V.A.C.® Therapy for Wounds

Since its introduction in 1995 (U.S.) / 1994 (Europe), V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are healed. With more published clinical evidence than any other form of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, V.A.C.® Therapy has been selected as the treatment of choice for more than 7,000,000 wounds worldwide*.

V.A.C.® Therapy promotes wound healing through Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). By delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a patented dressing, this helps draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and actively promote granulation.

KCI's proprietary V.A.C.
® Therapy System has revolutionized the way in which caregivers treat the most serious, complex wounds. V.A.C. Therapy utilizes an open-cell polymer foam dressing that is conformed to the wound bed. When sealed and placed under negative (vacuum) pressure, the system creates a unique wound healing environment that has been shown to promote the wound healing process, reduce edema, prepare the wound bed for closure, promote the formation of granulation tissue and remove infectious materials.
