Resumen

RUEDA LOPEZ, Justo et al. Treatment of skin lesions with a modified copolymer: observational clinical study. Gerokomos [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.2, pp.109-114. ISSN 1134-928X.

Objective:

To evaluate the effectiveness an acrylic copolymer with a modified amino group, in wound healing of diverse aetiology skin lesions in Primary Healthcare setting.

Methods:

We performed a prospective, observational, open study with repeated measures on a cohort of patients with skin lesions of different aetiology. We monitored them for 4 weeks or until the wounds healed. The dressing procedure was performed every 3 days, and involved wound cleaning, application of the evaluation product, coverage with a tulle gras dressing, application of hydrophilic gauze and fixation with a non-woven adhesive bandage.

Results:

Of the 16 lesions initially included, 3 were lost during the study, leaving a final sample of 13 lesions (5 second-degree burns, 3 traumatic lesions, 5 chronic lesions). 35.7% of the sample were women, and the mean age of the patients was 64.71 ± 19.37 years. 11 out of 14 lesions healed within 4 weeks, with a total wound-healing rate of 99.4%, and 2 lesions healed at day 32. The mean healing time was 16 ± 22.03 days.

Conclusions:

Despite the small sample size and wound heterogeneity, the results have shown a high healing rate and a good behavior in pain management.
