"Negative Pressure Wound Therapy as mangement of a chronic distal limb wound in the horse.";
Journal of Equine Veterinary Science,
Wound healing in distal limb wounds with tissue loss in horses may be an expensive and long process due to prolonged inflammatory phase. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) (also known as vacuum-assisted closure) is well established method of wound therapy in human plastic and reconstructive surgery for many years. It consists of a leak free bandage and a pump that applies subatmospheric pressure to the wound area. This report describes the successful use of the NPWT intended for the suppression of exuberant granulation tissue development of the wound on distal limb in a horse.
