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”.

Adtec Healthcare reports new case studies on the successful treatment of long-term chronic ulcers.

Adtec Healthcare reports the successful wound management of patients with long term chronic ulcers at 2 hospitals in Germany and Switzerland. Some of these results are included in case studies on the website. The patients had been suffering from long term chronic ulcers where all other treatments had failed. Treatment with Adtec SteriPlas gas plasma managed the infection and the ulcers progressed to complete healing. Following these encouraging case studies results, it is necessary to do a randomized controlled clinical trial to prove the clinical efficacy and benefits.
