Abstract

Background: Wound is defect or discontinuity of a tissue or an organ. Wound prevalence in hospital’s patients reached 41,2% to 48%. Wound healing are influenced by many factors, one of them is the wound dressing. Tulle gauze is a lano-paraffin gauze dressing which contain 1% framycetine sulphate and is used conventionally in medical practice. Meanwhile, polyurethane foam is a dressing which is able to maintain wound moisture, minimize adhesion between wound surface and dressing, and prevent external microorganisms invasion. This experimental study aim to find out the difference in wound healing based on Southampton Score between tulle gauze and polyurethane foam. Methods: This experimental study used randomized post test control group design, with fifteen male wistar rats randomized into three groups, which were control group, tulle gauze group, and polyurethane foam group. Every rats were cut aseptically on their backs as deep as the subcutis layer, then dressed with wound dressing according to their group. Every three days, the dressings were changed and the wounds were accessed using Southampton Scoring System. Result: Kruskal-Wallis test on Southampton Score on day three, six, nine, and twelve didn’t show significant differences, with the value of p=0,84; p=0,195; p=0,182; and p=0,117 respectively. Conclusion: There were no significant differences between Southampton Score of the wounds which were dressed by tulle gauze and polyurethane foam. Keywords: Wound healing, Southampton Score, tulle gauze, polyurethane foam
