Polyurethane prevents plaster pressure sores

Date:2011年2月24日 09:22

Placing polyurethane foam in contact with the skin of the heel inside a plaster cast prevents the formation of pressure sores, according to Italian researchers.

In their study, two of 56 patients with sore skin developed a pressure sore having received polyurethane foam, compared with 21 of 49 in a group without polyurethane foam.

The authors said: “Using polyurethane foam to prevent sores even inside plaster casts in populations at most risk is a simple and cost-effective strategy and decreases the discomfort, pain and risks in these patients.”
