Smith & Nephew, the global medical technology business, announces the US introduction of DURAFIBER Ag antimicrobial gelling fiber dressing. This new offering in the DURAFIBER portfolio combines the highly absorbent, gelling fiber filler dressing with the benefits of silver (Ag). The addition of this broad-spectrum antimicrobial provides clinicians with a different approach to address bacterial contamination posed by medium to heavily exuding wounds.

"DURAFIBER Ag is strong when wet - a key attribute for ease of use for gelling fiber dressings," says Robin Carlstein, Interim President North America Advanced Wound Management. "US Clinicians will now have the effective exudate management and anti-shrinkage properties of the DURAFIBER dressings with the addition of a broad-spectrum antimicrobial. The DURAFIBER portfolio facilitates clean, cost-effective, one-piece dressing removal continuing on the Smith & Nephew commitment to deliver consistent clinical and economic benefits for wound care."
