What has been said about Expaniderm
The expanders allowed me to remove a leg mass and close the defect which would have been impossible otherwise. I was impressed with how well the expanders stretched the skin, even on the distal limb. Without the expanders the wound would have taken weeks to heal. I received lots of support from the Oxtex team.Simon Hennessy MVB MSc Cert AVP (ESO) (ESST) MRCVS DipECVS
The expanders inflated reliably in the areas I needed them to. I was able to reconstruct areas that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise, and take larger margins. The technical advice I received was honest, accurate and helped in planning the surgery.Stefan Witte DVM, Diplomate ACVS, Diplomate ACVSMR,Clinical Director Tierklinik Schönbühl AG
It all came together well, which it definitely wouldn’t have done without the expanders.Karl Underhill BVetMed Cert AVP (GSAS) MRCVS RCVS Advanced Practitioner, Saint Leonard Veterinary Centre, Derby
The Oxtex advisors were helpful in discussing the case prior to implantation and provided useful tips for placing the expanders. I was impressed with the amount of skin stretch the expanders provided. The expanders were easy to place and remove and well tolerated.
Jane Boswell MA VetMB, CertES (orth), DipECVS, MRCVS, Liphook Equine Hospital
The expanders gave me the extra skin I needed, exactly where I needed it. The support from the technical team was great. I was very happy with the results and so was the owner. I would definitely use the expanders again.Jamie Christie BVMS CertAVP(ESO) MRCVS, Clyde Vet Group Equine Hospital, Lanark
The Expaniderm expanders gave me predictable skin expansion where I needed it. The customer service at Oxtex was fantastic. A personal adviser was easy to reach by phone or email with accurate technical advice and guidance.Chris Morris BVSc CertSAS MRCVS RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery, Park Vet Group, Leicester
The expanders give me another option when dealing with difficult reconstruction cases. I have used the expanders more than once and would definitely use them again in the future.Debra Archer BVMS, PhD CertES (Soft Tissue) DipECVS MRCVS, Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital University of Liverpool
Expaniderm gives us another tool in the armoury for the management of masses and sarcoids. The team at Oxtex are always available for orders and advice. I have found Expaniderm to be particularly useful in the management of certain head sarcoids.Tim Mair BVSc PhD DEIM DESTS DipECEIM AssocECVDI MRCVS RCVS Specialist in Equine Internal Medicine & Equine Surgery, Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic
The technical support was excellent and really helped me to get the most out of the expanders. The owner was delighted with the outcome.Martin Law BVSc MRCVS, Shepton Vets, Shepton Mallet
The patient responded well and tolerated everything very well during the expansion process. We managed a complete excision and good primary closure. Our experience was very good and it will form part of our armoury when dealing with big lumps in tight places.Duncan Green BVSc MRCVS, Companion Care Canterbury
