Wound sinuses are notoriously difficult to dress due to their depth and narrow width, and present the practitioner with a challenge in terms of dressing selection. Advadraw Spiral is a rapid capillary action dressing that is supplied in a pre-cut ribbon shape. It has a double-sided wound contact layer that makes it convenient and easy to use in patients with sinuses. An evaluation of this dressing was carried out using a wide selection of wound types, and the results indicate that Advadraw Spiral handles exudate well, promotes healing, and is comfortable to wear.
