This method employs negative pressure
via a special closed wound dressing by intermittent or continuous application to the wound.6 This negative pressure
launches a biological effect that subsequently leads to improved healing.7 Complex wound treatment is difficult.9 Initially, NPWT was identified as an adjunctive therapy to help heal difficult open wounds and many clinical trials have cited the success of this method in open wound treatment.
