Makes A Difference

Variability exists in abscess and cyst treatment but incision and drainage is most common. Wound packing is thought to keep abscess walls separated and allow drainage by preventing premature closure. A new minimally invasive method is gaining attention as an alternative to gauze. It involves an improvised “loop drain” tied through two small incisions in an abscess. Existing literature already suggests this method provides lower failure rates, potential for less pain, decreased scarring, and lower associated healthcare utilization costs. To treat a Bartholin’s cyst, a word catheter can be inserted into a single incision after drainage. However, word catheters are quite costly and known to fall out prematurely.

Our Solution

Mar-Med’s Derma-Stent was designed with the benefits of the minimally invasive method. Derma-Stent can be used with one or two incisions and does not need to be tied to remain in place. A clinical trial has recently demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the device. Therefore, Derma-Stent can replace packing gauze, loop drain and word catheters, while saving cost and improving care.


“The patients report no significant discomfort from the placement or removal. Some say they didn’t even realize it’s there. Much better than packing and re-packing wounds!”
