The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of negative pressure therapy (NPT) in the treatment of complex wounds, with emphasis on its mechanisms of action and main therapeutic indications. We searched the Pubmed / Medline database for articles published from 1997 to 2016, and selected the most relevant ones. The mechanisms of action of NPT involveboth physical effects, such as increased perfusion, control of edema and exudate, reduction of wound dimensions and bacterial clearance, and biological ones, such as the stimulation of granulation tissue formation, microdeformations and reduction of Inflammatory response...

Background: Lumbar hernias are rare. Usually manifest with reducible volume increase in the post-lateral region of the abdomen and may occur in two specific anatomic defects: the triangles of Grynfelt (upper) and Petit (lower). Despite controversies with better repair, laparoscopic approach, following the same principle of the treatment of inguinal hernias, seems to present significant advantages compared to conventional/open surgeries. However, some technical and anatomical details of the region, non usual to general surgeons, are fundamental for proper repair...

Following the proposal of Oedekoven we investigated the method of continuous and rapid skin enlargement by dynamic traction (which we named the CORSET-method) at the border of wounds, applied through elastic silicon rubber bands. Since March 1992 we operated more than 20 patients. By means of the "rubber bands" mentioned above soft tissues can be stimulated to grow, that is to say increase the area of skin that had to be treated with transplants priorily in order to close soft tissue defects following a compartment-syndrome or septic complications in the abdomic wall following operations in the abdomen...
