Gas plasma shows promising results in the treatment of non-healing wounds

Renowned for its ability to successfully treat non-healing wounds, the Adtec SteriPlas is a must have for any dermatology and wound care departments.

This 61-year-old patient with a long-term venous ulcer was stalled from healing and present with Klebsiella oxytoca and Enterobacter cloacae. The patient went through a short treatment programme with our gas plasma medical device to achieve exceptional results. Figures (a) - (b) shows the visual changes of the ulcer throughout the short course of treatment with the Adtec SteriPlas.

Figure (a) shows the patient's ulcer at the start of the treatment
Figure (b) shows after 7 applications of our gas plasma.
Figure (c) shows after 11 treatments of our gas plasma.

At the end of the treatment programme, swabs which would normally have shown signs of bacteria were now sterile, allowing the patient to further progress into full healing.

Surgical site infections treated with the Adtec SteriPlas

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are still a severe complication after cardiac surgery with a mortality estimated range of up to 40% of cases. These post-operative wounds are generally associated with longer hospital stay and the delayed or inadequate therapeutic measures can lead to avoidable hospital costs for the healthcare system. The significant cost burden on the hospital for a single SSI case is €36,000. 1

It has already been shown that the Adtec SteriPlas is effective due to its increased penetration depth in SSIs to defeat bacteria even under a layer of biofilm independently to their resistance profile. This includes multi-resistant bacteria that have shown little or no response to antibiotics previously. In combination with advanced negative pressure wound treatment (aNPWT), the Adtec SteriPlas has been praised as a “tissue saving approach” offering patients a favourable treatment method for these complicated and chronic wounds compared to conventional treatment therapies. 2

Studies conducted using the Adtec SteriPlas have shown a significant decrease in the mortality rate coupled with accelerated healing. Patients with infected drivelines such as those with left ventricular assist devices have healed in as quick as 1 week, and patients with sternal SSIs have healed in as quick as 6 days. 2,3

The table above shows Dr H. Rotering’s recent data presented at the Chirurgie 2019 conference. The table explains that patients with infected drivelines have healed in as quick as 1 minute.

Both patients and doctors have praised the Adtec SteriPlas for its exceptional ability at delivering promising results leading to healing.

Promising results for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers using the Adtec SteriPlas

We are excited to show you a recent conference poster presented at the BSAC Spring 2019 conference, submitted by Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The poster shows the promising results of the using the Adtec SteriPlas on diabetic foot ulcers that are stalled by biofilm. The SteriPlas “is postulated as an alternative for antibiotics for patients where antibiotic therapy is difficult (due to resistance or adverse effects) or as an adjunct treatment for patients with chronic wounds including those with biofilms”.
