Preparation for Application
Prepare wound bed using standard methods to ensure
wound is free of debris and necrotic tissue. If
necessary, surgically debride the wound to ensure
the wound edges contain viable tissue (figure 1).
Explore Wound for Tracking and Undermining
Probe wound with cotton swab to identify areas
of wound tracking or undermining into adjacent soft
tissue. Undermining may be extensive and thorough
investigation should be performed.
