Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Poorly healing wounds are a bane to any surgical unit, but particularly in rural areas, and require a lot of effort to manage. One of the most effective recent methods that has been described is the application of topical negative pressure. We describe here a simple system made from the locally available materials that achieves this effect.
