As a new generation of negative pressure drainage technology, vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) can provide stable and persistent negative pressure, and there are several modes to choose from. VAC plays an important role in closing wounds quickly, controlling infection, promoting angiogenesis, increasing blood flow, and promoting granulation tissue growth of wounds. It is now widely applied in all kinds of acute, chronic, and special wounds in clinic with good therapeutic results. However, we need to pay attention to contraindications and complications of VAC when it is used, avoiding secondary damage due to improper treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Post-operative wound infections after spinal surgery is a very serious problem, leading to a risk of significant morbidity which may even lead to prolonged hospitalization. Various treatment protocols have been recommended for debridement, antibiotic, and soft-tissue management, but with mixed results. However, the risk of morbidity is still high with these treatment options. Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) system has been gaining popularity recently in the management of subacute, acute, and chronic wounds...

Acrolentiginous melanoma (ALM) is the second most common nail organ tumour and frequently, affects the thumb or the great toe.(1,2) Digit amputation is still the gold standard for many surgeons;(3) it does, however, not protect against local recurrence. An alternative represents complete tumour resection with distal phalanx preservation, which has proven valuable, especially for well demarcated thinner tumours.(4,5) This article is protected by copyright.

Wound site infections increase costs, hospital stay, morbidity, and mortality. Techniques used for wounds management after laparotomy are primary, delayed primary, and vacuum-assisted closures. The objective of this study is to compare infection rates between those techniques in contaminated and dirty/infected wounds. Eighty-one laparotomized patients with Class III or IV surgical wounds were enrolled in a three-arm randomized prospective study. Patients were allocated to each group with the software Research Randomizer® (Urbaniak, G...

Traditional wound care methods include wound infection control, adequate nutritional supplements, education of changing position every 2-3 h to avoid tissue hypoxia, vacuum assistant closure, debridement, skin graft, and tissue flap. Electric current stimulation, ultrasound, laser, and hydrotherapy have emerged as adjuvant therapies. However, most, if not all, of these therapies are expensive, and the treatment results are variable. The development of the active methods to improve wound healing is mandatory...

BACKGROUND: Esophagopleural and bronchopleural fistulas represent a rare, but life-threatening complication after lung resections, most often after a right pneumonectomy. CASE STUDY: A 64 years old woman was indicated for right pulmectomy for local recurrence of initially stage IIB lung cancer treated by lower lobectomy. On the postoperative day 34, an esophagopleurobronchial fistula occurred. Further course required thoracostomy with closure of the bronchial stump and vacuum-assisted closure therapy and two-phase esophagectomy with 6 weeks interval to the esophageal reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Open abdomen with vacuum assisted closure (VAC) is an alternate method to primary abdominal closure (PAC) in select situations for the management of severe surgical abdominal sepsis or septic shock. Peritoneal cytokines may potentially correlate with deranged physiology and help stratify severity of sepsis. The primary objective of the study was to identify if cytokines can differentiate between patients who underwent PAC or VAC at primary source control laparotomy (SCL). METHODS: Prospective case series including patients with severe abdominal sepsis/septic shock requiring urgent SCL...

Introduction In general surgery, open abdomen treatment (OAT) is used to treat abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) and sepsis, often after a primary surgical procedure associated with complications. The results achieved in this patient population may depend on factors that are yet unknown. This study evaluates independent patient-related prognostic factors after OAT. Methods 38 clinical parameters and survival data of 165 consecutive general surgery patients after OAT were entered into a prospective database according to a defined algorithm in order to analyse the underlying surgical pathology, predictors of survival and important aspects of OAT-related morbidity...

PURPOSE: For approximately 2 decades, vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) therapy has been widely used for the management of complex wounds and soft tissue defects on the external surface of the body. As yet, this technique has not been studied for intraoral wound management. Therefore, this study evaluated the feasibility, safety, and effectiveness of intraoral VAC therapy in patients with medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). PATIENTS AND METHODS: After successful construction of an intraoral device providing sufficient airtight sealing, individually manufactured appliances were used in a prospective clinical trial of 3 patients using the VAC therapy system...

REVIEW
Paul Schipper, Brandon H Tieu
Acute chest wall infections are uncommon and share similar risk factors for infection at other surgical sites. Smoking cessation has been shown to decrease the risk of surgical site infection. Depending on the depth of infection and/or involvement of the organ space, adequate therapy involves antibiotics and drainage. Early diagnosis and debridement of necrotizing soft tissue infections is essential to reduce mortality. Sternoclavicular joint infections require surgical debridement, en bloc resection, and antibiotic therapy...
