  • Underlying osteomyelitis.
  • Necrotic tissue (slough or eschar)
  • Exposed internal organs (for example Intestines, blood vessels / vascular grafts/ suture junctions etc)

How does NPWT promote wound healing?

  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is the latest in  wound care, which uses subatmospheric pressure.
  • It  increases blood flow to the wound (better blood supply means, quicker healing) and good blood supply brings antibiotics to the wound along with body’s own healing mechanisms.
  • Sucks out wound discharges and  bacteria which otherwise impair growth of granulation tissue in the wound. (Good granulation, means better healing)

  • By removing excess (unwanted) fluid, reduces tissue edema and improves tissue oxygenation.
  • Perfusion of blood improves towards the wound
  • Stimulates and promotes healthy granulation tissue formation
  • Encourages wound contraction and expands the surrounding skin
  • Maintains a moist wound environment
