ESTARLICH COROMINAS, Jordi; ALEXANDRE LOZANO, Sandra  y  ROSELL MORENO, Carme. Effectiveness of transparent acrylate polymer film in the prevention and treatment of skin lesions. Bibliographic review. Gerokomos [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.3, pp.147-156.  Epub 18-Nov-2019. ISSN 1134-928X.


To obtain available evidence on the efficacy of transparent film of acrylate polymer or non-irritating barrier product (PBNI) in the prevention and treatment of skin lesions.


Review of the literature based on the search of randomized clinical trials and observational studies on PBNI in PubMed, CINAHL and CUIDEN published between 2009 and 2018, since there is a previous systematic review.


Two studies showed reduction of cutaneous complications by applying PBNI before the placement of fixation dressings for central venous catheters. Regarding the cutaneous complications of radiotherapy, one study observed that PBNI only helped to delay the intensity of pruritus. A work on the prevention and treatment of incontinence dermatitis found that PBNI are a good alternative to barrier creams, since they have better acceptability and cost less to apply and remove. In the area of excess exudate and its complications in the periulceral zone, two studies agreed on the effectiveness of PBNI to reduce the diameter of the surface, exudate and slough.


PBNI helps to prevent skin lesions caused by catheter dressings, in radiodermatitis they only help to reduce pruritus, in incontinence dermatitis they are an alternative to barrier creams, in the control of the complications of exudate in the periulceral zone in lower limb injuries are just as effective as creams with zinc.
