Abstract

BACKGROUND:

A groin wound associated with a vascular graft infection is associated with significant morbidity. Management of groin wounds is often challenging due to their anatomical location that renders them difficult to visualize and keep clean.

CASE:

This case report describes the use of a concentrated surfactant-based gel dressing for an infected groin wound.

CONCLUSIONS:

Because of their location and complex topography, groin wounds are difficult to keep clean and maintain dressing integrity. This case study describes the use of a concentrated surfactant-based gel dressing that remained in place and promoted healing of an infected groin wound.
