Wounds International Middle East expert forum on NPWT in infected wounds

9 May 2016

Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is an important option for the advanced management of many wound types1. Over recent years, NPWT has revolutionised care for many patients with chronic and acute wounds and this success has prompted the development of new types of NPWT system.

In November 2015, a group of clinicians from the Gulf region met in Dubai to discuss the role of NPWT in the management of infected wounds and to explore the potential for innovative NPWT systems to manage complex acute and chronic wounds. 

​Following the meeting, an initial draft of this document was developed and underwent review by the expert group. This final consensus represents the views of the expert group, and is designed to raise awareness of the role of NPWT in the management of complex wounds and provide recommendations for using NPWT in the prevention and treatment of infection in a range of wound types.
