To calculate the estimated amount of SANTYL Ointment your patient’s wound requires, simply enter its dimensions and duration of therapy and the dosing calculator will estimate the grams needed.
Please note that the estimates are only intended as a guide, contain rounded values where appropriate, and assume a constant wound size throughout the treatment period. Therefore, you should adjust these estimates based upon your own clinical experience and individual wound characteristics. Not intended to supersede independent clinical judgment or institutional protocols.
Estimate the amount of SANTYL Ointment to prescribe for your patient.
Depending on whether a 30-gram or 90-gram tube of SANTYL Ointment is used, the proper length of ointment needed for wound debridement will differ. Values are not intended to supersede independent clinical judgement or institutional protocols.

Formula: Estimated length of SO needed from 30-g tube= wound area x nickel depth x SO density x approx. length of 1g of SO= (Xcm2) x (0.2cm) x (0.85g/cm3) x (3.04cm/g)
Formula: Estimated length of SO needed from 90-g tube= wound area x nickel depth x SO density x approx. length of 1g of SO= (Xcm2) x (0.2cm) x (0.85g/cm3) x (1.78cm/g)
Formula: Estimated maximum therapy duration = total grams (rounded up to nearest 30g interval) / ((wound width) x (wound height) x 0.17)
Important Safety Information:Use of SANTYL Ointment should be terminated when debridement is complete and granulation tissue is well established.
One case of systemic hypersensitivity has been reported after 1 year of treatment with collagenase and cortisone. Occasional slight transient erythema has been noted in surrounding tissue when applied outside the wound.
