Ether-Based Polyurethane Foam for Vacuum-Assisted Closure (V.A.C.) of Complicated Postoperative Abdominal Wound Dehiscence


Abstract:
Background. The macroporous polyurethane ether foam was introduced in the medical field, as early as the 90 ties, for the Vacuum-assisted closure (V.A.C.) of a wound. We describe our experience after treating abdominal wound dehiscence in a group of elderly gynecological patients with NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy), using ether foam coated with a silver layer. We reviewed elderly patients chart data that underwent abdominal surgery complicated with wound dehiscence treated with VAC for eighteen months. In all patients, the system used was the standard GranuFoam Silver™ dressing (different extents), which was usually replaced every 48/72 h. A total of 15 consecutive female patients were included. The median age was 67.3 (58-71) years. Duration of VAC treatment was median 14.2 (11-34) days, and we saw an improvement in wound repair but also clearance of S.S.I. on the third day after applying V.A.C. Ulta™. Definitive secondary closure of the wound was obtained in all patients, as the infection’s site clearance. The abdominal VAC treatment with GranuFoam Silver™ dressing in patients with infected abdominal wound dehiscence is safe and has proper patient compliance. The latest evolution of the silver foam polyether dressing, in conjunction with NPWT therapy, offers a better antimicrobial effect and shorter healing stage.
