The use of Medihoney™ Antibacterial Wound Gel on surgical wounds post-CABG

Patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) operations frequently have surgical leg wounds where veins have been harvested for grafting. Dehiscence of these wounds due to local infection can be a problem. Patients are often older and frequently have a combination of other medical problems which may impact on the wound healing process. The use of Medihoney™ Antibacterial Wound Gel in this patient group demonstrated that it was an effective antibacterial agent that also had a positive impact on the patients’ quality of life through the reduction of wound symptoms including pain, odour and exudate.
