GENTA-COLL® resorb

GENTA-COLL® resorb is a hemostyptic collagen sponge that contains the aminoglycoside antibiotic gentamicin for local protection from infections. This medical device is recommended for hemostasis:

  • In clean, clean-contaminated and contaminated wounds
  • When there is a high risk for infection
  • In septic surgery, e.g. for revision procedures

The tried and tested characteristics of KOLLAGEN resorbTM combined with antibiotic protection.

GENTA-COLL® resorb is distinguished first by the multiple advantages offered by KOLLAGEN resorbTM, and second by its antibiotic additive:

  • Reliable hemostasis and promotion of wound healing
  • Protection of the collagen sponge from possible contamination by wound pathogens

Gentamicin sulphate belongs to the class of aminoglycosides and possesses a broad antibacterial spectrum.

For certain antibiotics and for aminoglycosides as well, the highest possible concentration of the substance is decisive for the degree of bactericidal action and the duration of the postantibiotic effect. It is scientifically undisputed that long-lasting, lower levels of activity are not recommended for aminoglycosides, since they promote the development of bacterial resistance.

Through the local administration, high levels are initially achieved around the site of application, but no systemic toxic serum levels are observed.

Clinical indications for GENTA-COLL® resorb include:

  • Soft tissue wounds
  • Abscess caverns
  • Joint empyema
  • Spongioplasty
  • Osteitis, osteomyelitis
  • Implant associated infections
  • Diabetic foot
  • Extirpation of the rectum
  • Pilonidal sinus
  • Ano-rectal injuries
  • Sternotomy
  • Heart pacemaker replacement
  • etc.

Note: radical debridement must be performed before applying GENTA-COLL® resorb to infected wounds!
