Case 3: A 67 year old male patient presented with Right Lower Limb Cellulitis was admitted to the plastic surgery department of a tertiary care hospital. The present condition has started 2 days prior to the admission where there is unilateral edema in the right lower limb. On 2nd day of hospital stay the patient has undergone Fasciotomy surgery and debridement after which Capture Meditech’s SAC (Suction Assisted Closure) for NPWT was applied.

During the wound therapy with negative pressure the pressure was set at 125mmHg in constant mode for 5 days. The blood sugars were managed with oral hypoglycemic agents and were maintained within the reference ranges.

After 1 session (i.e., 5 days) with SAC – NPWT the surgeon opted for skin grafting. The 1cm depth of the wound was filled with new granulation tissue during the negative pressure therapy and the uptake of skin graft was good as 2 more sessions of SAC – NPWT at a pressure of 125mmHg each 5 days were given post graft application.
