Evolving Utility of Negative Pressure Therapy in Arthroplasty Patients: Review of New Clinical Evidence to Reduce Complications and Improve Functional Outcomes
KCI – An Acelity Company
Wound complications are reported in up to 10% of hip and knee arthroplasties. The incidence of postoperative wound complications is influenced by diabetes, obesity, quality of soft tissues, use of steroids, soft tissue handling and duration and complexity of surgery. We will explore the latest clinical evidence evaluating closed incision negative pressure therapy (CiNPT) to reduce postoperative complications and the emerging role of negative pressure in improving functional outcomes.
Lunch will be served.
