Versatile Wound Care Option - Dermacyn


Dermacyn™ Wound Care (Oculus Innovative Sciences). One newly developed modality may prove to be a worthwhile adjunct in facilitating good wound care. According to the
company, clinicians may employ Dermacyn, a super-oxidized and non-toxic water product, to help debride and clean acute and chronic dermal lesions, such as stage I to IV pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers and post-surgical wounds.


Matthew Regulski, DPM, the Director of the Wound Center of Ocean County, N.J., uses Dermacyn for “any type of wound” at his facility. Those wounds include arterial wounds, venous wounds, immunopathic wounds and inflammatory wounds. Dr. Regulski’s staff pre-treats the wound with a Dermacyn soak for 10 minutes prior to debridement. He notes he will also use the product in conjunction with grafts, human growth factors and autologous platelet gels. In addition, Dr. Regulski uses the product in pulse lavage and with products like Versajet (Smith and Nephew) and VAC Therapy (KCI).


Calling Dermacyn “quite revolutionary,” Dr. Regulski cites a number of advantages. He notes it destroys bacteria, resistant strains, viruses, fungi and spores, and also can inhibit the release of histamine from mast cells and pro-inflammatory cytokines like TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma and interleukins. With Dermacyn, one can sterilize a wound in as few as three applications and Dr. Regulski adds that its sterilization properties are so effective that he now uses very little silver or cadexomer dressings. Dr. Regulski adds that Dermacyn is non-cytotoxic and non-genotoxic, and his patients have not had oral, ocular or skin irritations.
