Mepilex Border Post-Op is designed for exuding wounds. It is intended for acute wounds, such as surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions. It is optimized for post-op use and blood absorption. The Flex technology provides very high flexibility, making it ideal for use over joints, such as hips and knees4.
Each dressing size is optimized based on needed absorbency, flexibility and stay-on-ability. Sizes 20cm and larger have an absorbent pad for highly exuding wounds and the smaller sizes have an absorbent pad for moderate to highly exuding wounds.
Frequency of change
Mepilex Border Post-Op may be left in place for several days depending on the condition of the wound and the surrounding skin, or as indicated by accepted clinical practice.
