Evaluating the effects of immediate application of negative pressure therapy after decompression from abdominal compartment syndrome in an experimental porcine model

Abstract

The purpose of this large-animal study was to assess the safety and effects of negative pressure therapy (NPT) when used as temporary abdominal closure in the immediate post-decompression period after abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Using a hemorrhagic shock/resuscitation and mesenteric venous pressure elevation model, ACS was physiologically induced… (More)
