A one-hour symposium entitled ‘New research and solutions to postoperative wound care challenges’ was held by Mölnlycke Health Care on Thursday 29th September at the fifth congress of the World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) in Florence, Italy. The overriding aim of the session was to focus on the challenges of postoperative wound care, i.e. blistering, surgical site infection (SSI), and their associated costs. The importance of clinicians being able to select appropriate dressings was addressed with a discussion surrounding potential benefits associated with the use of a new, advanced postoperative wound dressing.
