Exuding often occurs in the inflammatory stage both for acute wounds and chronic wounds. Absorbent wound dressings are specially developed and used in exuding wounds. In order to reduce bacteria and risk of infection, many absorbent dressings are impregnated with silver ions or particles which are the most widely used substance to obtain antimicrobial effects and therefore this review focuses on the antimicrobial absorbent dressings treated with silver ions or silver particles. The methods of… Expand

A novel silver-containing absorbent wound dressing based on spacer fabric.
TLDR
The application of silver-containing spacer fabric as an antimicrobial wound dressing was investigated and it was found that this could be an efficient way to lower the potential of silver entering the human body, and prevent silver toxicity and accelerate wound healing. Expand
Multifunctional Antimicrobial Nanofibre Dressings Containing ε-Polylysine for the Eradication of Bacterial Bioburden and Promotion of Wound Healing in Critically Colonized Wounds.
TLDR
The utility of a superhydrophilic electrospun gelatin nanofibre dressings containing a broad-spectrum antimicrobial polymer, ε-polylysine (εPL), crosslinked by polydopamine (pDA) for treating second degree burns is reported, with superior clinical outcome than standard of care silver dressings.

Superabsorbent crosslinked bacterial cellulose biomaterials for chronic wound dressings
TLDR
This work presents a novel ex situ modification of bacterial cellulose (BC) polymer, that significantly improves its ability to absorb water after drying, and had over 1.5x higher water capacity than modern commercial dressings dedicated to highly exuding wounds, while exhibiting no cytotoxic effects against fibroblast cell line L929 in vitro.

Dressings and wound infection.
TLDR
Using an in vitro wound model, use of the hydrocolloid dressing Granuflex on experimentally colonized wounds resulted in significantly fewer numbers of airborne bacteria, and was found to optimize reepithelialization rates and reduce the incidence of wound sepsis. Expand
The antimicrobial efficacy of a silver alginate dressing against a broad spectrum of clinically relevant wound isolates
TLDR
It was found that the silver alginate dressing was able to inhibit the growth of all microorganisms tested, which is clinically relevant as both the non biofilm and biofilm phenotypic states of microorganisms are evident in wounds and therefore significant to delayed healing. Expand
