Collagen Patches Impregnated with Antimicrobial Agents Have High Local Antimicrobial Efficacy and Achieve Effective Tissue Gluing

Abstract

Background: Local antimicrobial systems have gained importance, as illustrated by current, research on drug delivery systems (DDS). We aimed to develop materials that combine hemostatic and antimicrobial efficacy as well as adhesiveness for use in surgical tissue management. Materials and Methods: Materials were evaluated by in vitro studies employing… (More)
