Background. The purpose of the present study was to compare the performance of the Hydrogel dressing with that of traditional dressings in the treatment of wounds with skin defects.
Material and methods. 32 patients with traumatic skin defects were included in the study. 16 were treated with Hydrogel dressings, and 16 with traditional dressings. We compared the time required for complete epithelialization and the level of pain experienced on removal.
Results. The trial dressing demonstrated faster healing time (ave. 5-6 days faster). The patients from the experimental group experienced less during dressing changes.
Conclusions. We found that dressings demonstrated significantly faster epithelialization time in comparison with traditional wound dressings. The application of Hydrogel dressings enhanced patient comfort.
