On removal it is safe and comfortable for the patient, with reduced risk of ingrowth into the new tissue. Its anti-microbial properties assist in reducing the risk of infection in the wound.
The channel drain is used with moistened gauze and is suitable for managing sinuses and wounds with tunneling or undermining and can be placed directly down the sinus tract or coiled to fit undermined wounds. Its one piece design ensures safe intact removal from the sinus tract.
