The goals for optimum donor site dressing for Split-thickness skin grafts (STSG) is to improve healing and reduce healing time.
BloodSTOP iX is made of plant-based nanocellulose hemostat matrix that turns into a gel upon contact with blood, sealing the wound in a moist environment with no complications and irritations.
There was evidence of neo-epithelialization with the extremity where BloodSTOP iX was applied. The study showed that BloodSTOP iX is an effective option for wound care to improve healing without increased complications.
BloodSTOP iX was placed directly on all donor sites (10). On the 7th day after the tangential burn excision and STSG for their deep partial- and full-thickness burn wounds, the extremity with BloodSTOP iX showed improved wound healing and reduced healing time.
