Coby Richter, DVM, DACVS, explains Vacuum Assisted Wound Closure (VAC Therapy) and its applications for veterinary patients. A case study is included.
Vacuum assisted wound closure (VAC), also referred to as negative pressure wound therapy, has been utilized with growing popularity in human medicine since the mid 1980’s. The basic concept is to subject a wound to subatmospheric pressure within a closed environment. Veterinary use of VAC was first seen in literature in 1997.
