauma-free removal from newly-formed tissue with no pain for the patient.

Composition

UrgoTul Lite Border is an extra-thin absorbent dressing with TLC and an adhesive border, comprised of:

  • A polyester mesh impregnated with hydrocolloid and petroleum jelly particles, and combined with a thin absorbent pad
  • A white protective polyurethane backing, coated with a high skin tolerance adhesive mass.

Mode of action

When in contact with wound exudate, UrgoTul Lite Border gels and creates a moist environment, promoting healing. UrgoTul Lite Border stimulates fibroblast proliferation and ensures non-adherence and pain-free dressing changes. The thin absorbent pad ensures drainage of exudate, protecting the peri-wound skin against maceration.

Contraindications

None.

 

Instructions for use

  • Clean the wound as per local protocol and rinse with normal saline.
  • If an antiseptic is first used, rinse the wound thoroughly with saline solution before applying UrgoTul Lite Border.
  • Dry the surrounding skin carefully.
  • Using the tabs, remove the protective films,
  • Apply UrgoTul Lite Border to the wound, with the central pad directly over the wound.
  • UrgoTul Lite Border should be changed every 2 to 4 days (up to 5 days) depending on the level of exudate and the clinical condition of the wound.

 

Precautions for use

  • As the lipido-colloïd layer of Urgotul Lite Border adheres to surgical gloves (latex), it is recommended to manipulate the dressing avoiding contact with the coated layer.
  • If clinical signs of local infection are noted, treatment can be changed to an antibacterial dressing of Urgo range (such as Urgotul Ag Lite Border), dependent on clinical judgment.
  • Discard any unused parts of the dressing.
  • Check that the sterility protector is intact before use.
  • Single-use, sterile and individual dressing: re-using a single-use product may lead to risks of infection.
  • Do not re-sterilise the dressing.

What is UrgoTul Lite Border?

UrgoTul Lite Border is an extra-thin absorbent dressing with TLC and an adhesive border, comprised of:

  • A polyester mesh impregnated with hydrocolloid and petroleum jelly particles, and combined with a thin absorbent pad
  • A white protective polyurethane backing, coated with a high skin tolerance adhesive mass.

How does UrgoTul Lite Border work?

When in contact with wound exudate, UrgoTul Lite Border gels and creates a moist environment, promoting healing. UrgoTul Lite Border stimulates fibroblast proliferation and ensures non-adherence and pain-free dressing changes. The thin absorbent pad ensures drainage of exudate, protecting the peri-wound skin against maceration.

What is the role of fibroblasts?

During wound healing, fibroblasts migrate within the wound area, proliferate and synthesize the extracellular matrix to form granulation tissue (newly formed tissue).
Fibroblasts are then differentiated in situ into myofibroblasts which bring the edges of the wound together due to their contractile properties.
TLC stimulates fibroblast proliferation which supports the healing process.
