Mr B, an 82-year-old, had a diabetic leg ulcer. With a history of type 2 diabetes, myocardial infarction and necrobiosis lipodica, in addition to obesity, his wound was proving hard to heal and had been present for 7 months.
Mr B was feeling low about this, and finding it difficult to attend clinic appointments for dressing and bandage changes.
Mr B’s wound had been managed according to best practice using an Inadine dressing, Zetuvit pad and Ready Wrap compression.
His wound measured 2.6×2.4cm and consisted of 70% slough and 30% granulation tissue. The skin surrounding the wound was red and dry as a result of necrobiosis lipodica. Mr B reported wound related pain of 3 (on a scale where 1=no pain; 10=worst pain).
The wound was cleansed and 2 sprays of LQD® Spray Wound Care applied to the wound. This was left to dry for 2 minutes so a primary dressing could form. Zetuvit padding was then applied, followed by Ready Wrap compression wrap.
On first review on day 8, the wound was covered in 80% epithelial tissue, 10% granulation tissue and 10% slough. On second review on day 22, the wound had reduced in size, measuring 1.3×1.6cm, and consisted of 90% epithelialisation and 10% granulation tissue.
On day 43, the wound had healed and no pain was experienced by Mr B.
LQD® Spray Wound Care resulted in the complete healing of a complex, chronic wound, much to the amazement of Mr B.
