Novel Use of Tubular Dressing for Lower Leg Wound Treatment – A Case Series.

In their poster presented at the Society of Advanced Wound Care, more commonly referred to as SAWC, five edematous patients, between 69-84 years of age were managed with products that included EdemaWear. The patients were evaluated over 34-63 days.

The poster authors Denise Gilmore and Kristina Fawcett are specialists working at a community wound and hyperbaric oxygen clinic located in Glendale, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. The clinic is a multidisciplinary group that includes a physician group in internal medicine, podiatrist specializing in wound care and a plastic surgeon. Their typical patients include venous/arterial/mixed vascular disease, diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers.

“Here are the presented case studies for five patients that were observed to have improvement in skin, reduction in edema, and improved wound healing times.”
