PROMOGRAN PRISMA® Matrix Wound Dressing
PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix is comprised of a sterile, freeze dried composite of 44% oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC), 55% collagen and 1% silver-ORC. Silver-ORC contains 25% w/w ionically bound silver, a well-known antimicrobial agent.
Optimum wound environment
PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix maintains a physiologically moist microenvironment at the wound surface. This environment is conducive to granulation tissue formation, epithelization and optimal wound healing. What is the role of silver in PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix? The dressing contains ionically bound silver, a well-known antimicrobial agent1.
Reduction in Wounds Displaying Signs of Infection
In a 14-week RCT comparing PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix (n=25), with Control (n=15), the number of patients withdrawn from the study due to infection was significantly greater in the control group 0% VS. 31% (p=0.012)1 (n=40)
79% VS. 43% For the Standard of care (rate of healing was characterized as >50% reduction in wound size)1
What is ORC?
Cellulose is a major component of all plants. Once oxidized, ORC (Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose) is completely bioresorbable, and readily degrades through fluid absorption and subsequent gelling.
Maintains an optimum wound-healing environment
In the presence of exudate, PROMOGRAN™ Plus Matrix transforms into a soft, conformable, biodegradable gel, allowing contact with all areas of the wound.

cellulose (ORC), collagen and silver-ORC, (a compound of Silver and ORC). In the presence of exudate the PROMOGRAN PRISMA™ Matrix transforms
into a soft and conformable, biodegradable gel, this allows contact with all areas of the wound. Saline or Ringer’s solution should be used to hydrate PROMOGRAN PRISMA® Matrix on dry wounds.
- Diabetic ulcers
- Venous ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Ulcers caused by mixed vascular aetiologies
- Traumatic and surgical wounds
PROMOGRAN™ Plus Matrix is a primary dressing that can be cut to fit the wound with scissors and must be covered with either gauze, a non-adhering or a hydropolymer dressing in order to maintain a moist wound healing environment.References
