Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

Goals of NPWT

 

A core principle of wound management is to properly prepare the wound for closing. That's why it's important to remember that NPWT, as interim therapy, should be discontinued once the condition of a wound is suitable for closing, either spontaneously or surgically.

NPWT is indicated for vacuum assisted drainage, for patients who would benefit from a suction device, particularly as the device may promote wound healing.

NPWT is contraindicated in the presence of:

Necrotic tissue
Unexplored or non-enteric fistulas
Untreated osteomyelitis
Wounds containing malignant tissue
Exposed arteries, veins, or organs

 

No treatment for serious wounds provides a "one-size-fits-all" solution from injury to healing. New, advanced NPWT equipment and protocols (sophisticated and full-featured, yet flexible and practical) allow for customized treatment approaches for each wound, based on its characteristics during the phases of healing.

The huge challenge to the healthcare system of treating acute, chronic, and complicated wounds, make cost effectiveness and efficiency of NPWT very important. Patient comfort and compliance are key in optimizing the application of NPWT.
