Silver Nitrate Applicators SILVERIN®

Silver Nitrate Sticks are a device containing Silver Nitrate and Potassium Nitrate on its tip. They have been mentioned in pharmacopoeias throughout history and are applied topically for the chemical cauterisation in various fields.

Silver Nitrate Sticks remove excess granualation tissue which can develop in healing wounds of the skin, e.g. surgical cavities with granulation tissue. They are suitable for the use in wound management, stoma care and for the treatment of aphtous stomatitis. Silver Nitrate Sticks are used for haemostasis of smaller bleedings such as nosebleeds (epistaxis) or e.g. cervical nicks after biopsies or where electocautery would be inconvenient and painful. They are often used for the removal of warts and in the fields of podology (e.g. for the removal of corns). Residual tissue of umbilical cords of new born babies can easily be removed.

Silver Nitrate has a bactericidal, astringent, caustic effect. When moistened, it leads to a denaturation (coagulation) of the proteins and subsequent dying off of the treated tissue. The purpose of using Potassium Nitrate is to mitigate the effect of Silver Nitrate.

The users have formed their own preferences and there are no formal recommendations regarding strength, lenght or material.

Application

 
The tip of the stick should be moistened with water. If there is enough moisture on the area to be treated, it may not be necessary to moisten the stick. The aim is to transfer the water of the tip, rich in Silver Nitrate, to the area being treated. The area should be touched by dabbing and rolling the tip several times, without rubbing or pressing, taking care to use exact precision. The treaded area will discolour and shed off from the surrounding tissue after a few days.

It may take up to 24 hours until the treated area turns black.

With the exception of the treatment of warts Silver Nitrate Sticks must be used by healthcare professionals.
