Published Literature Review Demonstrates Promise of V.A.C. VeraFlo™ Therapy in Wound Treatment

Released : 20 Julho 2015

SAN ANTONIO, July 20, 2015 — Acelity, a global wound care and regenerative medicine company, is pleased to announce that a recent peer-reviewed publication in International Wound Journal supports the use of negative pressure wound therapy with intermittent instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d; V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy) in the treatment of acute and chronic wounds. In this publication, the authors noted the use of V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy as a first-line therapy in a wide subset of complex wounds. The authors also proposed a clinical approach for appropriate application of NPWTi-d which is supported with a case series demonstrating successful use.

“Our findings suggest that with patient optimization and proper debridement, V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy is an important part of an active wound closure strategy,” said first author Subhas Gupta, MD, CM, PhD, FRCSC, FACS, Department of Plastic Surgery, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, California. “I look forward to reviewing the results of clinical data Acelity is currently collecting to better characterize the role this promising therapy can play in providing the best approach for wound treatment.”

Negative pressure wound therapy is a well-established advanced therapy, and the introduction of automated volumetric delivery of topical wound solutions with an adjustable dwell time in combination with NPWT has been shown to demonstrate clinical and economic benefits in wound healing. V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy is the only system that offers intermittent instillation with dwell.

“This study emphasizes the importance of advanced wound therapies such as V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy in helping clinicians more efficiently and accurately treat their patients,” said Ron Silverman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Acelity. “As a leader in negative pressure wound therapy, we are committed to investing in the collection of clinical data, and look forward to additional research evaluating the value and efficacy of topical wound solution delivery with dwell in combination with NPWT through V.A.C. VeraFlo Therapy.”
