Secondary healing

Acapsil is used routinely in the closure of all types of wounds and injuries where the wound edges cannot or should not be approximated for example by means of suturing or stapling. This includes surgical wounds that don’t have enough skin to allow for this type of closing procedure.

Tertiary healing

Acapsil is used to prepare a contaminated area prior to surgery, e.g. by removing an infection. Generally, surgery is not performed in areas with infection, and usually surgery is postponed until an infection has been removed. The use of Acapsil in the area helps efficiently remove the infection and thereby improve the chances of success of the surgical procedure as well as for eventless healing following surgery.

Preventive use

Acapsil can be used directly on top of a surgical wound (primary closure) in order to prevent the potential development of an infection in the wound.
