Abstract

The treatment of open wounds is a daily challenge in veterinary medicine. During the past years, a special treatment option, the Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), has been developed. Usage of this therapy significantly increases the healing rate of open wounds as well as free skin grafts in small animals. This review describes the mechanisms of action, indications as well as the known complications associated with this therapy.
