Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), is a therapeutic technique using a suction pump, tubing, and a dressing to remove excess exudate and promote healing in acute or chronic wounds. The therapy involves the controlled application of subatmospheric pressure to the local wound, using a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump.
Negative Pressure Therapy Journal (NPWTJ) aims to provide a forum for the exchange of scientific discoveries. The journal covers all topics related to the use of negative pressure therapy. We welcome case reports, original studies, description of novel devices and techniques, reviews and letters to the editor as well as conference reports.
