Abstract

Wound complications involving large subcutaneous vessels can cause significant challenges for surgeons. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been increasingly used for treating complex wounds in vascular surgery, including groin infections, either as a bridge to surgical closure or as a primary wound treatment modality. Although a growing body of evidence exists for managing various problematic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and open abdominal wounds, the role of NPWT in wounds involving large blood vessels or wounds complicating infected vascular grafts has not been well defined. A multidisciplinary advisory panel reviewed the literature relevant to wounds related to vascular surgical procedures and complications, focusing on large subcutaneous or infected vascular conduits. The results supported by the literature and the clinical practice of the consensus panel suggested that NPWT can be a useful adjunct to the management of vascular groin infections and dehiscences but must be used with caution.
