Collasate Post-Operative Wound Dressing (7gm)
Collasate is a ostoperative dressing-medical hydrolysate of Type I collagen. It is intended for topical use in the management of surgical sites, chronic and acute wounds and all partial and full-thickness wounds.
Collasate Postoperative Dressing is a medical hydrolysate of Type I collagen in gel form. It is an all-natural product containing 96% Type I collagen and water. There is no alcohol, preservatives or synthetic ingredients in Collasate. Unlike other collagen products, which are made from native collagen, Collasate is a patented product manufactured from a proprietary process which creates a product of a specified molecular weight. Native collagen must be processed by the body before it can be utilized in the healing process. Because of the molecular structure of the collagen in Collasate, it is immediately available to enhance the body's own natural healing process. This availability has resulted in some truly dramatic healing successes.
Collagen interacts with surgical or trauma sites at every stage of healing.Collasate acts as a tissue adhesive, helps to prevent bacterial infection and protects the site from mechanical insult. Collagen provides a matrix for cellular colonization and subsequent connective tissue formation1 and reduces the potential for scarring2.
Collasate is easy to handle and conforms to any site. It reduces pain and is soothing and deodorizing. And Collasate can be used on any type animal, including birds and reptiles. Collasate has no known contraindications.
It is cleared for dental use as well as surgical and trauma management. It will not harm an animal if they lick it off; most animals leave it in place because it occludes the nerve endings which signal pain and itching. This has made it well accepted in situations where the treated animal is not a pet, such as the Canid Center in St. Louis where the product has been used for the last several years.
Additionally, Collasate is a cost-effective postoperative and trauma management product. Cases utilizing Collasate provide desired patient outcomes on a timely basis. Collasate is indicated for the management of surgical and trauma sites, chronic wounds, burns, skin lesions and general dermatologic conditions. See reverse for additional indications.
