Group A was treated with conventional negative pressure wound therapy applied at 125 mm Hg for 30 mins/hour, whereas in group B irrigation of normal saline was done through drain till the time roll gauze was visibly wet through transparent dressing indicated by change in color.
The researchers found no difference between the groups in the occurrence of observed superficial surgical site infections (prophylactic negative pressure wound therapy group, 15 percent, versus 10 percent for women receiving the standard dressing; P = 0.35).
In NPWT, also called sub-atmospheric pressure therapy, vacuum assisted closure (VAC), vacuum sealing, vacuum pack therapy, and sealing aspirative therapy, the sub-atmospheric pressure was directed at the surface of the wound through an interface (polyurethane sponge/gauze), allowing distribution of the negative pressure and use of either a constant or intermittent mode of pressure application.
Potential Solutions for the Negative Pressure Issue
A standard pistol grip was modified to hold a standard disposable syringe of 10ml or 20 ml capacity and also maintain negative pressure. This device is simple and light weight (100g).
