Anamnesis

Devastating leg injury occurred following a car accident. The limb was surgically treated and bandaged with a moisturising dressing. Re-bandaging was taking place daily and despite antibiotic medication and daily care, the soft tissue is necrotizing and produces unpleasant odour. After TraumaPet® gel Ag was introduced into the treatment as a step after bandaging, After the first application, the smell disappeared and after the third application, necrosis started to recede. In the subsequent days, tissue granulation and epithelisation took place.
