PROMOGRAN™ Matrix Wound Dressing
PROMOGRAN™ Matrix Wound Dressing

A Clinically Proven Combination

PROMOGRAN™ Matrix Wound Dressing is comprised of a sterile, freeze dried composite of 45% oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) and 55% collagen.
 
Optimum Wound Environment
PROMOGRAN™ Matrix Wound Dressing maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This environment is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelization and rapid wound healing.

Maintains an optimum wound-healing environment

In the presence of exudate, PROMOGRAN™ Matrix transforms into a soft, conformable, biodegradable gel. This allows contact with all areas of the wound.

PROMOGRAN™ Matrix maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelialization and rapid wound healing.

Studies have shown that the moist wound environment, which PROMOGRAN™ Matrix helps optimize, promotes healing1.

Product description
PROMOGRAN™ Matrix Wound Dressing is an advanced wound care device comprised of a sterile, freeze dried composite of 45% oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) and 55% collagen. In the presence of exudate the PROMOGRAN™ Matrix transforms into a soft, conformable, biodegradable gel, and thus allows contact with all areas of the wound.
 
PROMOGRAN™ Matrix maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This environment is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelialization and rapid wound healing. PROMOGRAN™ Matrix is a primary dressing that can be cut to fit wound with sterile scissors and used in combination with either a semi-occlusive or non-occlusive secondary dressing. Prior to application in dry wounds saline solution should be used to hydrate PROMOGRAN™ Matrix.

Indications for Use

PROMOGRAN™ Matrix is intended for the management of exuding wounds including:
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Pressure injuries
  • Ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies
  • Full-thickness & partial thickness wounds
  • Donor sites and other bleeding surface wounds
  • Abrasions
  • Traumatic wounds healing by secondary intention
  • Dehisced surgical wounds
 
PROMOGRAN™ Matrix may be used under compression therapy with healthcare professional supervision. Precautions PROMOGRAN™ Matrix may be used when visible signs of infection are present in the wound area only when proper medical treatment addresses the underlying cause. Contraindications PROMOGRAN™ Matrix is not indicated for wounds with active vasculitis, third-degree burns, or patients with known sensitivity to ORC or collagen.
 
Before use, physicians should review complete risk information and essential prescribing information which can be found in the Product Instructions for Use. To order any of the products listed below, please call 1-800-275-4524.
 

Applications

Wound Bed Preparation
Prepare wound bed per your standard wound care protocol and debride when necessary. Wound bed should be clear of any visual signs of infection.
 
Application
  • For optimal effect, apply PROMOGRAN™ Matrix directly to the whole wound bed.
  • For a wound with low or no exudate apply PROMOGRAN™ Matrix and hydrate with saline solution. This will initiate the transformation of the PROMOGRAN® Dressing into a gel matrix.
  • After hydration, through exposure to wound exudate or saline, the PROMOGRAN™ Matrix gel will intimately come into contact with the wound surface.
  • The biodegradable PROMOGRAN™ gel matrix is naturally absorbed into the body over time.
  • In order to maintain a moist wound healing environment PROMOGRAN™ Matrix must be covered with a semi-occlusive dressing (e.g. BIOCLUSIVE™ Plus Transparent Film Dressing, TIELLE™ Hydropolymer Foam Dressings or TIELLE™ Plus Hydropolymer Adhesive Dressing) or a non-occlusive secondary dressing and fixed to the skin with a non-irritating tape.
  • After initial application, reapply PROMOGRAN™ Matrix to the wound up to every 72 hours depending upon the amount of exudate. It is not necessary to remove any residual PROMOGRAN™ Matrix during dressing changes.
