The quantitative study of the use of dextranomer in the management of infected wounds.

Open wounds using quantitative cultures and dextranomer were analyzed. Dextranomer has been shown to be an extremely effective local wound care agent, provided that the wound has an adequate blood supply and complete removal of the used dextranomer is achieved. Under these circumstances, dextranomer provides a rapid and effective means for the treatment of open, exudative wounds.
