Diabetic foot ulcer healing with a silver dressing combined with soft silicone technology

2014, Vol 1, No 1, pages 27–29

Diabetic foot ulcers present a wound-healing challenge; infection, exudate, and pain need to be managed appropriately, preferably with a dressing that can manage one or more factors to prevent delayed healing and reduced quality of life. This case report outlines the management of a man presenting with a diabetic foot ulcer at a clinic in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Wound healing was successfully achieved 7 weeks after the initial clinic visit with Mepilex® Ag dressing (Mölnlycke Health Care) combined with Safetec® (Mölnlycke Health Care) soft silicone technology.
