Abstract

A new reticulated open-cell foam dressing with through holes (ROCF-CC) has been introduced to assist with wound cleansing by removing thick wound exudate and infectious materials during neg- ative pressure wound therapy with instillation. Due to the limited published evidence supporting use of ROCF-CC dressings with negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d), clinicians have been relying on practical application experience to gain pro ciency with the dressing and NPWTi-d. To help provide general guidelines for safe and e cient use of ROCF-CC dressings with NPWTi-d, a multidisciplinary expert panel of clinicians was convened from September 28 to 29, 2017. Principal aims of the meeting were to develop recommendations based on panel members' experience and lim- ited published results for use of ROCF-CC dressings, appropriate wound and patient characteristics for use, application settings, and clinical techniques to optimize outcomes. An algorithm to guide use of ROCF-CC dressings with NPWTi-d was also created. Panelists recommended the following goals for using ROCF-CC dressings: cleanse wounds when areas of slough or nonviable tissue remain on the wound surface, remove thick exudate, remove infectious materials, promote granulation tissue formation, and help provide a bridge to a de ned endpoint. Negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time with ROCF-CC dressings may be an appropriate adjunct therapy for wound cleansing, especially in cases when sharp excisional debridement is not available or appropriate. All panel members agreed that controlled clinical and scienti c studies of NPWTi-d with ROCF-CC are needed to further elucidate best practices and e ectiveness in various wound types.
