Abstract
Wound dehiscence and SSI’s can have a profound impact on patients, as they often require hospital re-admission, additional surgical interventions, lengthy IV antibiotic administration and delayed rehabilitation. Negative pressure wound therapy(NPWT) exposes the wound site to negative pressure, resulting in the improvement of blood supply, removal of excess fluid and stimulation of cellular proliferation of granulation tissue.
