ABTHERA™ Therapy

Specifically Designed for the Management of the Open Abdomen

ABTHERA™ Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy provides an active temporary abdominal closure (TAC) system, designed to remove fluids from the abdominal cavity and draw wound edges together, helping to achieve primary fascial closure while protecting abdominal contents from external contaminates.

ABTHERA™ Therapy is designed to:

  • Actively remove fluid and help reduce edema1,2
  • Provide medial tension, which helps minimize fascial retraction and loss of domain2,3,4
  • Help protect abdominal contents from external environment
  • Provide separation between the abdominal wall and viscera, protecting abdominal contents
  • Allows for rapid access for re-entry and does not require sutures for placement

When negative pressure is applied, the foam transfers negative pressure from the therapy unit to the visceral protective layer (VPL).  Exudate and infectious material throughout the abdomen and within the paracolic gutters are removed through the VPL. At the same time, the perforated foam and the encapsulated foam within the VPL collapse medially, drawing fascial edges closer together, helping minimize fascial retraction and loss of domain.
