Prevention is Better Than Cure

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.

The first step in the treatment of Surgical Site Complications is their prevention.

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.
