NEW!

The obvious choice for surgical wounds

Mepilex® Border Post-Op is an all-in-one post-op dressing that effectively absorbs and retains blood and surgical exudates. It is intended for acute wounds, such as surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions. It is optimized for post-op use and blood absorption. The Safetac® layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin3.
