About

V.A.C.® Therapy is designed to help provide optimal wound healing

The mechanisms of action for V.A.C.® Therapy include drawing wound
edges together; removing infectious materials and wound fluids; promoting perfusion; maintaining a closed, moist wound healing environment and promoting granulation tissue formation.
 
The integrated V.A.C.® Therapy System has a unique mechanism of action whereby the delivery of negative pressure through the V.A.C.® Therapy units using proprietary V.A.C.® GranuFoam™ Dressings, not only maintains a wound environment that promotes healing but also stimulates physiologic responses important to wound healing.
 
How V.A.C.® Therapy promotes wound healing
 
Under negative pressure, V.A.C.® Therapy with proprietary V.A.C.® GranuFoam™ Dressings applies mechanical forces to the wound to create an environment that promotes wound healing. These forces are known as macrostrain and microstrain.1
 
Macrostrain is the visible stretch that occurs when negative pressure contracts the foam.
 
  • Draws wound edges together
  1. Provides direct and complete wound bed contact
  • Evenly distributes negative pressure
  1. Removes exudate and infectious materials
 
Microstrain is the microdeformation at the cellular level, which leads to cell stretch.
 
  • Reduces edema
  1. Promotes perfusion
  • Promotes granulation tissue formation by facilitating cell migration and proliferation

Indications & Applications

Indications & Applications

Indications for Use

The V.A.C. Simplicity™ Therapy System for Veterianry use is an integrated wound management system for use in the clinic or home care settings. It is intended to create an environment that promotes wound healing by secondary or tertiary (delayed primary) intention by preparing the wound bed for closure, reducing edema, promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion, and by removing exudate and infectious material. It is indicated for patients with chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and dehisced wounds, ulcers, flaps and grafts.
 
When used on closed surgical incisions, it is intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or staple closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudates via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.
 

Evidence & Outcomes

V.A.C.® Therapy has the largest body of evidence to date including over 1,000 peer reviewed articles,
45 of which are randomized controlled trials (RCTs). These studies have demonstrated positive clinical outcomes of NPWT, as well as the effectiveness of V.A.C.® Therapy in diabetic foot wounds, chronic wounds (eg, pressure ulcers and lower extremity ulcers), and a variety of acute wounds. Some of these studies are listed below.
