Transforming Expectations in Wound Care


ALTRAZEAL Transforming Powder Dressing is truly changing the way healthcare providers approach their treatment of wounds – both chronic and acute. Through the unique action of proprietary nanoflex™ technology, ALTRAZEAL promotes fast healing through its excellent oxygen and vapor permeability, bacterial protection, skin-like flexibility, and unsurpassed patient comfort.

ALTRAZEAL is most effective when used on exuding, non-infected wounds. See Full Prescribing Information for indications and contraindications. Health care providers should always follow their institution’s protocol.

Transforming chronic and non-healing wounds


Unlike acute wounds that pursue a normal course of healing, chronic wounds may persist for months or even years. Chronic wounds have a significant impact on the quality of life of patients and their caregivers, as well as healthcare system as a whole.

ALTRAZEAL Transforming Powder Dressing has demonstrated the ability to promote healing in chronic wounds through a unique combination of oxygen and vapor permeability, bacterial protection, flexibility and patient comfort. When hydrated by exudate or sterile saline, the aggregated powder particles in ALTRAZEAL form an intimate contact with the surface of the wound bed. Although the precise mechanism of action has not been determined, it is believed that this close contact and high moisture vapor transpiration rate (MVTR) creates a negative pressure at the interface between the dressing and wound bed that stimulates the formation of granulation tissue.

ALTRAZEAL has been shown to promote closure in chronic wounds that have been open for as long as 5 years. There is no minimum or maximum duration of a wound to have ALTRAZEAL applied.

ALTRAZEAL is broadly indicated for use in chronic or slow-healing wounds, including:

  • Venous Leg Ulcers
  • Diabetic Foot Ulcers
  • Pressure Ulcers

Transforming the treatment of venous leg ulcers

A venous leg ulcer is a chronic wound on the leg which fails to heal.


Venous leg ulcers often occur as a result of poor circulation leading to stasis dermatitis, a buildup of fluid under the skin. As fluid builds up, it makes it difficult for the bloodstream to maintain healthy cell nutrition. The skin becomes fragile and may form open sores—ulcers—that are resistant to healing.

ALTRAZEAL Transforming Powder Dressing can help promote healing in venous leg ulcers through its high moisture vapor transpiration rate, and bacterial protection. Because many patients with venous leg ulcers may have compromised mobility, ALTRAZEAL is an excellent treatment choice because it is comfortable and flexible – it is designed with properties to simulate skin covering a wound bed.

With ALTRAZEAL, there is little risk of damage to fragile skin upon dressing removal, because it does not require adhesives and, in most cases, no secondary dressing is required. ALTRAZEAL is designed to easily flake off as the wound heals and new epidermis forms beneath the dressing or from the wound margins. If it becomes necessary to remove the dressing, simply re-hydrate ALTRAZEAL with sterile saline, and it lifts gently off the wound without harming sensitive skin.

Transforming the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers


Foot ulcers are common in patients with diabetes, and may lead to serious complications, including amputation, if left untreated.

ALTRAZEAL has been demonstrated to promote healing in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and protect these wounds from infection – a leading cause of amputation. ALTRAZEAL binds tightly to the wound on the microcellular level and provides high moisture vapor transpiration. Although the precise mechanism of action has not been determined, it is believed that this close contact and high moisture vapor transpiration rate (MVTR) at the interface between the dressing and wound bed creates a negative pressure that stimulates the formation of granulation tissue.

Because many patients with DFUs may have reduced mobility, ALTRAZEAL is an excellent treatment choice because it is comfortable and flexible – it's designed to move and flex with the skin.1 ALTRAZEAL often requires no secondary dressing, and its flexibility and comfort may promote better compliance among patients who may be treated at home.

Transforming the care of pressure ulcers


ALTRAZEAL Transforming Powder dressing has demonstrated the ability to promote healing in pressure ulcers, protecting these wounds from infection that may be common in this patient population due to compromised health and co-morbidities. Because pressure ulcers are caused by reduced mobility, ALTRAZEAL is an excellent treatment choice because it is thin, comfortable and flexible – it's designed to move and flex with the skin. ALTRAZEAL often requires no secondary dressing.

When hydrated by exudate or sterile saline, the aggregated powder particles of ALTRAZEAL form an intimate contact with the surface of the wound bed. Although the precise mechanism of action has not been determined, it is believed that this close contact and high moisture vapor transpiration rate (MVTR) at the interface between the dressing and wound bed creates a negative pressure that stimulates the formation of granulation tissue.

Pressure ulcers occur when sustained pressure cuts off blood flow to a part of the body and damages tissue, sometimes to the point of necrosis, or cell death. Although most pressure ulcers are caused by prolonged periods of time in a fixed position (bed- or wheelchair-bound patients are frequent sufferers), pressure ulcers can also be caused by friction or shear resulting from movements designed to prevent them.
