Infected wounds:

How to reduce the bacterial load.

Bind and inactivate wound pathogens:

Cutimed Sorbact has proved beneficial not only in infected leg ulcers but also in stagnating wounds where bacterial colonisation hinders wound healing.


It effectively reduces the microbial load without using a chemically active agent and therefore avoids potential risks that accompany the use of common antimicrobials, such as cytotoxic effects or development of bacterial resistances. Instead it supports the natural wound healing process.


  • Apply swabs, round swabs, absorbent pads or gel dressings as primary dressings as needed regarding wound size, wound depth and exudate level.


Absorb high amounts of exudate:

In the early stages of wound healing high amounts of exudate can be experienced. Even more, in venous leg ulcers effective compression will start to reduce edema in the lower limb. This may result in even higher exudate levels.


  • Foam dressings can be used as secondary fixation for Cutimed Sorbact swabs or round swabs whenever superior absorption capacity or moist wound conditions are required.

  • Cutimed Sorbact Hydroactive combines bacteria-binding therapy with reliable exudate management. The dressing absorbs high amounts of exudate in its hydropolymer core. As the dressing remains water vapour permeable it prevents macerations.



  • Cutimed Siltec B provides high absorption. Its super absorber particles reliably retain fluid, even under compression. The dressing can be used as a secondary fixation for deep wounds and allows atraumatic dressing changes.





Compression remains a vital part of a patientís therapy in order to support the venous system. Products of choice:

  • if edema is present: Comprilan or Gelocast Compression Bandages
  • if no edema is present: JOBST UlcerCARE Compression System
