Endoform® Antimicrobial dressings support the skin’s natural collagen structure and guard against bacterial colonization with a solution utilizing 0.3% ionic silver. The formula won’t result in cell death, provides a wide range of antimicrobial protection and can be worn for up to seven days.
Endoform Antimicrobial – Fenestrated is available in a range of sizes to suit all wound types:
How it Works
Endoform® works as an extracellular matrix to address and help the wound progress through all stages of the healing process. Serving as a natural collagen scaffold, this dressing promotes tissue growth in both acute and chronic wounds and helps wounds get through the inflammatory phase, which can limit and stall healing.
Endoform® integrates with the skin’s extracellular matrix (ECM), which supports the cells and assists their essential processes. To do this:
• Endoform® is composed of 85% collagen and 15% secondary molecules involved in tissue structure, adhesion and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), all components naturally occurring in the body’s tissue.
• Endoform® assists with epithelial and fibroblast penetration. Through its biologically natural, lightly processed, porous format, Endoform® helps stabilize, organize, correct and remodel new tissue.
Endoform® Antimicrobial builds off this foundation, preventing biofilms and using a formula that’s non-cytotoxic to dermal cells. This combination offers sustained, extended antimicrobial protection for up to seven days — exceeding the three-day average of other silver-impregnated collagen dressings. This combination is less toxic to fibroblasts, lessens infection risks and promotes healing.
Endoform® is designed to help heal:
• Full and partial thickness wounds
• Pressure ulcers
• Venous ulcers
• Diabetic ulcers
• Chronic vascular ulcers
• Tunneled and deep wounds
• Traumatic wounds, including first- and second-degree burns
• Exudating wounds
• Surgical wounds, including donor sites and skin grafts
To apply Endoform® Antimicrobial:
1. Clean the wound bed
2. Cut the dressing to fit the wound bed. Multiple sheets may be needed.
3. Place the dressing into the wound, and moisten it with a saline solution or exudate.
4. Apply a secondary dressing, including a hydrogel, gauze, compression sleeve or negative pressure wound therapy.
5. Change the secondary dressing and assess tissue quality every 72 hours.
Note: Re-apply when Endoform® has been incorporated into the wound bed. Endoform® does not need to be removed during dressing changes.
