The findings from our study show no differences between using hydrocolloid dressings
plus conventional care and using only conventional care in preventing the onset of pressure ulcers in adult patients hospitalized with high risk of developing these events.

Seventy three patients were included in the study with gauze dressing changed on 2nd post operative day and hydrocolloid dressing
on 10th post operative day.
was reported 'not to increase the risk of infection' in abdominal incisions when compared with the conventional postoperative island dressing (Holm et al 1998).
In a study conducted by Xakellis and Chrischilles,  healing rates were only slightly better for hydrocolloid dressings
(9 days) than for wet saline gauze dressings (11 days), but there was a significant difference in median total cost: $25.31 for gauze versus $15.90 for the hydrocolloid.
