Mölnlycke takes a stand for diabetic foot care at ISDF 2023
Lower-extremity and diabetic foot wound care take center stage at International Symposium on the Diabetic Foot (ISDF), The Hauge, 10-13 May 2023
One of the most challenging side effects of diabetes is lower extremity problems. And addressing these challenges, the International Symposium on the Diabetic Foot (ISDF) takes place once every four years, shining a light on these chronic wounds.
As the largest event of its kind in the world, 2023’s ISDF is packed with evidence, knowledge sharing and products that support DFU care as well as leading experts in the field and as many as 1,500 healthcare professionals as attendees.
Mölnlycke at ISDF 2023
As leader in chronic wound management, of which DFUs are a part, Mölnlycke is deeply engaged with the DFU community. In keeping with our leadership role in this space, we will attend the event in the Hague, Netherlands as a gold sponsor.
Mölnlycke’s presence will showcase our DFU management offering and product portfolio in our booth along with relevant clinical learning and digital tools. We will also host a 60-minute symposium on May 11th to continue leading the charge on DFU and chronic wound care education.

Step 1: Assess the wound
With assistance of Mölnlycke Wound Support, you can define the wound characteristics and get automatic wound assessment, including measurements, easily summarised in a pdf. You will also receive relevant treatment considerations and Mölnlycke® dressing selection guide as well as information on wound care products and a comprehensive knowledge base.
Step 2: Treat the wound
Oxygenate: Granulox is a topical haemoglobin spray with proven benefits, that by means of diffusion provides oxygen to wounds with poor blood supply. It transports oxygen from the surrounding air down to the wound bed to accelerate the healing process.
Protect: Optimise your wound treatment and prevention with Mepilex Border dressings, delivering clinically-proven better outcomes with less pain for patients. Depending on the challenge you’re facing Mepilex Border dressings are available in many shapes and for many uses.
Discover how you can access wound care guidance and information on Mepilex Border dressings instantly via my.molnlycke.com.
Step 3: Manage deep cavaties
Explore the Exufiber Effect
Highly exuding wounds are challenging to treat. Clinicians may see exudate pooling, slough and delayed healing due to the presence of biofilm. Patients may feel pain, embarrassment and anxiety from leakage. That is why we are looking at gelling fibres differently. Providing a wound healing solution that clinicians want to see and that patients can feel.
Step 4: Promote Healing
The clinical aims of dNPWT include Removal of exudate and fluid: dNPWT can be a valuable adjunct to supporting healing in complex and slow to heal wounds. Optimise wound healing: improving wound bed preparation that promotes healing. Granulation tissue formation: increase microvascular blood supply and promote formation of granulation tissue.
5. Enhance clinical learning
Clinical Learning Hub is the home of educational needs for all levels of healthcare professionals and providers. Covering key healthcare topics, from wound management to peri-operative solutions, designed to help you and your teams advance your clinical knowledge and get the best outcomes for your patients.
Microworld is a fun, interactive and engaging educational platform with content tailored to improve your understanding of wound care.
During the symposium, sponsored by Mölnlycke Health Care, an international expert panel will discuss the causes of chronic hypoxia in the diabetes-related foot ulcer and the clinical challenges that this condition poses. The panel will also present an evidence-based review of how topical oxygen therapy can be effectively implemented as a means of addressing those challenges and promoting wound healing.
