Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a common method used by plastic surgeons to provide temporary coverage of post-traumatic open lower extremity (LE) fracture wounds. William A. Marmor (@WillMarmor) and his co-authors at Stony Brook University’s Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery examined the effects of early NPWT on rates of complications in LE open fractures at an American College of Surgeons (ACS)-accredited Level I trauma center. He and his co-authors found that the application of NPWT within 24 hours of hospital admission reduced the overall rate of clinical complications and was associated with lower rates of deep infections and hematomas.
