A puncture wound on the knee of a horse was treated for 3-4 months with every available type of antibiotics. However, it failed to heal. The horse was referred to Dr. Knapp, who first tried surgical debridement. However, the stitches broke and the wound did not heal. Next, SertaSil was applied once daily without dressing. The wound healed without further complications. The picture to the left is from March 27, 2013 and shows the wound just after start of application. The picture to the right is from April 18, just after application of SertaSil had stopped.
Simon Knapp: “I really like SertaSil. It vascularises the wound, it keeps the wound clean and we have not seen any signs of hypergranulation.”
