PMID:  215386     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Seventeen patients with thirty-four decubitus ulcers were treated with dextranomer, collagenase, or sugar and egg white. All seven patients in the dextranomer group and two of five patients in the collagenase group improved at the end of the study, but none of the five patients on sugar and egg white treatment improved. Although collagenase can be helpful in the treatment of decubitus ulcers, dextranomer is significantly better.
