OpSite* Post-Op is a revolutionary post-operative dressing combining a high Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) film and the cushioning and absorbency of a low adherent pad together with an easy application carrier system.  The hydrophilic polyurethane film on OpSite Post-Op has REACTIC* properties that 'switch on' in the presence of moisture allowing any excess to transpire into the atmosphere.    

  • Opsite Post Op meets the criteria for an Ideal Wound Dressing. For more information click here.
  • Opsite Post-Op also offers the following advantages:
  • Bacterial barrier
    Protects the site against extrinsic contamination, reducing the risk of infection by bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureaus (MRSA).
  • Waterproof film
    Patient can shower with the dressing in situ.
  • Low allergy adhesive
    A unique grid pattern adhesive minimising the risk of an allergic response.
  • Highly absorbent pad
    Rapidly absorbs serous exudate. Allows lateral spread across the pad to maximise absorbency and reduce the risk of skin maceration.
  • Low adherence
    The wound contact layer enables exudate to pass through to allow minimal trauma on removal.
  • Conformable and extensible film
    Comfortable and non obtrusive for the patient. May help to reduce occurrence of skin blistering in joint surgery.
  • High MVTR The REACTIC* film has a unique molecular structure with an MVTR of approximately 11000g/m2 /24hr, making it significantly more permeable to water vapour than ordinary films in the presence of moisture.
  • Round corners/thin film
    Reduces occurrence of lifting or snag, helping the dressing to stay in place for longer.
  • Helps to prevent skin blistering
    Opsite Post Op may help to prevent post-operative blistering in joint surgery.
