The overall healing rate for the two groups was similar; however, the polymer hydrogel dressing had a more favorable overall clinical performance evaluation based largely on its more favorable support of autolytic debridement.
Organisms possess autolytic enzyme systems that can break down cell walls, causing a chewed-up or unevenly stained appearance.
