To describe for the first time in literature the specific methodology of use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for duodenal fistula through clinical cases. The constant increase of use of NPWT for complex surgical situations imposes tailored previously undescribed solutions for the technique.
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.
Optimal wound healing with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) relies on a properly sealed vacuum system. Anatomically difficult wounds impair the adhesive dressing, which results in air leaks that disrupt the integrity of the NPWT system and hinder wound healing.
Diabetes is a serious disease with severe side effects and comorbidities. Diabetic foot with its chronic non-healing ulcers, or diabetic food ulcers (DFU) as they are commonly called, can be devastating, even leading to amputation. Many therapies exist to assist and improve wound healing. One exciting discovery is the use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) as an adjunct to standard treatment. Few studies have substantively explored the molecular mechanisms of NPWT and why we see improved wound healin...
Recently, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a rising technology to improve wound healing. In clinical application, it benefits fast debridement and wound close, limits infection, and promotes wound healing. It is an effective therapy for all kinds of acute or chronic wound. Currently, researches demonstrate that NPWT promotes angiogenesis, granulation tissue growth, and extracellular matrix remodeling through regulating the signaling of anti-inflammatory cytokines, mechanicalreceptor and chemorecept...
Our group has reported that negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) decreases tissue oxygenation by 84% in the foot of diabetic patients because the pad of the connecting drainage tube and foam sponge of the NPWT system compress the wound bed. The purpose of this study was to determine whether an NPWT modified dressing application reduces tissue oxygenation in the feet of persons with diabetes mellitus.
Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is an established treatment modality in dermatologic surgery, but proof of evidence for efficacy is inconclusive.
there can be serious consequences for patients if negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is performed incorrectly and patient safety must be paramount. The existing literature was found to mainly concentrate on the use of the technology from the patient perspective. This article examines the opinions of nurses who apply the therapy.
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a life-threatening condition in which rapid diagnosis, debridement of nonviable tissue, and broad-spectrum antibiotics are critical to effective treatment. The debridement required can be extensive, resulting in large wounds that can sometimes be covered with split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs) with the help of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), or vacuum-assisted closure, to decrease the wound size.
We report the first meta-analysis on the impact of prophylactic use of a specific design of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) device on surgical site complications.
The current clinical standard for local antibiotic depot is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) beads. Unfortunately, these are not ideal and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) reduces their limited effectiveness. Recently, a chitosan sponge has been shown to be an effective carrier of antibiotics. Since it acts as a delivery vehicle with increased wound contact area instead of an antibiotic depot, it may be more effective. The objectives of this study are to determine if 1) a chitosan sponge would be more ef...
Negative-pressure wound therapy has been widely adopted to reduce the complexity of treating a broad range of acute and chronic wounds. However, its cost is high. The objective of this study was to evaluate the following two different methods of negative-pressure wound therapy in terms of healing time: a low-cost method of negative-pressure wound therapy (a pressure stabilizer device connected to a hospital wall-vacuum system with a gauze-sealed dressing, USP) and the standard of care (vacuum-assisted closu...
Loss of domain often complicates attempts at delayed wound closure in regions of high tension. Wound temporization with traction-assisted internal negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), using bridging retention sutures, can minimize the effects of edema and elastic recoil that contribute to progressive tissue retraction over time. The investigators evaluated the safety and efficacy of this technique for complex wound closure.
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 injur...
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 o...
The purpose of this study was to characterize associations among serum proteins, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) fluid loss, and primary fascial closure (PFC) following emergent laparotomy and temporary abdominal closure (TAC). We hypothesized that high levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and NPWT output would be associated with hypoalbuminemia and failure to achieve PFC.
The surgical site infection (SSI) rate in vascular surgery after groin incision for lower extremity revascularization can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. This trial was designed to study the effect of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) on SSI in closed groin wounds after lower extremity revascularization in patients at high risk for SSI.
To summarize available studies on wound complication outcomes after prophylactic negative pressure wound therapy for obese women (body mass index 30 or greater).
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 wi...
Development of drug therapies and other techniques for wound care have resulted in significant improvement of the cure rate and shortening of the healing time for wounds. A modified technique of regulated oxygen-enriched negative pressure-assisted wound therapy (RO-NPT) has been reported.
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 wo...
Evaluation of inguinal vascular surgical scars treated with closed incisional negative pressure wound therapy using three-dimensional digital imaging - a randomized controlled trial on bilateral incisions.
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.
An open abdomen complicated with small-bowel fistulae becomes a complex wound for local infection, systemic sepsis and persistent soiling irritation by intestinal content. While controlling the fistulae drainage, protecting surrounding skin, healing the wound maybe a challenge.
With a special focus on advanced wound healing (wound bed preparation, epithelialisation and hydration) and negative pressure wound therapy, the Hartmann LINK for Wound Healing Congress took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on 19 September. The event aimed to promote the latest advances in wound care and highlight the main challenges that clinicians face when treating different types of wounds. Annabel De Coster, editor of the British Journal of Community Nursing, gives an overview of selected talks from...
