How Does The PROMOGRAN PRISMA® Matrix Wound Dressing Work?

PROMOGRAN PRISMA® wound dressing is a matrix that works by binding and inactivating proteases such as MMPs and Elastase to help rebalance the wound microenvironment, while providing low level silver to help prevent infection.1-2  By reducing activity of both MMPs and Elastase wound surface area can be reduced.

Promogran Prisma dressings are indicated for the management of all wounds healing by secondary intent which are clear of necrotic tissue including:

Diabetic ulcers
• Venous ulcers
• Pressure ulcers
• Ulcers caused by mixed vascular aetiologies
• Traumatic and surgical wounds
