Dr. Gowtham Pandiaraj K, Dr. Nandhana Prashanth.V, Ravi. P M. S

Background: In a method to achieve effective wound healing and reduce disability, negative pressure wound therapy had been introduced and to cut down the cost that causes severe burden to the patients which cumulatively cut down of the time spent for wound healing and dressing. Method: In this study compromising 25diabetic ulcer patients wound scoring system was used After the commencement of NPWT, the percentage of granulation at the end of every three days were analyzed. At the end of 3rd, 7th and 10th day. Result: 12 observed granulation tissue deposition in 90 % of wound area within one week and 1 wounds, 76 % of cases developed healthy granulation after being treated by NPWT for 3 more days 19 wounds (72 %) had attained granulation of 100 % and were taken up for grafting. Rest 6 patients had >75 % granulation tissue over the wound before closure of the wound. 2 wounds that did not attain satisfactory granulation were taken up for collagen dressing. Conclusion: We are able to overcome the cost limitation with cost effective negative pressure wound theraphy that had similar results when compared with conventional negative pressure wound theraphy.
