Deslougthing UrgoClean menu description  



UrgoClean rope and pad packs

UrgoClean works through a gentle and pain-free desloughing action, trapping and binding slough with its poly-absorbent fibres followed by a simple one piece removal of the pad or rope.

The TLC healing matrix, clinically proven on 54,000 patients, promotes healing and enables the dressing removal to be pain-free. (3)

Remember, slough can return so make sure the wound is completely free of slough before changing to UrgoStart or UrgoTul / UrgoTul Absorb Border and reduce the risk of slough returning
