Sorbsan Ribbon

Sorbsan’s properties make it ideal for managing cavity wounds; the fibres absorb exudate and form a gel which fully contours the wound. The gelled fibres can be irrigated away from the wound with normal saline 0.9% for pain free removal 1,2. Sorbsan Ribbon dressings come with a plastic probe to help assess the wound before dressing.

When to use Sorbsan Ribbon:

Sorbsan Ribbon may be used in smaller, wet cavity wounds such as sinus’ where there is a moderate to high level of exudate. If the wound is not producing high enough exudate levels to gel the Sorbsan dressing’s fibres, it may be appropriate to change to a different dressing type.

Suitable for the management of abscesses and sinus’ resulting from:

  • Pilonidal sinus’
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Post-operative wounds
  • Fungating lesions

Sorbsan Ribbon is also suitable for the management of bleeding cavity wounds:

  • Following toe-nail avulsions
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Donor and graft sites
  • Traumatic wounds
