Collagen Wound Dressing
Accelerates wound healing*
Fields of application
Suprasorb® C is intended to be used as a dressing for accelerating wound healing and/or reducing the size of the wound.
- diabetic ulcers
- pressure ulcers
- venous or mixed vascular ulcers
- surgical wounds healing by secondary intention
- Supports wound healing.
- Reduces factors which inhibit wound healing
- Promotes and accelerates the formation of granulation tissue
- In the case of slight or, in the absence of wound secretion, we recommend Suprasorb C is moistened before application with saline or Ringer’s solution.
- If Suprasorb C is not applied after opening the primary container, it should no longer be used.
- It is not possible to resterilise the Suprasorb C.
Do not use in clinically infected areas, on extremely exuding wounds or in dry necrosis. The product may not be used in the presence of known allergies to one or several of its components.
In very rare cases, side effects in the group of allergic disorders may occur. In very rare cases wound infection or pain or maceration of the peri-wound skin (especially in highly exuding wounds) are described in the literature during the use of Modern Wound Management dressings.
Interactions with other Preparations: Suprasorb C should not be combined with antiseptics which release chlorine (e.g. chloramine), with albumin-precipitating substances (tannic acid, silver nitrate) or caustics (iodine tincture) which change proteins. Disinfectants and tanning preparations are not to be applied in conjunction with Suprasorb C.

Suprasorb C Collagen Wound Dressing has a porous structure with highly pronounced capillary activity, enabling it to absorb fluid. This physical property with the continuous absorption of exudate results in the intake of cell debris (such as necrotic tissue and fibrinous coating) as well as inflammation inducing proteases and cytokines. Thereby the formation of granulation tissue is supported and accelerated. Immigration of fibroblasts is induced and collagen synthesis is stimulated. During the granulation stage and at the beginning of the epithelisation stage, the continuous supply of the defect with high grade collagen supports the new formation of the body's own collagen fibrils and fibres. The repair of the wound base supports the necessary proliferation and the migration of epidermal cells. This assists wound healing.*
The Suprasorb C Collagen Wound Dressing consists of collagen from calf skin.
Dressing change interval
Changes of dressing and reapplication of Suprasorb C will depend on the circumstances. If required, Suprasorb C can be easily soaked off and removed with saline solution.
Unless otherwise advised by the clinician, Suprasorb C is cut to the size and shape required. In the case of heavily exudating wounds, the dressing is changed daily or several times a day.
How to apply
- Wound Preparation: Cleanse wound thoroughly. The surrounding skin should be clean and dry.
- Application of the Wound Dressing:
- Open the sterile packaging and remove the dressing under aseptic conditions.
- After wound cleansing, Suprasorb C is cut to the size and shape required and usually applied dry - with the side facing downwards in the pack being applied to the wound.
- In the case of slight or, in the absence of wound secretion, we recommend Suprasorb C are moistened before application with saline or Ringer’s solution.
- Pressing down the Suprasorb C gently promotes contact with the wound surface. Even small sections of wounds should be covered.
- Suprasorb C should remain on the wound in a moist condition, a combination with other products from the moist wound treatment system is possible (e.g. Suprasorb H Hydrocolloid Wound Dressing).
