Abstract

A hydropolymer dressing (Tielle) and a hydrocolloid dressing (Granuflex) were compared in a randomised controlled clinical study involving 100 patients with leg ulcers and 99 patients with pressure sores in the community. Statistically significant differences in favour of the hydropolymer dressing were detected for dressing leakage and odour production, but no statistically significant differences were recorded in the number of patients with either leg ulcers or pressure sores who healed in each treatment group.
