Mepilex® XT


Mepilex® XT foam dressings, designed to help take control of a wide range of exuding wounds, is an innovative breakthrough in wound treatment. Exuding wounds pose real challenges for patients and for healthcare providers, and the management of highly viscous exudate is believed to significantly influence clinical outcomes1.

Mepilex® XT is the effective choice for managing high viscosity exudate and better outcomes. 

  • Mepilex® XT handles more fluid2,3 than other foam dressings
  • Mepilex® XT absorbs fluid faster than other foam dressings4,5,6
  • Mepilex® XT's low and high viscosity fluid-management properties4,5can be used at any exuding wound-healing stage7
  • Mepilex® XT supports longer wear times, leading to fewer dressing changes, better compliance and lower overall cost of care8
