How does Promogran Prisma For Wounds Dressing work?
Prisma for Wounds is a sterile, freeze dried, composite of collagen, silver-ORC and oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC).
Optimum Wound Environment
Promogran Prisma Matrix transforms into a soft, conformable, biodegradable gel in the presence of exudate, allowing contact with all areas of the wound. A moist micro-environment is maintained at the wound surface, which is conducive to epithelialization, granulation tissue formation, and optimal wound healing.
Role Of Silver in Promogran Prisma Matrix
Silver-ORC is said to be comprised of 25% w/w ionically bound silver, which is a well-known antimicrobial agent. Systagenix Prisma dressing with silver provides an effective antimicrobial barrier that helps in reduction of bacterial development with common wound pathogens such as, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Eschericia coli, and Streptococcus pyogenes. Reduction of bacterial bioburden in the dressing may result in reduced risk of infection.
What is ORC?
Cellulose is a major component of all plants. Once oxidized, ORC (Oxidized Regenerated Cellulose) is completely bioresorbable, and readily degrades through fluid absorption and subsequent gelling.

How to use Prisma Dressing?
- Before application, necrotic tissue must first be removed by debridement.
- For optimal effect, apply Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing directly to the whole wound bed.
- For a wound with low or no exudate apply Prisma Wound Dressing and hydrate with saline solution. This will initiate the transformation of the Promogran Prisma Matrix into a gel.
- After hydration, the Promogran Prisma gel will come in contact with the wound surface. The biodegradable Promogran Prisma Matrix gel is naturally absorbed into the body over time.
- In order to maintain a moist wound healing environment Promogran Prisma Dressing must be covered with a semi-occlusive dressing (e.g. Bioclusive Transparent Dressing, Tielle or Tielle Plus Hydropolymer Dressings) or a non-occlusive secondary dressing and fixed to the skin with a non-irritating tape.
- After initial application, re-apply Prisma Collagen Dressing to the wound daily as per physician recommendation.
- It is not necessary to remove any residual of Prisma Dressing during dressing changes.
Prisma for Wounds Instructions
- Promogran Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing should be stored away from direct light.
- Over-exposure to light may cause some discoloration, however this does not affect the release of silver from the dressing.
- Store below 25 degrees C / 77 degrees F.
What does Promogran Prisma Matrix Dressing contain?
- 44% oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC)
- 55% collagen
- 1% silver-ORC, which contains 25% w/w ionically bound silver
Precautions to take while using Promogran Prisma Dressing
- Only when proper medical treatment addresses the underlying cause, Prisma Dressing may be used when visible signs of infection are present in the wound.
- Not intended to be a substitute for appropriate treatment of infection.
- Healthcare professionals/clinicians should be aware of the fact that there is very limited data available on prolonged and repeated use of silver containing dressings, particularly in children and neonates.
- Patients with known sensitivity to silver, ORC or collagen
- Third-degree burns
FAQ's About Promogran Prisma Dressing
How often should the dressing be changed?
A new matrix should be applied every 72 hours unless otherwise directed by a medical professional.
Can this dressing be used on an infected wound?
Only if proper medical treatment has been applied to the cause of infection.
What is the difference between Silver-ORC and Silver Ag in a dressing?
Silver-ORC is designed to promote granulation tissue development and stimulate wound healing while also providing protection against infection1. Silver Ag protects against infection but does not promote tissue development.
How long does it take Prisma Dressing to work?
Improvement was determined as a 50% reduction (or greater) in wound area by 12 weeks. Of the wounds that improved or healed in the 12-week period (63%) the response was greater in wounds of less than 6 months (87%).
