BACKGROUND Negative pressure wound therapy use over closed surgical incisions (iNPWT) has proven to be effective at reducing hematoma, wound drainage and infection in high-risk wounds. The purpose of this study was to determine if iNPWT decreased the risk of infection in patients undergoing open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) for acetabular fractures. METHODS 71 patients who underwent operative intervention for an acetabular fracture between March 2008 and September 2012 consented and… CONTINUE READING
