|- Brief summary||Local wound care is a worldwide challenge. The large variety in dressing materials and the lack of convincing evidence make the choice for the optimum dressing for open wounds cumbersome, which hampers optimum wound care. This randomised trial was conducted to obtain the first high-level evidence on the costs and effectiveness of the occlusive wound care principle as compared to the classical approach using non-occlusive gauze dressings for local wound care.|
