Kerecis Omega3 Wound is intact decellularized fish skin  that  contains  natural  Omega3  and  dermal- matrix  proteins  that are  compatible  with  human tissue.  Chronic  wounds  are  stuck  in  an  inflamed stage and fail to progress through the normal stages of   healing.   Kerecis   Omega3   Wound   effectively salvages the wound from the inflammation stage and allows for regular healing to ensue.

 

Kerecis Omega3 Wound Graft

A unique, highly effective treatment for  chronic wounds  using acellular fish skin for tissue regeneration

APPLICATION

Kerecis is easy to apply ,simply cut the sheet so that it fits into the wound, hydrate with a saline solution (NaCl) and apply into the wound without overlapping the wound edges. Apply a  secondary  dressing  on  top  of  the  product  and  ensure  that  the wound bed and the Kerecis Omega3 sheet are moist at all times. Be careful to ensure that the Kerecis Omega3 sheet never dries out. Re-apply every 2-7 days, or when the previously applied sheet has been absorbed and is no longer visible. Do not remove partly absorbed product from the wound.
