About Surgical Incision Management

Poor incision healing can lead to serious patient consequences such as surgical site infections (SSI), dehiscence, hematoma or seromas.
Acelity provides advanced negative pressure therapies and post-operative dressings designed to help manage and protect closed surgical incisions.

The Science Behind Our Products

Acelity solutions are built on an extensive understanding of incision management, supported by a large body of clinical evidence.

  • SSIs account for 21.8% of all healthcare-associated infections2
  • Of the top 5 Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs), SSIs account for 33.7% of the $9.8 billion cost to the healthcare system*1
*Top five HAIs are central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), Clostridium difficile infection (C diff), surgical site infection and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI).
