Negative-pressure wound therapy for managing complicated wounds at extracorporeal membrane oxygenation sites

from MDLinx

In this single-center retrospective study, researchers assessed the effectiveness of negative-pressure wound therapy in managing wound complications at removal sites for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Nine patients (range, 14–64 years) were subjected to NPWT at ECMO sites for complicated wounds. All patients had lymphorrhea and skin necrosis wound complications. Wound healing was achieved without recurrence of wound complications by primary closure, skin graft, or secondary healing. During the NPWT application, there were no cases of femoral vessel injury or aneurysm. In the management of complicated wounds at ECMO sites, NPWT seems to be a safe and effective treatment option. more
