The Use of Post-operative NPWT Dressing in the Prevention of Infectious Complications After Ostomy Reversal Surgery

2019-09-19 03:56:52 | BioPortfolio


Introduction: Although negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is likely advantageous for wound healing, the efficacy and safety of its prophylactic use remain unclear. We performed a Randomized Control Trial to assess the usefulness of postoperative NPWT in reduction of postoperative wound healing complications and surgical site infections after diverting ileostomy closure, in the group of patients previously operated for colorectal resection due to cancer.

Materials & Methods: Prospective, randomized study will be conducted. Patients with past history of colorectal cancer laparoscopic surgery with protective loop ileostomy scheduled to undergo ileostomy closure with primary wound closure will be randomly divided into groups with or without NPWT. The primary endpoint are incidence of wound related complications (WRC) (wound healing complications witch required surgical intervention other than suture removal or dressing changing). The secondary endpoints are incidences of Surgical Site Infection (SSI) and length of postoperative hospital stay (LOS) and length of complete wound healing (CWH). Cost analysis will also be performed.

In first step of this study between January 2016 and December 2018 we will asses the usefulness of one of the NPWT devices (NANOVA KCI) in prevention of WHC in established group. The second part of the study will be performed in 2 centers between January 2019 and December 2021. In this step we want to compere other NPWT devices in the same application and to confirm single center outcomes .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.

A species of gram-positive, aerobic bacteria commonly found in soil and occasionally isolated from sputum. It causes postoperative wound infections as well as gluteal abscesses.

Hemorrhage following any surgical procedure. It may be immediate or delayed and is not restricted to the surgical wound.

Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
