CASES: Case 1, a 74-year-old diabetic female was treated for bilateral VLUs with micropore dressing for several months, which she noted to be painless and convenient. Case 2, a 49-year-old housewife with a solitary VLU was treated with micropore dressing, leading to good treatment results and high satisfaction.
CONCLUSION: VLUs managed by the micropore dressing resulted in reduced pain and ease of use during dressing changes, as well as noticeable reduction in wound and periwound area maceration. The use of this type of dressing in these cases shows encouraging results and provides a desirable management option. More robust clinical studies are necessary to establish this.
