Kinetic Concepts, Inc. introduces the Prevena™ Incision Management System. The system leverages negative pressure wound therapy with the V.A.C.® Therapy System, which is used to treat complex open wounds since its introduction.
The Prevena™ System is expected to be used most often for linear incisions associated with general surgery, OB/GYN, orthopedic and cardiothoracic incisions. Designed for single-patient use, the Prevena™ System is indicated for use over clean, closed incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure. It acts by:
- Removing exudate and potentially infectious material.
- Protecting the surgical site from external contamination.
- Providing a clean, protected postoperative wound environment.
- Helping draw the edges of the incision together.
