Abstract: Negative pressure wound therapy is a growing trend for beneficial healing of chronic non healing ulcers. Conventional dressings though serve the purpose require lot of time to achieve satisfactory results. Vacuum assisted closure of the wounds is a suitable alternative in early healing, better outcome of chronic wounds. In our study a total of 60 patients were taken and compared with negative pressure dressing, betadine dressing and saline dressings in three groups namely a, b, c respectively. In our study 80% are females out of which 40% are diabetic on medication. Reduction in depth of ulcer which signifies growth of granulation tissue was measured in millimeters. In our study it was found that the application of negative pressure wound dressing increased the rate of formation of granulation tissue and had better graft up take than the patients who underwent betadine dressing or saline dressings. The patient in the study group had better patient compliance and had a shorter duration of hospital stay and is cost effective when compared to other two groups.
