Acelity Launches PREVENA PLUS™ Incision Management System with Customizable Dressing for Range of Complex Procedures
Sep 7 16
Acelity announced the expansion of its PREVENA™ Therapy portfolio with the global launch of the PREVENA PLUS™ Incision Management System. The PREVENA PLUS™ System offers the proven effectiveness of closed incision negative pressure therapy (ciNPT) with improved versatility, portability, and flexibility. PREVENA™ Therapy helps hold incision edges together and protects incisions from external infectious sources, and the new PREVENA PLUS™ System, now available in the United States and various global markets, includes a Customizable Dressing designed for linear, non-linear, and intersecting incisions up to 90cm in length. The PREVENA PLUS™ Incision Management System is designed specifically for the management of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure. The System enables clinicians to manage incisions up to 90 cm in length with an adjustable dressing, and allows a surgeon to apply PREVENA™ Therapy following a number of procedures including laparotomy, panniculectomy, spinal fusion, revision hip and knee arthroplasty and lower extremity trauma fracture. It uses a foam bolster to provide negative pressure at -125mmHg for up to seven days and patented SENSAT.R.A.C™ Technology that monitors and maintains pressure at the incision site. It includes a replaceable 150ml canister to keep exudates away from the incision site. PREVENA™ Therapy covers and protects incisions from external contamination, while negative pressure removes fluid and infectious material from the site. PREVENA™ Therapy Systems are optimized for patient safety with visual and audible alarms and ionic silver within the interface layer designed to reduce bacterial colonization in the fabric.
Acelity Introduces New Product
Aug 3 16
Acelity has introduced a new product nationally that will make it less painful for patients to change their wound dressings. The Biosorb Gelling Fiber Dressing forms a gel when it comes into contact with an open wound. The gel offers increased absorbency and holds its shape, which allows for intact removal of the dressing. It can be used on a wide range of open wounds, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, open surgical wounds, partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds and cancer-related wounds. Such chronic and surgical wounds affect more than 10.5 million people in the United States and Europe. The Biosorb product also will be available in Europe in the coming months. Acelity, which employs 1,500 people at its San Antonio headquarters, specializes in advanced wound care and regenerative medicine.
