Building on the AQUACEL® Ag Surgical platform is a next-generation post-op dressing. AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Surgical, which combines ConvaTec’s proprietary Hydrofiber Technology and hydrocolloid technologies with our NEW MORE THAN SILVER™ Technology - a unique antimicrobial formula which enhances the power of ionic silver.
Despite increasing infection control practices and advanced preventative steps, like ventilation, surgical technique, and sterilization methods, post-operative Surgical Site Complications (SSCs) have a huge impact across all surgeries and remain a significant cause of morbidity, prolonged hospitalization, and death.1
Your post-op dressing selection can be the difference between healthy healing and an infected surgical site.2
AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Surgical helps improve outcomes by creating an optimum healing environment and providing fast broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against SSI causing pathogens.
AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Surgical has a critical difference: a dynamic blend of our Hydrofiber® and MORE THAN SILVER™ technology.
Hydrofiber® Technology is an interactive wound contact layer specially engineered to optimize moist wound healing, which is combined with MORE THAN SILVER™ Technology. Hydrofiber® Technology is proven to demonstrate limiting levels of inflammation, which improves the healing process, resulting in good scar quality.3
AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Surgical with MORE THAN SILVER™ Technology enables a faster reduction in SSI causing bacteria when compared to just ionic silver. MORE THAN SILVER™ is a unique formulation of ionic silver together with a surfactant and metal chelating agent.4 These three components work synergistically to enhance the antimicrobial efficacy of ionic silver for:
From orthopedic surgery to c-sections, vascular surgery to cardiothoracic surgery, and more, you can rely upon AQUACEL® Ag Advantage Surgical to manage bacteria, minimize the risk of infection, and create an optimal healing environment.
