BACKGROUND: Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for postsurgical incision treatment has demonstrated benefits. A prospective randomized study was developed including 32 patients who underwent bilateral breast reduction mammoplasty. Patients served as their own control and received NPWT to one breast and fixation strips to the other breast. METHODS: The primary outcome was the number of wound healing complications within 21 days when comparing NPWT treatment with fixation strips...

OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to examine histopathological changes in three chronic wounds, and to assess whether the application of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) changes the wound bed environment. METHOD: - Results: We recruited three patients were recruited who had a non-healing wounds in excess of eight weeks. Histopathological changes in the wound bed supported the evidence that NPWT changes the wound bed environment by reducing inflammatory damage and facilitating wound bed perfusion with angiogenesis...

Traditional negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) systems are considered durable. The pump is designed for use by numerous patients over a period of several years. Recently developed smaller, disposable devices are designed for single-patient use. A retrospective analysis of 2012-2014 national Medicare claims data was used to examine payments associated with the use of traditional and disposable NPWT systems. Data extracted included NPWT episodes from the Limited Data Set Standard Analytic Files including the 5% sample for traditional NPWT and 100% sample for disposable NPWT...

Surgical site infections (SSIs) occur at an average rate of 21.1 per cent after Whipple procedures per NSQIP data. In the setting of adherence to standard National Surgery Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) Hepatopancreatobiliary recommendations including wound protector use and glove change before closing, this study seeks to evaluate the efficacy of using negative pressure wound treatment (NPWT) over closed incision sites after a Whipple procedure to prevent SSI formation. We retrospectively examined consecutive patients from January 2014 to July 2016 who met criteria of completing Whipple procedures with full primary incision closure performed by a single surgeon at a single institution...

Enterocutaneous fistula (ECF) is one of the most challenging abdominal complications, for surgeons and other healthcare members, which involves significant morbidity and potentially mortality. Despite advancements in both operative and non-operative therapy, fistula-related complications are still unavoidable. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) had been used years to treat chronic wound, to decrease tissue edema, improve circulation, promote healthy granulation tissue and inhibit bacterial growth. We report a 29-year-old male with complicated ECF due to abdominal tuberculosis, that was healed after treated using NPWT...

Purpose of the investigation: Scar formation is an important, permanent surrogate marker for wound healing. The main aim of this randomized trial was to evaluate the effects of incisional negative pressure wound therapy (iNPWT) on scar formation in uncomplicated wound healing with 3-dimensional (3D) digital imaging. BASIC PROCEDURES: Patients undergoing bilateral inguinal incisions after vascular surgery were randomized to receive iNPWT and standard dressing on separate sides. The incisional scars were documented at a median time of 808 days (range 394-1194) after surgery with 3D-photography, which were objectively evaluated by two plastic surgeons using the Stony Brook scar evaluation scale (SBSES) and a 10-point graded numeric ranking scale (NRS10)...

The unusual ability of a human parainfluenza virus type 2 (hPIV2) nucleoprotein point mutation (NPQ202A) to strongly enhance minigenome replication was found to depend on the absence of a functional, internal element of the bipartite replication promoter (CRII). This point mutation allows relatively robust CRII-minus minigenome replication in a CRII-independent manner, under conditions in which NPwt is essentially inactive. The nature of the aa at position 202 apparently controls whether viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (vRdRp) can, or cannot, initiate RNA synthesis in a CRII-independent manner...

NPWT with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d), which combines NPWT with wound irrigation, has been clinically applied as a more effective treatment than conventional NPWT. Commercially available recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor (rh-bFGF) has been demonstrated to be beneficial for use over the wound beds. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of combined treatment with NPWTi-d and rh-bFGF. Six pigs received 12 full-thickness excisional skin wounds and were treated with 6 different treatment groups for each pair...

BACKGROUND: A new proprietary negative pressure wound device has been developed to apply negative pressure therapy to closed wounds (Closed-NPWT). We postulated that Closed-NPWT management of contaminated and dirty wounds would lead to faster wound healing and no significant difference in wound complications. STUDY DESIGN: An IRB approved, prospective randomized trial was performed. Patients were consented preoperatively, but not entered nor assigned treatment until intraoperative findings were known...

E Ali, M Raghuvanshi
OBJECTIVE: Open upper limb injuries requiring soft reconstruction can pose a dilemma for trauma surgeons when considering the treatment options. The British Orthopaedic Association and British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons Standard for Trauma (BOAST) have addressed the management of severe open lower limb fractures with the creation of the BOAST 4 guidelines. However, no such gold standard exists for the treatment of open injuries of the upper limb. Furthermore, treatment of these injuries is often more difficult and requires complicated strategies...

Pretibial lacerations are a common cause of presentation to accident and emergency departments. The management of these wounds is contentious with a variation in practise between individual institutions. We present the case of a 49-year-old female with a background of pulmonary atresia and associated pulmonary hypertension, who underwent successful outpatient negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for three pretibial lacerations. We would propose that this therapy is an effective option for the management of these wounds in independently mobile patients who are at high-risk when under anaesthetic...

The reverse sural adipofascial flap (RSAF) is used to reconstruct challenging wounds of the foot and ankle. It offers several advantages over the traditional reverse sural flap, including less venous congestion. To complete the reconstruction, split-thickness skin grafting (STSG) may be done immediately or in a delayed fashion; however, both scenarios result in suboptimal take rates and prolonged healing. An acellular dermal matrix (ADM; Integra; Ethicon Inc, Somerville, New Jersey) and negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) combined with RSAF followed by delayed STSG may decrease wound healing time...

An extensive 35 × 20 cm sized full-thickness abdominal wall defect was created after resection of aggressive abdominal fibromatosis in a 19-year-old male patient. Immediate reconstruction was not possible due to prolonged operation time and resulting severe bowel edema. A silicone sheet with NPWT was applied over the exposed viscera. After 1 week, silicone sheet was substituted with a composite mesh. Then, abdominal wall reconstruction with bilateral free anterolateral thigh (ALT) flaps (30 × 12 cm and 25 × 12 cm sized) was performed...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate graft preservation, major bleeding, and reinfection rate using negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for perivascular surgical site infections (SSIs) in the groin after vascular surgery and factors associated with failure of treatment. METHODS: Retrospective data were collected during 2004-2015. Failure of wound treatment was defined as a wound not healed within 4 months, visible graft material or native artery after 1 month, bleeding from the wound leading to discontinuation of treatment, or death or amputation due to the groin infection...

BACKGROUND: The standard treatment of necrotizing soft tissue infection (NSTI) includes extensive surgical debridement. Care of these debridements is challenging because of the size of the wound and associated pain. A potential solution is to leave the wounds open-to-air in the period after the initial debridement, allowing for regular inspection at bedside while reducing pain associated with frequent dressing changes. We evaluated the feasibility of this approach from a pain control standpoint...

The care and the management of the healing of difficult wounds at the level of the skull-facial face many problems related to patient compliance and the need to perform multiple dressings, with long periods of healing and, occasionally, a very long hospitalisation period. The introduction and evolution of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in the treatment of difficult wounds has resulted in better healing, with a drastic reduction in terms of time and biological costs to the patient and cost to the health care system...
