A CLINICAL EVALUATION OF URGOSTART BORDER
IN THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC WOUNDS

Over 200,000 people have
a chronic wound in the
United Kingdom and most
of these are treated in the
community and the effect
of having a wound on the
patient’s quality of life can
be massive. Chronic wound
healing is characterised by
a prolonged inflammatory
phase with elevated
proteases and inflammatory
cytokines present.
UrgoStart Border has
the benefits of TLCNSOF
(Technology
Lipido Colloid - Nano
Oligo-Saccharide Factor)
combined with an absorbent
polyurethane foam pad
and superabsorbent layer.
It is covered with a vapour
permeable showerproof
outer polyurethane film with
silicone adhesive edges.
It is indicated for exuding
chronic wounds.
The aim of this study is to
evaluate the effectiveness
of UrgoStart Border
on patients with chronic
wounds.

Following assessment by the Tissue
Viability Specialist Nurse patients
with wounds with moderate to high
levels of exudate received wound
management using UrgoStart
Border. Patients agreeing to
participate gave written consent.
All clinicians who would be applying
the dressings were offered specific
guidance on the recommendations
for use of the dressing, in
accordance with the indications
in the product insert leaflet and
patients were treated in accordance
with the instructions for use.
The wounds selected included leg
ulcers, pressure ulcers and dehisced
surgical wounds.
Wounds were measured and
photographed.
The following outcomes were
recorded:
• Ease of application and removal
• Conformability
• Patient comfort during wear
• Patient comfort on dressing
removal
• Condition of the surrounding skin
• Changes to the wound bed
• Ability to handle exudate
