Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a widely used wound management system. Several articles have been published on the advantages and complications of this system. Abdominal dressing negative pressure system (abdominal NPWT) is a newer technology, developed and used in open abdomen cases. The adherence of the sponge to the intra-abdominal organs is prevented by a polyurethane foam. This study presents a number of case series where an abdominal NPWT (ABThera, KCl, US) has been used to treat other vital organs, helping to prevent complications such as organ rupture and fatal bleeding.
