Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In May 2011, an international panel of wound care experts from multiple disciplines convened to develop this document to summarise the evolution of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) technology devices over the past 15 years, specifically concentrating on the V.A.C.(®) Therapy (KCI USA, Inc., San Antonio, TX) family of products. The aim of this document, which will be comprised of six articles, is to describe appropriate use of current technology options across a variety of wound types. The articles will include literature reviews, initiation criteria, treatment outcomes, technical pearls and clinical cases that will show the enhanced outcomes and potential economic value of the various NPWT technologies in use today.
