Due to the longer longevity that the population currently enjoysand because of their physical deterioration, a high percentageof them will suffer from pressure sores.

This multicenter, open and prospective study was carried out inorder to evaluate the efficiency and behaviour of a new hydro-polymeric dressing with an internal three-dimensional structurein 119 patients with pressure sores on several locations.

The results obtained confirm the efficiency of this hydro-poly-meric dressing in the pathology studied, along with the high ac-ceptance from the professionals, and the adaptation to the pa-tient needs as well.
