THE ONLY DRESSING PROVEN TO REDUCE HEALING TIME OF LEG ULCERS, DIABETIC FOOT ULCERS AND PRESSURE ULCERS.

URGOSTART PLUS HAS A UNIQUE MODE OF ACTION

UrgoStart Plus is composed of a unique TLC-NOSF Healing Matrix, which acts locally on the wound, on the two key factors significantly impairing wound healing:

WHY USE URGOSTART PLUS RANGE?

  • All UrgoStart dressings are now recommended by NICE for venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers, giving you confidence in the dressing suitability for your patients (7)

  • With its unique TLC-NOSF* Healing Matrix (NOSF* impregnated in a TLC healing matrix) UrgoStart is the only local treatment proven to reduce healing time (1,2,3,4)

  • The sooner the UrgoStart range is initiated the better the healing outcomes for the patient (5)

  • UrgoStart range significantly improves patients' quality of life (2,3)

  • UrgoStart Plus range acts from Day 1 to complete healing, whatever the wound healing phase, simplifying treatment for clinicians and saving costs for healthcare systems (6)

URGOSTART PLUS RANGE PROPERTIES 

  • Absorption of exudate

  • Creation and maintenance of a moist wound environment that promotes healing

  • Atraumatic & pain free removal

  • Respect of peri-wound skin

  • Very conformable and easy to reposition

INDICATIONS 

UrgoStart Plus is indicated for all stages (from the desloughing stage to complete healing) of exuding wounds including leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and long standing acute wounds. 

FACTOR 1

Inhibition of excess matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)

FACTOR 2

Promotion of angiogenesis

URGOSTART IS AVAILABLE IN A FULL RANGE FOR YOUR PATIENTS

UrgoStart Plus Pad and UrgoStart Plus Border also contain poly-absorbent fibres which bind, trap and retain exudate, slough and debris present in the wound, keeping it clean throughout healing.

CONTRAINDICATIONS 

  • In order not to delay any optimal treatment, UrgoStart treatment range is contraindicated in cancerous wounds and fistula wounds which may reveal a deep abscess

  • Do not use when there is a known sensitivity to UrgoStart dressings

  • UrgoStart Plus Pad and UrgoStart Plus Border facilitate the management of minor bleeding wounds. However, they should not be used as a surgical sponge for heavily bleeding wound
