INTRODUCTION: Management of a patient with pressure ulcer sore(s) must associate local and general treatment. OBJECTIVES: To determine which medical devices other than supports and which treatments may be used for pressure sore healing (granulation tissue and epithelization/epidermidalization) as of 2012. METHODS: Systematic review of the literature querying the databases: PASCAL Biomed, PubMed, and Cochrane library from 2000 through 2010. RESULTS: Data in the literature on granulation tissue and epithelisation/epidermidalization in pressure sore healing are poor. The level of evidence regarding the relative effectiveness of one modern dressing compared to another has remained low. However, the study data on the interest of hydrocolloid dressing compared with impregnated gases are more significant. DISCUSSION: Studies with heterogeneous results and populations have shown low power. Meta-analyses are difficult due to the wide range of therapeutic aims. Further clinical studies with adequate methodology are needed prior to elaboration of more specific recommendations. CONCLUSION: The use of hydrocolloid dressing may be recommended to improve granulation tissue development and epithelization/epidermidalization in pressure sore (Level B).
