Acelity Promogran Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing

Brand/Manufacturer: ACELITY/SYSTAGENIX
  • FSA Approved

Acelity Promogran Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing is a freeze-dried composite of collagen, oxidised regenerated cellulose (ORC) and silver. It is designed to kick start the healing process while providing protection from infection. In the presence of exudate, it transforms into a soft, conformable, biodegradable gel, and thus allows contact with all areas of the wound.

Features of Promogran Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing

  • Used for variety of ulcers including Diabetic Ulcers, venous and pressure ulcers, full and partial thickness wounds as well as donor sites
  • Also recommended for granulating or necrotic wounds
  • Acelity Promogran can be used with compression bandages
  • Collagen stimulates new tissue growth by encouraging the deposition and organization of newly formed collagen fibers and granulation tissue in the wound bed
  • Collagen chemically binds to matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) found in the exudate
  • Presence of silver prevents anti-microbial activity in the wound bed promoting quicker healing time
  • It transforms into conformable, biodegradable gel, allowing contact with all areas of the wound
  • This Composite Dressing can be moulded to fit the wound shape or it can be cut with sterile scissors to fit the wound
  • Not necessary to remove any Promogran Prisma residue from the wound

Role Of Silver in Promogran Prisma Matrix:

The dressing provides an effective antimicrobial barrier as demonstrated by the in vitro reduction of bacterial growth 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

How often does the dressing need to be changed if there is very little drainage??
Vickie Tapp - 11/17/2016 6:26:39 PM
answer image
Based on instructions for use, the Acelity Promogran Prisma Matrix Wound Dressing should be changed every 72 hours or more frequently if the exudate level is high. So in this case if there is little drainage then the Promogran Prisma Matrix dressing can be applied for at least 72 hours.

Is Promogran Prisma can allow to undergo MRI since 1% silver ORC presence.
Thank you for your attention

Generally silver should be used cautiously on wounds with a low bioburden or epithelialising wounds. In addition, as a precaution, silver products should not be used during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans or on patients with a hypersensitivity toward silver other components of the product.

The wounds treated with Promogran had shown a greater reduction in wound size compared to the control dressing (16% vs 1.65%). Biochemically, it was found that Promogran-treated wounds showed a reduction in the MMP9:MMP2 ratio.

can it be used in conjunction w/ a wound vac?
Karla - 9/20/2015 8:53:45 PM

Thank you for reaching out to us. 

I have spoke with KCI (formerly Systagenix Wound Management) who is the manufacturer of the product. The product you mentioned is NOT recommended for use with Vac Therapy (WoundVac).

Per the clinical nurse, the product becomes gelatinous when moist and therefore can be sucked through the tubing of the Vac limiting its effectiveness if not causing a malfunction altogether. They do not have any dressings specifically recommended for the proposed use. 

Feel free to contact them directly at 1-800-275-4524 ext 56650.

How often should dressing be changed?
Sharon - 4/12/2015 5:47:39 PM
answer image
Thank you for reaching out to us. The interval between dressing changes is determined principally by the condition of the wound. In heavily exuding wounds, it may be necessary to replace the matrix daily initially, but on lightly exuding wounds it may be left undisturbed for 2 to 3 days.
