Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

Historical Milestones

Davydov et al:

Retrospective review of 744 subjects, examining various treatment modalities for treating purulent wounds following aggressive surgical debridement.
406 subjects received NPWT; 338 subjects received surgical debridement alone.
The authors noted "a pronounced immunocorrecting effect" associated with vacuum therapy.
The vacuum subjects experienced fewer infectious complications and needed fewer repeat surgeries than the group that received debridement alone.
The other modalities examined (fluid pulse jets, enzymatic debridement, laser and ultrasound necrolysis, and forced suction), were considered not "universal enough to affect all elements of the biological system of healing during the inflammatory phase."
