The first and only concentrated surfactant
for wound bed preparation.

PluroGel uses pioneering micelle matrix technology to help you achieve a wound bed that exceeds expectations. This highly concentrated surfactant works to hydrate the wound, control exudate and provide gentle debridement. FDA-cleared, PluroGel helps you create an optimal and receptive wound healing environment.

, PluroGel

Removes barriers to healing.

Softens, loosens and drives slough and necrotic debris away from the wound bed.

, PluroGel

Supports quality healing.

Creates an ideal moist wound healing environment that assists with natural granulation and epithelialization.

, PluroGel

Promotes patient comfort and compliance.

Goes on and rinses off gently, so patients report less pain and anxiety during dressing changes.

Mechanisms of action

Surfactanct-based autolytic debridement
PluroGel is a stable, viscous gel composed of a high concentration of surfactant micelles. Each micelle has a hydrophilic outer surface that softens and loosens wound debris, and a hydrophobic inner core that traps debris. The micelles link to form a matrix that continually expands and contracts. This creates a cleansing/rinsing action that disrupts the surface tension holding slough and necrotic tissue in place.

Inverse thermodynamics
Inverse thermodynamic properties enable PluroGel to thicken in a warm environment and remain on the wound bed, allowing constant contact with debris. Because PluroGel is 100 percent water soluble, debris is removed by rinsing with saline or cleanser at dressing change.

A groin wound associated with a vascular graft infection is associated with significant morbidity. Management of groin wounds is often challenging due to their anatomical location that renders them difficult to visualize and keep clean.
