ABTHERA ADVANCE

The Next Generation in Temporary Abdominal Closure

Webinar 25th June 2019 3pm GMT

Surgical Site Infections (SSI) take a significant clinical and economic toll. In Europe 500.000 people per year are affected by an SSI1, hospitalized up to 10 additional days2,7, and 2x as likely to die3. Coating suture material with antibacterial IRGACARE®† MP (Triclosan) is an approach to reduce the risk of SSI. In vitro studies have shown a decrease in the adherence of bacteria to triclosan-coated sutures4. Triclosan-coated sutures have been shown in multiple meta-analysis to reduce the risk of SSIs by 26-28%5,6. Find more here: jnjmedicaldevices.com
The potential clinical impact of triclosan coated sutures has been assessed in an evidence-based guideline for SSI prevention by the WHO. Their recommendation states: “The panel suggests the use of triclosan-coated sutures for the purpose of reducing the risk of SSI, independent of the type of surgery” (Conditional Strength, Moderate Quality)7*.

KCI, an Acelity Company, announces the availability of the ABTHERA ADVANCE™ Open Abdomen Dressing in Europe. ABTHERA ADVANCE™ Dressing is the next generation temporary abdominal closure device leveraging the technology and success of ABTHERA™ Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy in bridging abdominal wall openings where primary closure is not possible and/or repeat abdominal entries are necessary.

The ABTHERA ADVANCE™ Perforated Foam collapses medially while under negative pressure, actively drawing wound edges together. ABTHERA ADVANCE™ Dressing is designed to manage the open abdomen by:

 

  • Actively removing fluid and reducing bowel edema
  • Providing medial tension, which helps minimize fascial retraction and loss of domain
  • Providing a separation between the abdominal wall and viscera, protecting abdominal contents
  • Protecting abdominal contents from the external environment
  • Allowing for rapid re-entry with no requirements for sutures for placement

Surgical Site Infections (SSI) are a common and costly problem, accounting for about 37% of all healthcare-associated infections1,2. Patients with SSI are 2x as likely to spend time in an intensive care unit, 5x more likely to be readmitted after discharge and twice as likely to die1, 2.  Probably most importantly, approximately 40-60% of surgical site infections may be preventable1, 2. In the presence of a foreign body such as suture, it takes only 100 staphylococci per gram of tissue for an SSI to develop3.Surgical Site Infections (SSI) are a common and costly problem, accounting for about 37% of all healthcare-associated infections1,2.
