Indications

COM 30 is used as a temporary covering on wound surfaces after necrectomies in cases of third-degree burns, infected third-degree burns, the covering of donor sites after dermal grafts have been taken, for treatment of decubitus ulcers, but also on other skin and subcutaneous defects and calf-ulcers. COM 30 must be applied with the mesh (textured layer) towards the defect.

In cases of a vascular occlusion, resulting in ischemisation of an extremity, the intrafascial pressure increases after vascular revascularisation and an occlusion of muscle bed develops – the so-called „compartment syndrome". It is an urgent condition where the revascularisation muscle oedema leads to compression within the space created by the fascia. An untreated condition would result in paralysis caused by compression of nerves, thrombosis caused by compression of the vascular system, and in the final phase it would be manifested by muscle necrosis.

It is acutely necessary to open the skin and the affected muscle beds by widely opening the fascia. But it results in a large temporarily open area that must be covered.
The COM – combined dressing fabric can be used to advantageously for this exact purpose.
