Silverlon antimicrobial silver dressings have been proven in multiple studies to decrease the rate of surgical site infections. Silverlon was developed for the U.S. military, where it is extensively used for treatment of burn and blast injuries.

Silverlon dressings are used by surgeons and other healthcare professionals around the world to prevent surgical site infection, IV and catheter-related infections, accelerate negative pressure therapy, treat burns, skin grafts, and other chronic wounds in pediatric and adult patients. Silverlon dressings have been proven effective at reducing the incidence of microbial infection, including MRSA and VRE.
