An important role of the system has a foam dressing that connects the wound with the vacuum. In general the sponge used in vacuum assisted therapies is made of polyurethane foam. We present the case of a 51-year-old male patient with a history of deep vein thrombosis (known for about 3 years) diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis (NF). In this patient, after each step of the surgical treatment (large debridement and skin grafting) negative pressure wound therapy using polyurethane foam was used.
