Bottom Line: We tested whether a protease-modulating polyacrylate- (PA-) containing hydrogel resulted in a more efficient wound-bed preparation of venous leg ulcers when compared to an amorphous hydrogel without known protease-modulating properties.After 14 days of treatment there was an absolute decrease in fibrin and necrotic tissue of 37.6 ± 29.9 percentage points in the PA-based hydrogel group and by 16.8 ± 23.0 percentage points in the amorphous hydrogel group.The differences between the groups were significant (decrease in fibrin and necrotic tissue P = 0.004 and increase in granulation tissue P = 0.0005, respectively).

Distribution of ulcers related to the coverage with fibrin and necrotic tissue and to ulcer duration (a). In the PA-based hydrogel group, none of the hard-to-heal ulcers (>6 months duration) had <50% surface coverage with fibrin and necrotic tissue at day 0. After 14 days, the proportion of fibrin and necrotic tissue had decreased to <50% of the wound surface in 12 of 22 wounds. In the amorphous hydrogel group, 2 of 30 wounds had <50% surface coverage with fibrin and necrotic tissue at day 0. After 14 days, 7 of 30 wounds were covered with <50% fibrin and necrotic tissue. Distribution of ulcers related to the coverage with granulation tissue and to the duration (b). In the PA-based hydrogel group, none of the hard-to-heal ulcers (>6 months duration) had >50% surface coverage with granulation tissue at day 0. After 14 days, in 11 of 22 wounds the proportion of granulation tissue had increased to >50%. In the amorphous hydrogel group, 2 of 30 wounds had >50% surface coverage with granulation tissue at day 0. After 14 days, the number increased to 6 of 30 wounds.

Mentions: On day 0, no hard-to-heal ulcer to be treated with PA-based hydrogel had <50% surface coverage by fibrin and necrotic tissue compared to 2 of 30 ulcers (6.67%) in the amorphous hydrogel group (Fig.6a). After 14 days of treatment, 12 of 22 (54.5%) hard-to-heal ulcers treated with PA-based hydrogel had <50% surface coverage by fibrin and necrotic tissue compared to 7 of 30 ulcers (23.3%) in the amorphous hydrogel group (P = 0.0209; χ2-test) (Fig.6a).
