Where is Ligasano® Used?
Ligasano® is for external use only and is not an implant. Ligasano® White is used as a wound dressing and for treatment of inflammation. Ligasano® Green is used to debride a wound, remove necrotic tissue and proud flesh. Ligasano® is used in the following instances:
• on all animals – horse, cattle, dogs, cats, sheep, wildlife and birds.
• for the treatment of burns, bites, abscesses, sinuses, degloving
wounds, any suppurating septic injury, wing injuries and as a post
operative wound dressing.
• for inflammation and after work lower leg wraps.
Ligasano® must not have direct contact with internal organs or mucosa.
Ligasano® White - sheet - sterile Here a short form of the significant modes of action of LIGASANO® white:
Rapidly falling pressure tension Wound treatment - Reduction of pressure, promotion of granulation, reduced counter pressure to the new regenerated granulation tissue.
Prevention - Anatomic adaption to body contures. Mechanical stimulus Wound treatment - Because of its surface structure (the structure of the material is perceived by the tissue) LIGASANO® white promotes the perfusion and activates the self-cleaning („hydrogel, produced naturally in the body“). The intermittent negative pressure, which is caused by the pumping effect in connection with conscious and unconscious body movements, produces a mechanical stimulus, too. Prevention - Because of its surface structure (the structure of the material is perceived by the tissue) LIGASANO® white promotes the perfusion, nonvital dermal skin cells are removed automatically (peeling). Controlled absorption effect Wound treatment - Since only surplus exudate is absorbed, LIGASANO® white does not dry out the wound. Depending on the thickness of the material, an intermittent negative pressure occurs. Prevention - Works effectively against maceration of the skin. Permeability to steam Wound treatment - In the case of hardly exudating wounds LIGASANO® white may adhere by drying up exudate. At burns this is sometimes desired (mechanical debridement). Prevention - Works effectively against maceration of the skin.
