PMID:  19237399     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Wound complications following surgical resection in patients treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy are common and can be a difficult problem to manage. Negative pressure dressing technology appears to be safe and effective in the treatment of radiation-associated wound complications and can be used in the outpatients clinic setting. The presented case demonstrates that negative pressure dressing also manages the hydropneumothorax as a result of the dehiscence of the thoracic wall.
