Abstract: To assess the efficacy of topical negative pressure moist wound dressing as compared to conventional moist wound dressing in improving the healing process of chronic wounds and to prove that negative pressure dressings can be used as a much better treatment option in the management of chronic wounds. This is a prospective study where data from 106 patients with chronic wounds were observed. Out of 106 patients, 53 underwent topical negative pressure dressings and remaining 53 underwent conventional dressings. After a period of 3 weeks, it was observed that patients who underwent topical negative pressure dressing, the mean rate of granulation tissue formation was ~ 81.47 % as compared to 53.57 % in those who underwent conventional moist dressing.
