Abstract: Pressure sore is among the most common long-term secondary medical complication in persons with spinal cord injury. The majority of morbidity problems and the most frequent cause of death were sepsis associated with genitourinary and pressure ulcer sequelae. Healing of bed sore is great challenge. We studied two dressing material (eusol and silverstream) in healing of bed sore. 22 bed sore patient were randomly allocated in two groups and the result of their dressing were compared in followup. There was faster rate of healing in grade 2 and grade 3 bed sore with silverstream as compared to eusol, but result was not statistically significant(p>0.05). However in grade 4 bedsore patient healing was poor with both dressing materials and almost always require plastic surgery intervention for healing.
