Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

Historical Milestones

Micheal Morykwas, PhD, and Louis Argenta, MD, of Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, publish three articles describing the use of "subatmospheric pressure" to expedite wound healing. The system applied negative pressure to open wounds using an open cell polyurethane sponge sealed with an adhesive drape. Studies in a pig model, and in patients with chronic and difficult wounds, demonstrated the promotion of wound healing.
